This is the place to go on the Eastside for good Mexican food! The restaurant is casual, the waitstaff and service top notch! The food is delicious and plentiful while the cost is affordable.

A new location in Kingsgate brings the family restaurant a second location. The recipes are the same and the coos execute well. as with the original they will prepare what you want, even if its not on the menu ! Try the camarones ala crema for a real treat. Brother and sister each run one of the restaurants and use... More

This is the best Mexican Resturaunt that I've found in Kirkland. Good prices really good food a little different from Tex Mex but I'll take it. The portions are generous and ingredients are fresh and top notch. This gem is good anytime but can get packed. Parking not bad if you can't find it up front then park around back.... More

We have driven by this restaurant on many occasions, and wondered if it was any good. So on Cinco de Mayo we decided to give it a try. We were happily pleased. Located in a strip mall, it would be very easy to pass it by. But going in is another story. The restaurant is warm and inviting, with genuinely... More

We were visiting Kirkland area and stopped at Santa Fe Mexican Grille. Super friendly staff and great food. We hardly made it in the door and someone greeted us and sat us right a way. The place was very busy and I was sure we would have to wait. Order was taken and food arrived shortly. Chips and Salsa are... More

We go here a couple of times a month at least. We feel very welcome and at home - they do a great job with just about everythin on the menu and the staff is friendly, efficient, and personable. You can't go wrong here - and their success is evidence of that!

Mexican Fiesta replaced by this Santa Fe chain and although we really liked the Fiesta this place is much better. First of all the chips they serve are fresh and not greasy and the salsa is just the right amount of spicy. My wife had two cheese enchiladas with rice and beans. She loved it and said the rice was... More

Santa Fe Mexican Grill is a nice little find in the Totem Lake area of Kirkland. The decor and atmosphere is great for a small place. Nice artwork and the walls make you feel like you are in a Mexican village. Service was great too. No complaints on the food either. Not the best ever, but the chili verde pork... More

We have been to this restaurant many times. Each time the food is excellent and the staff is attentive. The prices are excellent also for this area as restaurant prices where I live are too high.

I was really pleased with this restaurant. My family visited us for our wedding in Bellevue. I took them to dinner at Santa Fe restaurant. They all agreed that it was better then the food served in New Mexico.
