Best tamale ever

Mexican Fiesta replaced by this Santa Fe chain and although we really liked the Fiesta this place is much better.

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.

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.

Santa Fe Mexican Grill has changed from using Lard to Vegetable oil in their re fried beans. They are still maintaining the same quality for the last five years since I visited them in 1990 for the first time. They are located conveniently in the city and has ample parking places.

Sante Fe Mexican Grill is now serving vegetarian beans (No lard). It is good news for all vegetarians like me. That way we don't have to go a long way looking for Mexican place that serve vegetarian beans. Service is pretty good too.

This is a favorite of ours and even if the menu changes they will always make what you want, With a good menu of seafood and meats it's still authentic and great tasting,

My wife and I go at least one a month. I usually get the burrito al pastor and end up taking half of it home. The service is fast and courteous and the inside is always nice and clean.

We went here after buying new car. Were promptly seated, service was good and food was very tasty with good size portions.Does not look like anything special from the outside but inside is very cozy with décor.Located in small strip store area. Not a whole lot of parking but not to bad. Overall very good place to go.
