Going Back for More

I went for late lunch (2:30pm) and was prompted greeted walking through the door. I was immediately seated and given ample time to choose my courses. My margarita was great. The mix they use seems to have a hint of pepper spice to it (which I like). I ordered Huevos Rancheros with whole beans for... read more

This place used to be a teriyaki place for the longest time. Then it became a herfys and now santa fe. I frequent Mexican restaurant often, Santa fe in my opinion is an average restaurant with great service. I was not impressed by the food there based on the other places I have been. I also felt it was a... More

I have had the pleasure of eating here on several occasions and have consistently found it to be delicious! Clean environment, friendly waitstaff and great food and drinks. If I had to find one thing remotely negative, I would have to recommend the Seafood/Crab enchiladas only when crab is in season. I have tried it twice. In season was amazing... More

I'm guessing the building this Grill occupies has been many things over the years, it has been painted and cleaned by the current owner but shows signs of wear. The front deck is noisy from street traffic but I chose open air to a crowded feeling inside. It looks like they tried to place too many tables in the dining... More

Local favorite came highly recommended, I can see why. Good sized portions and they aren't charging a "Kings Ransom" for it! Steady flow of customers eating in and lots taking out. Carne was very good. I would say I will be back.

Ate with a relative at a table outside the restaurant. We had their lunch special, and it tasted very good. Friendly, multilingual staff and a good buy.

This is a small place that looks like a fast food joint, but do not be deceived! The food is great and the people there are very friendly.

We're longtime diners at La Hacienda, and last night deviated from routine to try out the relatively new Santa Fe Mexican Grill in Renton Highlands. Actually, my boyfriend was somewhat leery about it, since he's frequented La Hacienda for over 20 years. He was delighted to see a familiar face at Santa Fe, though. The owner turned out to be...

Had heard about this restaurant from friends and decided to check it out. Really surprised at how good this was. Husband and I did lunch. We have noticed that as the economy goes down, so does the quality of Mexican food in restaurants. This was excellent, service fast and friendly. Had enchilada, chili relleno, and chimichanga. Rice and beans. Guacamole... More
