Excellent meal!

Very quiet and discreet, but very fresh and well prepared products. We had steak, and shrimps, perfectly cooked,at a price really low. Half price from Santa Fe downtown.

We had driven over to the plaza in Santa Fe for a few last minute souvenirs to take back with us. We quickly grabbed some items and left plaza. We wanted to leave the hustle and bustle of the plaza and head toward our next destination which was Tucamcari. We were all hungry by this time but as mentioned, we... More

We visited this restaurant because it was close to the interstate. At peak lunch hour, only one other party was in the restaurant with us. I would have left at this sign if I wasn't so hungry. We had to salt the salsa because it was so bland. My green chili enchiladas were pretty good. Our service was friendly but... More

We stopped here for a light dinner. There were four of us. As we had had a large lunch, we split two bison burgers among us. There was a nice selection of beers, some of them on tap. The bison burgers were as ordered and satisfying. Later in the week, we did takeout and we all ordered the same burgers... More

We enjoyed a casual lunch at La Pancha. Food was tasty and generous portion and reasonably priced. Good variety of menu items. Would like to try their breakfast menu.

We were on an emotional low thanks to the sad news of Epazote's demise but this charming place made us forget that for a little while. Lamb burger special for spouse and Chile relleno special for me. Just delicious. Very good food. Excellent portion size for lunch and reasonable price. Will definitely visit again. Very nice server too.

Juan Carlos' Salvadorian Tamales are SOOOOO good! Wrapped in banana leaves.... they are so much more tender than the run-of-the-mill tamales served all over Santa Fe! And generous portions of chicken inside! Also try the freshly made potato chips! A real treat!

We had lunch at the restaurant today, two sandwiches which were eatable, but not very good nor as described on the menu. There around 1 PM and only 3 tables with customers. We do not plan on going there again, sorry.

This restaurants touts itself as Latin American, but you certainly can find some typical New Mexican fare here as well. We were here on a Saturday at 5:00 and the place was quiet. It was a cozy atmosphere, good for talking. The entrees have unique twists that make them special. There was a nice array of vegetarian options. Our server... More

Great place to stop outside of busy town to eat. Very clean and nice people. Food was the real deal southwest grub. Try the poblanos they are stuffed with everything. Best I've had.
