Excellent, interesting food

We had an excellent meal and excellent service at La Plancha when traveling through Santa Fe on our fall vacation. I made the terrible mistake of leaving a favorite cap in the booth and didn't discover my mistake until 1 hour down the road. I called to offer to pay to have it shipped and they would hear nothing of... More

If you are heading to I 20E from Santa Fe ( from I 25) on US285 you are about to head into a culinary wasteland. Fortunately, just off I25 there is a very good Latin grill La Plancha de Eldorado. I had the Beef steak adobo and it was tender and delicious. Came with an in house corn tortilla, green... More

This is one of my favorite restaurants in the Santa Fe area. Why? Because the food is great. The value is amazing for what you get. The service is always nice, and if the manager is there he will always stop by your table to ask about your experience. It's about a 10 minute drive from Santa Fe, but worth... More

We went there for lunch. Pleasant surprise, easy to find, lots of parking, the restaurant is located in a cluster of shops in a small village east of Santa Fe. The service was quick and nice, the menu was extensive filled with traditional mexican dishes. It took abt 2 minutes fm the Interstate 25 to the restaurant. They have shaded... More

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
