This review is long overdue as we went to Santa Fe in the middle of June 2014. First, I'm not a person who ever raves about breakfast - eggs generally can only get so good. We stayed at the Inn at Laredo and decided to walk up to Jalapeno's for breakfast. What a wonderful surprise. It was a beautiful morning... More

We loved this restaurant. We went for Saturday brunch and each had a 1/2 order, which was plenty. My blue corn enchiladas with green sauce were my best meal of the trip. And a sopapilla with the meal--always a plus for me. I also enjoyed the shady outdoor patio area.

I am torn because I want to give this place both an excellent rating AND a terrible one. My wife and I came here for lunch. She had the Baja shrimp salad which was EXTRAORDINARY, and I had the Carne asada quesadilla which was extraordinarily BAD. The terrace was nice, reminiscent of West coast Mexico and the service was good.... More

After I ate a big burrito at Jalapeno's, I was stuffed. It had eggs, carne asada, potatoes and cheese and other things inside it, and an egg on top of it. Oh man oh man it was good! If I lived at Santa Fe, I'd get addicted to their great burritos.

Honestly....A great location. A spectacular menu!!!!! The worst staff in Santa Fe. The owners of this place really need to get it together. Who hires these people? If you're interested in a good laugh, go and order a drink and watch the catastrophe!!! The Blond girl that answers the phone and tells people that there is no wait or that... More

We ate here for an early dinner while in Santa Fe. The food was good, not blown away, but good. We were one of very few people in the restaurant and the service was still pretty slow. The food is pretty expensive for a standard Mexican dinner.

We were walking around Santa Fe checking it out. Saw this nice looking place close to the capital and capital grounds. When it was cold drink and chip time we stopped it. Service was great, salsa (3 types) was better and the chips were fresh and warm. I call this a can't miss place. (drinks were cold and tasty too)

It was the best meal we had in Santa Fe. We ate lunch on the patio. The whole wheat taco salad was fabulous.

Best kept secret in Santa Fe! The prices were fair, the tacos amazing. The staff was friendly. The outside deck was nice. You have to try the watermelon margarita, it wasn't overly sweet, and you could actually taste the tequila. I ate their twice during my visit, and would have eaten their more, but I didn't find it until the... More
