Pretty good food

The rice and refried beans disappointed, but tamale enchiladas and taco made up for it. Staff did a nice job of being helpful without interference with the conversation.

Everyone was very friendly and helpful. The food was excellent. Nice atmosphere inside and there is a patio as well. Since it is in the Railyard, we visited the farmers' market before having lunch here. It had been recommended to us to eat here and it was an excellent recommendation.

This popular spot was disappointing. I had the evening's special, blue corn chicken enchilada, which was soggy and tasteless accompanied by equally unremarkable rice and beans. The house margarita was cloyingly sweet. The highlight of the meal was the sopapilla with honey butter. Service was very good.

Great food! Quick seating and our absolute favorite place to eat when visiting Santa Fe. It's not in the square but worth the drive! A must for us!

The food is pretty darn good also. Love the area around it too. Good see a movie at Violet Crown and then head over to Tomasitas for dinner. Watch the trains go by while you wait for your table...and drink a margarita. Also don't miss the fudge brownie. Hell, you should go for a margarita and a fudge brownie, but... More

Tomasita's is in the Railyard district of Santa Fe. It has ample parking, which is something extremely rare in that city. We were seated quickly. The restaurant was nearly full, yet it was spacious. The interior has a nice Southwest decor. The wait staff was friendly and attentive. The food came out quickly. We ordered the Blue Corn Chicken Enchilada... More

Ordered the tamale plate with rice and beans and the green chile chicken soup to go and it was amazing! I'm a huge fan of tamales and sometimes the masa is dry or too wet, or flavorless or there's just too much, not here. The meat to masa ratio was perfect and the flavor of the red sauce was beautiful.... More
