Popular with locals; tourists welcomed too

Lots of locals at this restaurant, which also has a connected banquet venue for private parties. The food was good--had both New Mexican green chile and Mexican green chile, very different flavors and the first time I'd seen both on one menu. Service was prompt and attentive. I would go back if... read more

36 yrs of eating Cuban, Spainish and TexMex has given me a real feel for what is good in this genre. The owner, his daughter and other family gives Adelitas a warm hello and great service. Now, that alone would give them 4stars, but the food is delicious! The draught beer has ice in it! The place is as close... More

Great food, very good service, and excellent Mexican Mariachi Music. Convenient location near hotels and no wait. Authentic and delicious are the words that come to mind.

Stopped on way to hotel. We were on a business trip and had been gone many days. We had eaten a lot of Mexican Food. This was the best , authentic food, we experienced. The waiter was very friendly and helpful. The food was delicious and abundant. If we lived near, we would certainly go here again.

Had an out-of-state athletic team of 50+ in town for a competition and was looking for a place large enough to accommodate a full team dinner. Adelitas set up a wonderful buffet for our group and put us in a large room separate from the main restaurant. Food was excellent, service was excellent, they made our last-minute request happen in... More

Stopped in on our way back home to Colorado. It looked like a unique place from the outside. A little run down and could use some maintenance. Restaurant was clean on the inside. Good New Mexico food. We all enjoyed the enchiladas. Staff was very friendly.

We eat there every visit to Santa Fe. Good draft beer, excellent service. You will not leave there hungry. A must try is the lingua tacos or tripas tacos. Will absolutely return.

We went based on the recommendation of the desk clerk at our hotel. He said if we wanted real New Mexican food that this was the place. We loved it. Not glitzy, lots of local families dining and a great, noisy fun vibe. We will definitely return if we are in Santa Fe.
