A Mexican Restaurant with beautiful decor

We passed by a few basic looking Mexican restaurants between Santa Fe and Albuquerque but were drawn to the Adelitas restaurant. From the outside it was obvious that great care had been taken to provide the Mexican theme. As we entered, we saw the walls covered in an array of beautiful paintings... read more

The food here is MOST EXCELLENT, atmosphere, decor very inviting, stimulating to the senses. The service is consistently outstanding, no matter what time of day you dine. I have eaten here several times and every menu item myself and companion have chosen have been DELICIOUS, with good portioning and speedy service. Their mole sauce is the BEST in town !

New Mexico food, not Tex-Mex, Queso was tasty but thick, Frito pie had salad in top (not stadium style. Stuffed sopapillo was excellebt. Tacos were very good. Excellent service. I'd go back, but I wouldn't nake a special trip.

The setting is typical South West NM. The place seemed clean and the service was adequate. Chips seemed to be straight out of a plastic bag. The 3 sauces were nothing special but I have had worse.

Being a Minnesotan I had a combo plate. It was great. But the Hatch Green Chile sauce is a fabulous roasted chile sauce.I'll... More

The grilled shrimp in garlic was tasty. It came with sweet potato fries and cole slaw: they were ordinary. The menu included items not in a typical diner such as cow's lips and tongue. It is popular with the Mexican clientele.

Building is old, looks like old Dennys lol. Took me awhile to decide if I should go in or not. No regrets, surprisingly good service and pretty good food. Menu is really big, including regular American food menu, but what is most impressive - seafood nenu and prices. Not a five stars of course but again, for the price they... More

My wife & I just have the pleasure of eating at Adelitas on Sunday, 9/20. The food was excellent, the service was top-notch, and the traditional Mexican live 4-piece band music was outstanding. We highly recommend this restaurant. We would definitely eat here again the next time we are back in Santa Fe.
