Great Mexican Restaurant

If you want great Mexican Food this is the place to go to, expect it to be crowded at lunch time. This is the place the locales eat at and was recommended by a number of local merchants. Price is reasonable. Food was great. Service was excellent. Wish it was located where I live.

We always eat breakfast here every time we 're in town and it never fails to please us! Service is always great, atmosphere warm and homey, but the best is the food.. The pancakes are wonderful and we always have the burrito Christmas style! Perfection!!!!!! Oh and their coffee is good!

Our meals were tasty and nicely presented, and the staff were pleasant and deferential. However, it was not exceptional and the setting was dated, dark and not very inviting.

I ordered a burrito with red chile and the chile was so thick that it was lumpy and it tasted not very good. Won't be back.

Open at 8 a.m. on Sunday, otherwise 7 a.m. - get there early and get ready for some really tasty, authentic New Mexican cuisine. Not just the ordinary, but good flavor profiles.

My bride and I ate here twice while staying in town. The first day for lunch, my bride had the chili relleno Christmas style, and I had a burrito Christmas style as well. We quickly decided that the red sauce was the star: smoky, slightly bitter, with a mild but slow building burn. The red sauce was so good that... More

Fast, always very delicious lunch in downtown Santa Fe. Take a number when they are super busy - waiting is minimal and service is fast. Their Posole is excellent, and I always plan on expanding and experimenting with different dishes, but somehow always end up with my usual - cheese and onion enchiladas with a side of Posole, ranch-style pinto...

Had lunch at Tia Sophia's today. There is usually a line for lunch but it goes very fast. My wife and I both had the stuffed soppapilla- she had chicken, I had ground beef, both with green sauce. Both were very good, prices are a little below average for being near the Plaza. Service was FAST for NM. Great spot... More
