We always go to TIA Sophia's. It's a true, Santa Fe and New Mexico experience. The food is simple, the chile is delicious, the service is old style (if by old style you understand fast and friendly). It's like being at your mom's, if your mom cooked as well as they do here. If you want some traditional food, there's... More

I like to go to Tia Sophias for lunch as it is right down town and just a few hundred yards from The Plaza. The staff is always nice, the food is very filling and tasty, and it's a great place to go with some friends. There is usually a short wait to get in at lunch-time but that's normal... More

Sorry to say this place made me sick. We arrived 35 minutes prior to closing at 2pm and were almost turned away at the door. They rushed us to order from a very limited menu. And they didn't even ask if we wanted coffee or anything to drink. When they brought the food about 5 minutes later I actually had... More

This small place is a local gem. The breakfasts are delicious, traditional New Mexican food. There's frequently a waiting list, but it moves pretty quickly. he food is definitely worth the wait.

The chorizo burrito here is amazing!!! This is a stop we planned our visit around. A close second is the chili bowl. The thing that makes these dishes so good is the red chili. My wife and I agree that this place has our favorite red chili. If you like red chili you need to stop here and give it... More

Five people orders five different dishes and no complaints. The place was full of locals you can't be a bad restaurant and have a large amount of repeat business. I would eat breakfast here again.

You can't beat breakfast at Tia Sophia's. Try anything - we've sampled most of the menu! - and you'll enjoy it. Fast friendly service, delicious food.

I was excited to eat here after reading the reviews and I must say the food itself was good. My vegetarian burrito in green chile was filling and tasty but the service was some of the worst. We arrived at 1:30 and asked the waitress if it was too late for lunch- she didn't reply but rather just lead us... More

I've had lunch here before and been very happy, tried breakfast and loved it. The breakfast burrito with bacon, smothered in green chile was amazing. Service was top notch, as always, and food reasonably priced.
