We arrived late in Santa Fe...we were tired and hungry. The first restaurant that we saw was closing but recommended Del Charro and specifically the Green Chile Chicken Chowder....say that fast 3 times!... Let me just say that it is delicious...rich, warm, and comforting. It packs a little heat, but it's not painful....just right!! The best thing for weary, late... More

This place was within five minute walk from our hotel, and on a cold November night (~30F)very convenient and not expensive. It gets very busy on Friday and Saturday night. Portions are large, even appetizers: I made a mistake ordering wings marinated in chipotle sauce : they very too "hot" to my taste, and portion was too big- we already... More

we were traveling with a group of 10. Staff never minded if we moved tables together, some drank or ate while others did not. Food and drinks were great and service was terrific.

We ate at Del Charro and used our voucher from the Inn of the Governors. Everything we ordered was delicious and prepared perfect. Staff was very attentive and professional. We would defiantly eat here again!

We ate here a couple of times during our stayed and drank in the bar every night. The world series was on and so a few beers went down very well. The local beer is a good pint. The servers could be a little more happy as they came across a bit miserable at times. The food is great and... More

The best enchiladas I had ever had. Prices are very reasonable for Santa Fe. The green chili corn chowder is a must.

This restaurant is attached to the "Inn of Governors" where we were staying. They offered a reduction off the evening meal for hotel guests and the breakfast on the following morning was also served in the restaurant. The reduction made it worthwhile to eat there, but for that there are better places to eat in Santa Fe. The breakfast was... More

eh.. the only thing "wow" about the place is the price. there are far better "best in santa fe" claims that are actually better - margaritas and burgers. the service was slow, but maybe my server was new-ish. he seemed like he might have been trying to remember what he learned or he was just totally uninterested in our table?...

The short version ~ this place brags about their burgers, but the day I went, the kitchen couldn't cook one to temperature. Mine was raw in the middle and the kitchen refused to fix it. Manager stepped in, but by the time I got it, my friend had already finished her entire meal. BTW, the burger was just ok. Many... More
