We got here when it opened for dinner, and it was already crowded. This is the sister restaurant to The Shed. Carne adovada was excellent. Sopapillas were terrific. Margaritas were good. Highly recommended.

I loved this place for the food. Although the furnishings are a little rustic, the food makes you forget your surroundings. The Relleno was outstanding as were the chilies, both red and green. This is the place to get your New Mexican food fix.

So glad I called to make a reservation. A local had recommended this restaurant, and we were very happy with the food, service and ambience. But there was a long line in front for a table. We had a reservation, thankfully so we only waited a few minutes.

Stopped in for dinner and thoroughly enjoyed our meal in this busy, crowded restaurant. Waited in the bar and enjoyed a great margarita. Dinner was good and service was attentive. I would recommend and would come back again.

Got off the plane and the rental car agent sent us to La Choza. Margaritas were fabulous as the lime was fresh and tasty. All of the New Mexican food was the best I've had anywhere. Service was most pleasant and the value was acceptable. Great place to go outside of the Santa Fe Plaza area.

Wow. When we got into town, we asked the front desk clerk at our motel what restaurant he would suggest for "real northern New Mexican" Mexican food, and he told us about La Choza. It was just a few blocks away from the motel, so we decided to try it. It is not on the Plaza - it is by... More

We are relatively new to SantaFe so still finding our way. We had a coupon for La Choza so decided to try it. Well, it's the best NM style cooking we've found yet. It will be the place we take guests to. Because it's away from the plaza, tourists might miss it, but I'd recommend they get directions. Perfect renditions... More

This was close to our hotel and it came with recommendations. These recommendations were earned. Had the enchilada plate and a very good margarita. The salads looked good with the bleu cheese. Nice atmosphere and very easy for us to go to. The staff was very attentive. Needed water for the Chile and we kept getting it. Ate outside and... More

Yum, yum, yum! What a gem of a place. Their combo plate was excellent and their margaritas made the meal perfect. Great service, too! Not at the plaza, so nice and peaceful.

We were staying downtown but decided to venture out to La Choza. Every Staff member we met could not have been friendlier! We enjoyed margaritas that were so much better than the ones we had in a nice bar downtown. The green chile clam chowder and tacos were very good. Outdoor patio was very attractive. Highly recommend !!
