Reansonably priced place to eat in the Plaza area.

Consistently good food located on the Plaza. Another Blue Corn Café is on Cerrillos Road. Don't miss the prickly pear iced tea. By sharing your experiences, you're helping travelers make better choices and plan their dream trips. Thank you!

The worst chilli relleno I have ever had, that basics such as sour cream will cost you extra. The queso dip was mediocre.

Quick, delicious, not super expensive. Delicious chicken enchiladas. We'll worth it. Sat on porch and inside. Cool and spacious.

Had to ask for silverware twice, and then a third time after food arrived. Nearly through my lunch on Aug. 22nd I came upon Saran-Wrap inside my Chimichanga. While some effort was taken to correct this, I don't think the wait person or the establishment has a policy on how to handle such situations. While I did not ask to... More

Good location, the upper exterior is nice. Drinks were ok. Food was so so. Service was spotty. Probably won't go again.

Our favorite lunch or dinner restaurant after sightseeing and shopping. The green chili tamales are my favorite! Margaritas are excellent, and it has a nice bar.

We'd heard good things about this restaurant & were eager to try it, but were let down. The Navajo fry bread, base for the Navajo taco, was burned, & the beef, beans, etc. on top mediocre. Hubby had a combo plate with enchilada, taco, & chile relleno, which he characterized as 'nothing special'. Our server disappeared after a brief check... More

Great margaritas and food. We had a wonderful waiter and really enjoyed our meal. It is a quick walk from all of the hotels and near the square.

We had lunch n Sunday afternoon during Indian Market. The service was outstanding. Our waitress was the best server we've had in Santa Fe. My wife had the stuffed sopapilla with green salsa. She loved it. The green salsa was spicy but not overpowering. My green salsa stew was excellent. Yummy, yummy. I had the IPA to drink and it... More

Great food, reasonable prices. A little spicy for me, but everything is spicy around town. The crab dip is amazing!
