A regular eat in Santa Fe

We've visited here twice before and remembered it so we thought to come back. We definitely will remember here the next time we come back. The drinks are fresh. The queso was nice with a slight kick to it. The main course was great so definitely we will come back.

Stopped in on our last night in Santa Fe and we weren't disappointed. Unlike Shelly in another review my my daily special Chicken Enchiladas Crema were delicious as were the other items our party of five enjoyed. The Amber Ale was also outstanding. I highly recommend stopping in when you are in Santa Fe.

Went because it was close to our hotel and was a brewery. Wasn't disappointed. Nice cozy spot on a high-top table in the bar area. Good beer selection and the food was tasty.

We had the daily special (chicken enchiladas crema), chips and salsa, and margaritas. The enchiladas were just ok. Added salsa to them as the flour tortillas need sauce to swallow. Margaritas were expensive and weak. The waitress spilled out our salsa on the table and brought us napkins to clean it up. Had to ask for water to be refilled.... More

the servers were so helpful and friendly,. the food was average although we found the Mexican Meat Loaf to be very good. We were inexperienced with ordering Mexican food and our waitress was very helpful. A very convenient location.

We stopped in for drinks recently and were impressed with their margarita options. We choose the prickly pear and the La Picosa, which was the big hit. Made with cinnamon tequila it was one of the most unique and tasty marks I've had, and I've had many! We didn't order food except for the chips and dips, which were ok,... More

The Blue Corn Cafe is upstairs and a little tricky to find for a tourist :). That's one of the reasons we totally enjoyed our experience. There were many "regulars" there which made for a very friendly atmosphere ! The view of old Santa Fe was great from the second floor! But the food was better than everything !! Our... More

Four of us dined at the Blue Corn Cafe. We were seated quickly and our drinks were delivered quickly as well. The order was taken and even though the establishment was very busy our food was brought out in a very reasonable time. It all tasted very good and we were all pleased.

This is an understated but very high quality place to eat. We had lunch and were very pleased by all dishes that we ordered: huevos rancheros, burrito de carne de res, soup/salad combo. The ingredients were fresh and tasty. Great value.

Have been here several times and always come back! Food and service is really good and menu allows for variety of tastes. Seems to be a fovorite as it is always busy; but so far we have never had to wait for a table.
