Based on TA reviews we chose The Pantry for dinner. The menu had a wide range of dishes - comfort food to New Mexican. My wife had the Roasted Veg, Sopapillas with Red and Green Chili. I had the Crispy Carnitas Burrito with Red and Green Chili. Both were delicious and portions generous. In spite of our filled stomachs, we... More

Family owned and stressing service. Our food was excellent but then I am sucker for chicken fried steak. This is a real comfort food restaurant. Their tres leche cake was some of the best we have had. REAL sauted veggies. I would highly recommend it.

The Pantry is a mainstay in Santa Fe and always packed, especially for breakfast. The menu is huge. It is varied and includes NM dishes, sandwiches, salads and some more typical American fare, especially for the kids or those not yet used to the really spicy NM food often found in SF. For that reason it is especially good for... More

Perfect for Breakfast, lunch, dinner or snack. One good reason to visit Santa Fe again. The Parasol right across the street also excellent. What a wonderful serendipitous experience, right next to the El Rey Inn.

Stopped in for a late lunch. The food was tasty, the service was quick, the portions were large, the prices were reasonable. Not the best food we ate in Santa Fe, but darn good, and certainly the best value.

We stopped here for lunch because family members had actually read fantastic reviews online about the restaurant, and really wanted us to go (so they could live vicariously through us). It did not go well. First, there was a very long line, with no clear way to check in, as there were no staff members available at the front of... More

I'm truly sorry that your food orders got so mixed up -- that is definitely our fault and I'm disappointed that you all had to wait for your friend to receive what she ordered. I can assure you that this is not the norm for us, so I'm sorry that your first time was so disappointingly different from our normal... More

We came for Saturday night dinner. Service was very fast and the food is outstanding! Everything was homemade. We had the open turkey sandwich, BLT and chiles rellenos; all of it was delicious! It's not far off the interstate and worth the trip into town.

We happened to be there the first time on a Wednesday evening. The fella playing the guitar and singing was outstanding...went from one song to the next...all 60's and 70's tunes. Beautiful voice and fun for us to groove to.

We enjoyed a late night dinner as we were passing through Santa Fe on our way to Texas. Wow! We picked an amazing restaurant! Our waiter, Carlos was the happiest most friendly waiter. He went above and beyond treating us like family. The food was delicious!
