Perfect TripAdvisor Recommendation

I first pulled up TripAdvisor to get people's opinion on The Pantry Restaurant. After reading great reviews we decided to try it and we loved it. One order of Meatloaf, one Brisket Tacos and one Burrito. Not one plate was left with food in it. I also understand their breakfast is just as good.

well, this was a disappointment... After reading all the great reviews about this place, my husband and I decided to stop there for dinner. I asked the waiter to not put beans in my meal as I can't eat them and my dinner arrived with beans. They immediately replaced it which was good. The food was very plain, no mexican... More

Great to have New Mexico Mexican food. Both dishes were outstanding. Really fast service and turn around. There is a waiting line but it moves very fast. We will be going back for breakfast.

To say that this is not a fancy restaurant is a huge understatement. We ate here with relatives, who had eaten here before. We got a table in the back room, and I was reminded of a place where I ate many inexpensive meals when I was in college in the early '60s. My wife got a spinach salad, which... More

The food was excellent and the waiter was helpful with suggestions on what to order. For the price and quality of my meal it was outstanding! I will return for more great food on my next... More

We had breakfast here thismorning. We both got the stuffed french toast, as recommended on tripadvisor by other reviewers. It didn't disappoint. Really great service too. Is a must stop for breakfast atleast.

The word of the day is integrated Lard. That is why this kitchen does so well. Everything they do is so well integrated from the basic spices to the complex sauces. You cannot go wrong. This basjc well thought out menu is a charm. Has been serving Santa Fe since 1948.

I like to consider myself an expert on French Toast. I eat it every chance I get. The Stuff French Toast with Berries was THE BEST I have ever had. The atmosphere is casual.
