My husband & I stopped here for an early New Mexican dinner while spending a few days in Santa Fe. Excellent! No other word to describe it. The entire wait staff was friendly & helpful with options for us to choose for our meals. The slo-cooked brisket was exceptional as was the nightly special of Steak Navajo served open on... More

We stopped at the Pantry this morning and I tried their Corned Beef and Eggs WOW I thought I was at Katz's. In New York. Simply incredible. On top of this we finished it off with a cinnamon roll. Heaven on a plate.. this place is always busy but worth the 10 _15 minute wait

We read some reviews about this place. It’s perhaps better known as the place for breakfast where customers wait in line to get a seat. We were worried about dinner lines so we ate early and there was no crowd – just great food. They had evening entertainment – a guitar player but we were too early for that also.... More

My husband and I dined at the Pantry for breakfast recently on our visit to Santa Fe. I had the fruit/yogurt/granola bowl, which was quite tasty- the granola was crunchy & tasted like home-made. Hubby had French toast and bacon, which he enjoyed. Fast, friendly service and good food. *thumbs up*

We ate here on two of our mornings in Santa Fe, and would have stopped by again if we'd had the time. Red and green sauces are outstanding. Carne adovada is the best I've had in Santa Fe. Service is friendly, prompt, and attentive. Coffee is good. This place is filled with locals, and it's no surprise.

Driving through Santa Fe we stopped at the Pantry for lunch after seeing the reviews on Tripadvisor. What a great find. Simple restaurant just south of downtown Santa Fe. Great New Mexico food and friendly service. None of the stuffiness that you sometimes get in Santa Fe.

We stayed at the El Ray Inn next door to this little jem of a restaurant. My wife and I were tired of driving into the downtown area to eat and thought we would try this place. What a pleasant surprise. The restaurant itself is nothing special. The food and the staff however make up for any shortcomings the decor... More

The best fish tacos outside of Mexico? That means a lot! I'm so happy you enjoyed them and that you were so impressed with our service and our prices. I'm not sure how often you're at the El Ray or in Santa Fe, but we'd love to welcome you back the next time you're here. Best, Michael Singley, Owner More

I came with friends for dinner and we had a thoroughly enjoyable meal - both in terms of food and service. The restaurant is much bigger than you might think consisting of 2 separate areas and a 'diner bar'. We ordered a range of food - all of which was very tasty and home made and the portions are very... More

We needed to get on the road early on Sunday so were wanting to be first in line! We were waiting outside the front door about 15 minutes before they opened!
