Good Southwestern/Mexican Food

We stopped here on a short visit to Sante Fe, each of our meals was well prepared and tasty. The three kinds of salsa with Chips were a nice treat and each were good in their own way. Our margaritas were also prepared well and the staff friendly.

The building is old and not well kept. It is also not especially clean. The guacamole was very good but we found everything else to be just okay or less. The margaritas were watery and unimpressive. There are many other better options available in the area.

It's not close to the plaza or New Mexican food, but we were very pleased with the food and service. They serve 3 different kinds of salsas with the chips. The avocado salsa was my favorite. I was also pleased to see more options than expected for non-meat eaters. The veggie burrito was really good! Every one of us enjoyed... More

This place is great. They have excellent Margarita's and draft beer and an extensive menu with many choices that are not normally found in most Mexican restaurants, for example, cabrito. The food is tasty, the service excellent, and the ambience is great. We came here early (around 5 PM) on a weekday outside the tourist season - still, when we... More

I always make sure I stop at Los Portrillos when I'm in Santa Fe, as it is great authentic Mexican food. I love the Cabrito (goat stew, for you gringos) and the salsas are great too. Affordable and tasty, highly recommend!

Los Potrillos is the best Mexican restaurant I have ever been to. I was in Santa Fe with my in laws and we were either look for a good burger or good Mexican food. They are some pick eaters and everyone loved it. From the minute we walked in the door the atmosphere was great very friendly employees. We never... More

Casual, fast, good service. The food is good and the prices are reasonable. This is not a tourist spot and is not within walking distance of the main Plaza.

Los Potrillos was recommended to us by some Santa Fe residents who are Mexican food fanatics. In sending us to this place outside the center of town, they emphasized that this was not New Mexican food, but very close to traditional Mexican food. What we found at Los Potrillos was pretty much as promised--traditional Mexican dishes. Lots of meats and... More

Stopped into Los Podrillos on a whim today for lunch. What a great find! The waiter brought tortilla chips with three different sauces, each one was really good. I had the Gorditas Zacatecas, which were 3 puffy, soft corn tortillas with 3 different fillings, served with Spanish rice, that was loose and flavorful. My boyfriend had the Enchiladas Colores plate,... More
