“Great little local restaurant!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2011

We have been going to Santa Fe for 15 years now!! The staff is always nice and our food is always served quickly with good portions. It is a small restaurant tucked in the main street of Tarrytown and is great for good Tex-Mex food. Over the past year, they have changed their menu to include a greater variety of sides with their entrees. Even when they took my favorite entree off the regular menu, they will make it when requested. Their salsa is great and they even post a home recipe version of it on their web site that we use all the time with lots of rave reviews from family and friends!

If you like the food here, we would recommend joining the Cactus Club (it's free). If you present your card when you come in, you will gain points for coupons towards meals. Also, you receive a free entree in your birthday month.

Nice, local restaurant that leaves us feeling full and our taste buds happy - even the kids!!

“Great Salsa”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2010

Very good family owned restaurant on Main Street in Tarrytown. The food is always fresh and the service is friendly and prompt. The decor is slightly dated but don't let that deter you. You will have a good meal here.

“Good staff good menu”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2010

I visited Tarrytown several times on business but never tried Santa Fe before I moved there last month. Probably becuase I didn't even know it was there and was not a big fan of mexican food. Santa Fe was the first restaurant I tried as a resident of TTown and it was a pleasant experience. The menu has a lot of things to choose from including typical mexican things like tacos and burritos as well as more exotic and adventurous dishes that I have yet to try but plan to. fajitas were very tasty and filling. The staff was happy and helpful and the food was very good. I will be back. It's a bit pricey but the portions are large and it won't kill your wallet.

“big dissapoitment”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2009

We walked into Santa Fe expecting good Mexican food but got mediocre Mexican at best. Service was slow and did not pay attention to our empty wine/water/soda glasses. I will not go back.
