“Yummy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

We had dinner here during a recent visit to Santa Fe. Very good food - Mexican flavor of course, but we loved that.

“Good chile rellenos.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

Our dinner was good. Nothing over the top for the hype. It was our first night in Santa Fe so we were expecting fabulous Mexican food. Since we are from Texas, it was not anything special. There is a female singing group that entertained. They were good.

“If u like watered down green chile...”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013 via mobile

We went on a friday night, the wait was abt 30 minutes. Kids got chicken fingers, we got a green chicken enchilada plate with posole instead of beans, and a red enchilada with ground beef. The chicken strips were ok. The side of ranch had way too much dill. The red enchiladas were just ok, and the green were so gross. They were flavor less, the green chile was just green chile- the sauce looked and tasted like water. No flavor. Nothing. The posole was just as bad. As a local - I will not be going to or recommending this restaurant.

“Tomasita's - Best New Mexican in SF”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

I've eaten at Tomasitas many times over the past 30 years I've been coming to Santa Fe. Their food is delicious and very consistent. Their green and red are both top notch. May I recommend their frozen margaritas!

“Serves real Mexican food that filled our "Mexican palet!"”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013 via mobile

Yes this place is busy but there us a reason they actually serve tasty Mexican food not Spanish /New Mexican dishes.
Chile rellanos tasty. Tacos not exciting.
Bar pricey and locales get special attention.
Parking lot always full.
Hours 11-10 daily.
