Santa Fe is our go-to date-night restaurant in Newark DE. My favorite plate is the Churrasco with ride, black beans and my wife always get the carnitas. And we fight over a single side of ripe plantains. Best of all, the bartender makes a mean,...More

No complaints about the place. Our service was great. Our server never let our water get low, or our chip bowl get empty. But our food was just OK. The tacos were pretty plain. The enchiladas were good, but not the best. If you are...More
