We have eaten here on other occasions and found it good. This visit was ok but the prices have gone up, the quality has slipped a little, and the salsa was disappointing. The service was really good, they do have a lot of American and Mexican options,the place was clean, and we were served quickly.

This place is slightly hidden from the main part of Santa Fe. You could find it leaving or coming into town. It is the best place with reasonable prices to eat. It was recommenced and it was on spot. Also had hatch products for purchase at reasonable prices on the check out area. Service was good, food was good.

Our keycard at the motel we were staying at in Santa Rosa had this restaurant advertised on the front. There were slim and nil restaurants still open in this very run down tourist town. The restaurant was larger than I had thought and well maintained with good food. It is a family run restaurant will all home made food. The... More

We found this place by driving up and down Rt 66 in Santa Rosa, NM. The mostly Mexican menu had standard fare so I chose cheese enchiladas with beans and rice. The tortillas were somewhat dry despite the melted cheese. The rice tasted several days old and was mushy. My husband had the carne avodobado (sp?) and said that pork... More

Place is clean with decent service but the food is mediocre at best. I had carne advobado which was a pork, cheese dish. I was warned it was the hottest dish in the place. It was a bit spicy but hardly 5-alarm ( more like 2). Beans were Ok as were tortillas. My wife had cheese enchildas that were basically... More

My wife and I ate there On Sunday night. My wife had the red chili with pinto beans and tortillas. I had the green chili with pinto beans and tortillas. Both were delicious we have eaten there before on previous trips to New Mexico, always good food and great service.

We stopped in about a half hour before closing time. They were very nice about our late visit. The food was great and we were not rushed at all.

We were disappointed in the food being that they boast right on the menu that their chilis come straight from Hatch Valley, which we know are the best. We ordered a beer and a margarita (made with wine, not tequila) and a dinner salad which was not too cold but with a nice variety of veggies and crotons. The chicken... More

We ate here on long trip. We ate from Senior Menu. Service was great but food was just okay. Resturant could have been a little cleaner but not awful.
