Love the food here. Favorite appetizer is the Mexican guacamole. Favorite drink is the blackberry margarita - delicious and not too sweet. Camarones Rancheros - bacon wrapped shrimp - they've mastered cooking this perfectly. Plenty of shrimp in the Shrimp Enchiladas. If you like spicy, try Mariscos a la Diabla - Shrimp and Mushrooms.

Great little place with carved seat backs and benches, and Spanish TV on silent behind the Mexican music inside as well as the live music on the patio on Saturday evening. Good spicy salsa with warm chips, as much as you want. We were searching for a replacement for our favorite Mexican restaurant that changed a few years ago and... More

We really like Mexican food and this is some of the best in the area. Menu selection, food quality and value are enhanced by the colorful "South Of The Border" interior. A large deck is available in good weather. Be sure to sample the many typical Mexican meal selections and adult or non-alcoholic beverages if you are in the area.... More

Friendly staff, very authentic Mexican food in a fun environment with soccer always on the TV's. Kind of an odd location, but totally worth a visit

I hesitate to write this review because I don't want to give my favorite place away. The prices are great, the food is Excellent, the 42oz margarita is what this momma needs on some days, and the staff is so nice to our family and crazy toddler trying to eat their crayons. Jessenia (spelling may be wrong) is my favorite... More

I went for late lunch (2:30pm) and was prompted greeted walking through the door. I was immediately seated and given ample time to choose my courses. My margarita was great. The mix they use seems to have a hint of pepper spice to it (which I like). I ordered Huevos Rancheros with whole beans for my meal. I really enjoyed... More

This place used to be a teriyaki place for the longest time. Then it became a herfys and now santa fe. I frequent Mexican restaurant often, Santa fe in my opinion is an average restaurant with great service. I was not impressed by the food there based on the other places I have been. I also felt it was a... More

I have had the pleasure of eating here on several occasions and have consistently found it to be delicious! Clean environment, friendly waitstaff and great food and drinks. If I had to find one thing remotely negative, I would have to recommend the Seafood/Crab enchiladas only when crab is in season. I have tried it twice. In season was amazing... More

I'm guessing the building this Grill occupies has been many things over the years, it has been painted and cleaned by the current owner but shows signs of wear. The front deck is noisy from street traffic but I chose open air to a crowded feeling inside. It looks like they tried to place too many tables in the dining... More
