We stopped in after the long drive from Flagstaff. Great ambiance and nice to some at some places still taking Covid precautions. The chips/salsa/guacamole were outstanding. I got the special enchiladas and mole sauce and two excellent margaritas. Excellent service, kind staff.

My friend and I stopped for lunch here on a visit to Santa Fe. The selection of tacos was interesting and served beautifully. I had the Al Pastoro and one and the beef one. We shared the flan dessert which was absolutely a perfect end...to a great lunch. We heartily recommend you stop hereMore

We were so happy to find this restaurant in Santa Fe. The place is authentic, and the staff is very friendly, the food is just DELICIUOS. Great Margaritas freshly made. The food is well prepared, and the servings are just perfect. We enjoyed everything that...we had that afternoon, and my favorite was the Chile rellenos. If this restaurant was located closer to the Plaza, I'm sure we were not going to be able to secure a table. Keep up the good work!!!More

The recommendation of the mole enchiladas by one of the staff was spot on! The mole sauce was delicious, the chicken was tender, and the tortillas were prepared perfectly. The staff was also very friendly and personable.

We are visiting from Austin Texas where we have many fabulous taco eateries. El Callejon ranks up there with the best of them. The atmosphere is cozy and the location close to all of the plaza sights that you want to see. Try the three...taco plate where you can mix and match. The callabacitas vegetarian choice is very satisfying if you are skipping meat. The shrimp and fish ceviche is delightful & perfectly seasoned. The chips and salsa should not be ignored. lightly seasoned, crunchy not greasy and the salsa has just the right amount of heat. Service excellent, owners on premise.More

It's a bar setting, but the food and service are very good. I had 3 tacos and they were the best I had in Santa Fe! You can mix and match the different types of tacos.

Both my wife and I thought the food was outstanding. The service, portion size and pricing left nothing to be desired. The shrimp diavlo was amazing! We ate there our first evening and made the huge mistake of not going back there our second and...last evening in Santa Fe.More

Nice venue, good food—especially the tacos. We were there on. Thursday night and it wasn’t crowded at all. We sat at a long table near the bar.

Although I find it annoying to have to look at a menu on my phone, I think the food here is great and worth that hassle. Each dish is original and has great flavors.
