I have been going to The Shed since I was a young man. Every time we go to Santa Fe we have to stop in at The Shed. It is a local favorite and a tourist destination. The red chili sauce is spicy so if you don't like it hot you can order the sauce on the side and put... More

Awesome spot for lunch. Well with waiting 10 or so minutes. Get the burrito / taco combo w Red sauce. It's spicy but a great meal! If yon don't like waiting just go to the bar and get a cocktail like we did. Time will go by quickly!

We both tried the "Christmas, half red and half green chili" for our meals and we both agreed the green chili was much better.

Love. Love this place. Great service. Great food. My husband and I both had enchilada taco plate, you won't be disappointed. Red sauce hot, not for faint of heart.

The food at The Shed was good but EXTREMELY hot/spicy. Just be prepared for that. If you don't like spicy food- you won't enjoy the food.

Arriving without reservations around 6 on a Thursday night, we joined a dozen others drinking beer or margaritas by the little kiva fireplace inside the door and waited the better part of an hour for a table. Completely expected at this legendary spot. Our waiter later told us they might serve 1,000 on a busy night. Inside a courtyard, The... More

The Shed is a large restaurant downtown. The atmosphere is nice and lively and the staff are attentive and polite. We had a decent lunch there, mixed salad and posole.

stopped for dinner and walked right in, really spicy but wonderful as you could still taste all the flavors thru the heat. Had a Zabagliano for dessert, split this Italian custard with my wife and before the bill was paid the heat had melted away. the best of both chile options red/green and the only way to go

Yes we had to wait and it was well worth it. It was the first time i really tasted multi layer spicing as well as the best margarita in town. Well done shed crew.

This is my new favorite restaurant in Santa Fe. I had the enchiladas for lunch and they were superb. The green chile sauce was divine and I had to try the red chile, so she brought me a side of that and I had the rest of my meal "christmas". I also ordered a beer on tap from a local... More
