The tacos were very good. I wasn't expecting peas and potatoes in the taco, but it was still tasty. I don't think this place lives up to the hype, but was still very good.

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the shredded beef taco! Easily one of the best tacos I've ever eaten. My husband had the chili releno burrito and it was also delicious. They clearly make all their corn and flour tortillas by hand. Our new first stop when we visit Santa Fe.

I had the potato and egg breakfast burrito with a side of their delicious salsa verde two mornings in a row. My new go-to quick breakfast spot in Santa Fe. Perfect bite before a trek out to hike at Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks.

The young lady behind the counter was very nice and recommended the chicken tacos, which I got 2 of....and 2 of the shredded beef tacos and 2 of the beef tacos. The tacos were ALL very good but they cost me about $18 which they were not worth, IMO. I eat tacos all over the South West and the quality... More

Best. Crunchy. Tacos. Ever. Period. End of story. We first ate at their sister restaurant El Paragua in Española. I was debating what to order-I'm usually an enchilada person. The people at the neighboring table were emphatic that I should get the shredded beef tacos. They informed that me they drove all the way down there twice a month from... More

Yeah, I'm not so sure you're ever gonna find a better taco. Ever. Anywhere. Disgustingly good. We went back twice after our first visit. Get the shredded beef taco. Actually, get three of them. Maybe get a chicken one too and then send me a compliment. You're welcome!

Their high quality fresh and varied menu gives you some great choices. We love their burritos with calabacitas, which is a blend of mixed squash, onions, corn, cheese and green chiles. Another favorite of ours is their pork carne adovada. Its fantastic...rich, fork tender and deeply flavorful. Also think tacos, extraordinary tacos, fresh fried shells with delicious shredded beef. Tamales... More

Went here with my wife and our 7 month old. We were in a good and smiley mood, excited to be in Santa Fe, and were met with a very rude worker. No greeting, she just mumbled something and seemed to be in a hurry even though no one was behind us. We asked if we could sit in the... More

I love, love, love their shredded beef tacos with guacamole, they are excellent. I've also had their Carne Adovada and it's also great. A favorite place to take out in Santa Fe.
