We ate here for dinner. The food was OK but I wish that we would have consulted Tripadvisor FIRST. We both had the chicken enchilada Wednesday Special. We were just passing through Santa Fe and I wanted to impress my son in law with the New Mexican Cuisine offered in Santa Fe. I took a chance on Tomasita's after seeing... More

Popular and busy local restaurant. Old, young, family and friends. You may have to wait 10 minutes for a table. Very cozy - they seem to have put in as many tables as possible. Food is very good, authentic local fare. Friendly hard working staff.

We had a couple of margaritas before getting on the Road Runner and heading back to Albuquerque. Great place to stop as you can literally "pour yourself on the train" from here lol. Food looked good but we'd already eaten. Atmosphere was nice. Bar was dark but comfortable. Not bad service but the bartender seemed more focused on his friends... More

The restaurant was very good! The food was authentic New Mexico "Mexican" food and was well prepared and great portions, we could have shared! The margarita was perfect!

What can I say about Tomasita's? It is a "MUST DO" every time I visit Santa Fe. I adore their stuffed sopapillas with red. Some of the best New Mexican food in the state. Great service, friendly atmosphere, great food! What else can you ask for?

I was really taken by the chillis (stew) in this part of the world, just perfect for the cold weather. Red/Green just yummy. Lucky we got there early.

We expected great things from Tomasitas, a classic Mexican restaurant in Santa Fe, New Mexico, and recommended by the front desk at our hotel. Arrived there on the early side (6 pm) and were seated immediately in the porch wing (not the main room, which we barely saw). Our fellow diners at that hour were mostly large families. We ordered...

Good Mexican food, but please believe your friendly server when she asks "how hot"? Tomasita's regular old hot is hotter than most. Beware.

I have been to Tomasita's many times and want to say the food is as consistent now as it was 30 years ago. It is neither over-hyped or tourist fare. In fact, it is great Northern New Mexican food that can be enjoyed by locals and tourists alike. Don't miss it!

I was in town on business and hotel and client highly recommended. I had Monday special of blue enchilada, tamale and taco covered in red sauce. All good but not great. Served with so papilla. It's worth going back to as good meal with sides.

Thank M P

Our chiles are out of this world and you won't regret ordering either - or both! Tomasita's is a distinctly Northern New Mexican restaurant. Our recipes have been handed down for generation and serve as a reminder of the melding of cultures that together once depended on the corn, chile, beans, and fruit of the area.
