Better than average Mexican food is served here, in a pleasing atmosphere in the railyard district. Expect crowds and a wait for your table, though. It's worth it if you want a good informal family friendly place. I wouldn't call it fine cuisine, but the food is authentic and tasty.

Margaritas are great - food has always been just okay. With all the great restaurants in Santa Fe I've never understood why some people like Tomasita's so much.

All the food was really good. I had the enchiladas with the sauce "christmased" -- if you like spice, go for the red sauce...it has a lot more flavor and had a little kick. My husband got the tamale plate. Their chips and salsa are good...nice thick chips. The winner by far are the Sopapillas ... at first I dipped... More

Great way to end a day after taking the RailRunner to Albuquerque and back. I had tacos which in itself isn't a big deal, but the seasoning was perfect! Drinks are deadly so two will do! The sopapillias were fantastic and you could have extra!

Oh my holy green chile.. this was so good. The group had a variety so we all got to taste each other's plates. And I think sopapillas with honey butter and honey should be mandatory after every Mexican meal. Highly recommend.

Went on a Friday night. Sopaipillas was the best part of the meal. Never had them before and the were wonderful especially with the honey(?) butter. Margarita was good as well. Other than that, the meal was fine, but nothing to write home about. It was loud and crowded and I felt that the server was rushing us. Perhaps if... More

Love their Northern NM food! Good beer and margarita selection. Fast service, kind of a noisy, fun place. Great patio in summer.

This restaurant was recommended by a local and was listed as the top 10 Mexican restaurants in Sante Fe. I was disappointed in all the hype. I ordered the Chicken Enchilada with green chile sauce and received just the normal, nothing to rave about enchilada. I next paid extra for a Patron Margarita with fresh lime juice and truly believe... More

Our first night in Santa Fe and this stop was dinner. Food was delicious. My daughter especially loved the cheese enchilada. You are served a huge sopapilla for dessert. Yummy!! Would definitely eat here again.
