Went to Santa Fe for the afternoon. We had never tried the place before. The tortilla chips seen homemade and the salsa was excellent. Spicy and flavorful I had the combination plate which was excellent. The tacos were awesome. My companion had the carne adovada which was also quite tasty. I highly recommend the place. The margarita's were very good.

....suggested by a local who said food and chili sauce were wonderful. I didn't feel the love. Food was mediocre. Green chili sauce was good, but hey, serve something as good underneath it. Crazy busy for Saturday lunch. Sat in a small warm room with little AC. Glad we didn't have to wait because that would have really left me... More

This restaurant was highly recommended by the driver of the Santa Fe Historic District Shuttle- I ordered and very much enjoyed the Swirl frozen margarita and vegetable chalupas and sopapillas. Atmosphere is okay- tables are arranged close together. Service was very good and food and drinks even better.

Thomasita's is one of the best Southwest or Mexican restaurants in Santa Fe. The food was delivered quickly. It was spicy like we like it. The sopapillas with honey and cinnamon butter were outstanding. We had a wonderful dinner. I ordered the "lite" plate with a chicken enchilada and left a lot on the plate because I was stuffed! A...

Family friendly, affordable, excellent quick service. Super tequila choices. Tamales, tortilla soup, enchiladas. were all very favorable. Good amount of greens on all the plates. Red and green sauces are spicy and have a depth of flavor. The traditional Sopapias were puffy and sweet and served with honey. A tasty light ending to our meal. Busy restaurant, not sure if...

Excellent restaurant! Great food! Prices middle line. Excellent Service. Be prepared to wait (we had about a 45 minute wait, but this was on a Friday night!)

I do not often eat mexican food and when I do it's normally from the chains in London so it was great to taste some authentic Mexican food! It was all delicious! Good service too (there is a bit of a wait for a table but it is worth it) and a fun, lively atmosphere.

Very close to the rail runner station. They have great Mexican food. I wasn't so hungry, so ordered light Mexican plate. But guess what I got. It was just as same size as a regular size. It was satisfying.

Tomasita's was a winning recommendation from a friend. My flautas were outstanding and the sopasillas with honey butter melted in my mouth.
