My wife and I have been to Santa Fe six times over the last 20 years. There are so many Tex-Mex restaurants to choose from, but one of our favorite stops is Tomasita's. We ate there twice during our visit last week and not much has changed. The tortilla soup with chicken was great. The sopapillas are always hot and... More

Great specialty drinks! This restaurant was recommended by the staff at the El Dorado on our first night in Santa Fe. They were so friendly and even accommodated my vegan preferences!

We love Tomasita's. We actually made a special detour through Santa Fe on our way home just to eat at Tomasita's. We arrived right at 6 pm and had a 50 minute wait, but it was worth every minute!

As a local, I have dined here numerous times. The quality of the food is very good, and the price/value is excellent. The roast beef burrito is excellent, as are the fixed daily specials. Their green chile is very flavorful. However, the margaritas are weak and over-priced. The other major problems I have with this restaurant is that they do... More

I almost turned around and left when I walked into Tomasita's restaurant in Santa Fe, New Mexico. The front desk clerk at my motel recommended it, but I did not expect to see two entire waiting rooms filled with patrons at 7:30 in the evening. My excellent dinner was well worth the wait, however. The Mexican food here is outstanding,... More

First time visiting town and Tomasita's was recommended. Even though it was busy, we were seated after only a short wait. Drinks were quick to arrive and we tried a variety of the cocktails - all were good. The Frogg was particularly good. We then proceeded to order. One person ordered and requested no dairy (cheese, sour cream). I ordered... More

We noticed there was a line to get in when they opened so decided to give them a try. The food was good but nothing really stood out as special. The service was good so if you are in the area and need to get something give it a try.

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.

Thank Glenn H
