Our first Mexican restaurant visit in Santa Fe for New Mexican, Mexican food. So disappointing unless you like a can of green chilies poured over canned chicken on a four tortilla. The setting is good in Santa fe's railyard but the accolades end there. Industrial mixed margaritas and cheap food. Don't bother.

We had their special recipe Golden Margarita (on the rocks with salt) and it was fantastic! We also enjoyed their Chips and Nacho Dip. Do wish their bar was bigger but that's okay. Food and drinks make up for it.

I was very disappointed with this "included" dinner on our tour. The food was presented in a sloppy way. I had the combination plate and it tasted as bad as it looked! Grand Circle made a poor choice of restaurants in an area known for excellent Mexican good. Skip this one!

This is my husband's favorite! He "New Mexican" born and loves this place after skiing in the winter and any other time of the year. Ask for the red or green / "Christmas " (which means both ) sauce on the side if you are not sure. The sauce caters to locals..It can be hot! Food is delivered fast and... More

After traveling across the country for ten hours it was time to find a comfortable place with friendly people and hot, delicious food. We found that here. We asked our server what they are known for and she pointed us to the daily special. A chicken enchilada, chile relleno and a beef taco, with refried beans and rice. Hot, fresh... More

We purchased our Margarita Trail passport from the Tourism office. We had amazing margarita's there! We didn't order food, just drinks. The food that we saw looked delicious. We'll have to go for lunch or dinner next time!

Had a very fast trip to Abq and had to choose wisely for my NM fix. After a disappointing experience at Sadie's last trip I worried about taking my friend's recommendation of Tomasita's in Santa Fe but my, oh my, this place is perfection. Service was fast and friendly and the food was excellent. Real red chile that's nothing but... More

Tomasita's makes perfect sopapillas! Like eating a cloud. Definitely the best place we ate at in Sante Fe. We went in the early afternoon and had friendly, fast service.

I enjoyed eating at this restaurant tremendously. We waited for a table for approx 30 mins, this place was packed. The atmosphere was very welcoming. We waited at the bar where I had a frozen margarita and my husband had a Santa Fe bold ale, both were delicious. After we were seated I ordered tacos and my husband ordered the... More

This was our second stay in Santa Fe and we wanted to return to Tomasita's for their New Mexico Mex food that was so delicious last trip. We did the right thing. The restaurant was packed the Thur night before Labor Day and we were looking at a 30 minute wait, but we figured "what the heck". We came a... More

Description
Tomasita's restaurant is a Santa Fe tradition serving classic Northern New Mexican cuisine. Stop by today for an unforgettable meal! Locally owned and operated in Santa Fe, NM, we take great pride in our high quality food, friendly and fast service, and of course our famous margaritas! Locals have consistently voted us as the premier restaurant for Best Red Chile, Best Green Chile, Best Margaritas, and Best New Mexican Restaurant! 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. Since 1974, the Maryol/Gundrey family has maintained a commitment to the recipes and ingredients of New Mexico. Join us for lunch, dinner, or happy hour and try our traditional recipes with amazing flavor. Don't forget to top off your meal with a homemade dessert - sopapillas anyone
