The food was good here but nothing special. The portions were very large. The service was fine. It's very loud and feels very touristy. No reservations and there is usually a wait. I'm not a fan of waiting unless the food is amazing, and this wasn't. We'll skip it next time.

We did not have a full meal here. The Frogg Marg was good, just stir it well. Salsa was too hot even for my hubby who lives for hot. Sopapias were yummy and the staff is really nice. Of you have an electric car, you can park in the back.

When in Santa Fe, we always try for at least one dinner at Tomasita. This trip I selected the Wednesday special of blue corn tortilla. Everything was good as ever including the stuffed grape leaves appetizers. Can't wait to return next Spring when we visit the area.

This is a popular, noisy, bustling place with good, reasonably priced eats. If you arrive anywhere near a meal time, expect to wait. The chiles rellenos were really good, but the green sauce is a little bit too mild. My husband had the beef burrito, another sound choice. Service was a little slow, the place was still packed at 2... More

We wanted a traditional New Mexico lunch after a hike and this hit the spot. We started out with chips and salsa. The salsa was very hot, which we liked. I had the roasted vegetable enchilada off the light menu and my husband ordered the chicken enchilada with green sauce. The enchiladas, beans and rice were delicious but the green... More

Tomasitas was recommended to us as a great place to find authentic New Mexican food in Santa Fe. We went for lunch on a Saturday after visiting the Balloon Fiesta in Albuquerque which was a mistake as many others had the same idea. We took the Rail Runner down and Tomasitas parking lot sits by the northern terminus of the... More

Went for dinner and had a very pleasnant meal. Place was packed but we only waited 5 to 10 minutes. Service was good even though the staff was jumping. Enjoyed the food and the margaritas were very good.

We were just passing through Sante Fe, and stopped for lunch. The restaurant appears to be in the old RR station. Very good, and we would go there again. I loved being able to order sopapilla as a side dish.

Great New Mexican cuisine. The Saturday special is amazingly generous in size. After my husband and I ate all we could hold, our waitress admitted that many local couples split one dish. It was delicious and the sopopillas were yummy too.

This restaurant is at the top of many people's lists for restaurants in Santa Fe so we dutifully went to check it out. There was a long wait but we stuck it out. Lively and noisy (complete with an all female mariachi band!) with good service. Food was good and portions were immense so pace yourself.
