My wife and Daughter (7 years old) came across this restaurant during our recent Road Trip which took us through Santa Fe. We chose Adelitas because it looked family friendly and American enough to have food our daughter would not be too picky over. Once we sat down we realized we were at an authentic Mexican restaurant (at least for... More

Excellent service from the minute we walked in. Fajitas were sizzling and delicious. Easy to find on Cerrillos Road. Will dine here again when in Santa Fe.

First two visits were good, but four months later, we were disappointed. My husband ordered a beef torta and the beef was paper thin, plus we were charged for guacamole that was not ordered as he doesn't like it. My fish taco was basically fish and chips with an under layer of tortilla. The side of pinto beans was good.... More

You go here for the quality of the food. They have an extensive menu to choose from. There were five of us and we all made excellent choices. The cost is reasonable and the servers are part of the family.

Decided to give this place a try. Food was great and service was attentive. My hubs and I ordered the combo plate and chose a beef taco, chile relejno and tamale with hatch green chili sauce. Should have trusted the waitress that the sauce would be hot. Made my face sweat and nose run. Too hot for me but not... More

We chose this place as it was basically across the street from Meow Wolfe. Adelitas was able to accomodate our large group of 14 very quickly. The server was very patient and never rushed us. The meals came out fast, and were nicely presented. The entrees at dinner time averaged $10-$13. There was more than enough food and we would... More

New Mexican cooking at it's best. The tortilla burger smothered in red & green chile was wonderful and spicey! The menudo there is the best in the city!

We received a recommendation from a local hotel and were not disappointed! Loved the chips & salsa to start our meals - accompanied by excellent homemade guacamole. Service was great and all of our main dishes were quickly served hot, fresh, and bountiful. Really enjoyed the complementary sopapillas at the end of the meal - we were stuffed! This is... More
