A favorite of mine. Off the beaten path on a side street. Well worth checking it out. Great food at a low price.

The BBBG is awesome!!!! Everything is fresh and tasty. I love the fish tacos and my wife loves the green chile stew with either chicken or pork. There are daily/weekly specials. The staff is wonderful and so is the atmosphere. We always try and stop by the BBBG once or twice during our stay and we are always happy we... More

This is a quick stop. Drive through or come in. Extensive menu of favorites. The food is good but not exceptional but at a good price for Santa Fe. I had the Green Chile Tortilla Burger. This is the same as a Green Chile Cheeseburger but served inside a rolled tortilla instead of on a bun. Good. The also offer... More

Everyone raves about the fish tacos, and they're good, but so is the chicken with cilantro-lime rice. We did a big take-out order and brought it back to a friend's home for dinner. They really know how to package take-out here.

Thank You! That's nice to hear that you enjoy our TAKE-OUT! Even though we're famous for our fish tacos... our natural chicken is pretty tasty! We marinate it overnight and slow cook it on the rotisserie! Please BUZZ BY again! More

Bumble Bee Bob, as we call the restaurant has been a local favorite ever since it originated years ago. This is the informal place to go if you want very good southwestern food at a reasonable price. The menu is ever changing and "right on with imagination". Yes, they do have a drive in; however, note that the verbiage on... More

Ordered beans and rice with chicken and got a whole chicken instead. The guacamole was very good. Kids did not like having roasted chicken thighs instead of their beans and rice bowls with chicken. Make sure you chexk your to go bag for them.

Get the chicken green chile stew, you are welcome. The burritos are great too. I love their sandia (watermelon) agua fresca. Cute decor, nice outdoor patio. The locals keep the drive through busy. This place is easy to miss, off Guadalupe and Johnson Streets.

I come to Santa Fe about 3-4 times a year and have enjoyed visiting bumblebee since the first year it opened. Today I visited with my kids. I ordered the Mexican corn, a Steak taco, and chips and salsa. Everything was terrific! The kid options are great too. They serve burgers and hot dogs as well as amazing Mexican food.... More

This place, set up like a fast food restaurant had AMAZING food. For a very good price we ate a feast and very much enjoyed the atmosphere, and employees and of course the food. Their fish tacos were divine! Sad we didn't have time to eat there again.
