El Parasol South is one of three same-owned restaurants. (The downtown branch has no place to sit down, though.) This out-of-town facility is not that easy to find, but is very attractive, with an excellent patio and lots of wood and windows. The food is...More

A lot of people know about El Parasol - Andrew Zimmern visited the one on Cerrillos Road and he loved the chicken tacos (who doesn't). The restaurant chain opened a new location on the south end of Santa Fe that is just off the freeway....More

Don't miss any El Parasol location, but if you want to sit down in Santa Fe, you have to go to the on on Dinosaur Trail. We had Chicken Tacos and Green Chili Stew. Both were superb. Okay, it is not a tourist trap and...More

This is definitely not a tourist restaurant, as it is quite far from the main attractions in Santa Fe. But the quality and the prices deserve a visit. The menu is almost completely Mexican, specializing in pick-up items to be consumed right away or carried...More

This was a nice lunch stop on the south side of Santa Fe. We stopped here on our way into SF after a morning hiking at Kasha Katuwe; we were looking for casual and affordable. Hamburger had a wonderful flavor and fries were crispy and...More

Food was good but the cost and service were lacking. Too high prices because there is no table service and the girl behind the counter truly wished she were somewhere else. Nice & clean.

I ordered the beef taco plate. Shredded beef inside a crisp taco shell, topped with lettuce and cheese. Red salsa on the side. Everything was very good. And the prices are very reasonable.
