This is a regular dinner stop for our family when in town. The food is consistently excellent. The service is great. The atmosphere is rustic, classic Santa Fe. One year there was even a mariachi band!

Got in late on Thanksgiving evening. The staff was wonderful and the food was phenomenal as always. The best burgers in town. The menu is small but everything is done well. And try the house margarita. Wonderful!

This definitely seems like a local hangout, which is great for a low-key evening with casual fare. Enchiladas were tasty and we'd certainly order again. Cocktails were OK. We had a few very generic margaritas that were a bit too sweet or too heavy on...More

We stopped in over the weekend while we were in town for a late afternoon lunch. The fireplace was wonderful and so was the drinks. Service was a little slow as I believe it was shift change. The fireplace made the whole visit so enjoyable.

Inside the Inn of the Governors. This is my favorite spot to eat and drink in Santa Fe. Best house margarita in town. Food is also inexpensive with a lot of locals there for lunch and dinner. This is a must while in Santa Fe....More
