We stopped here for a margarita last week, so am not commenting on the food as we did not order any. They have an extensive menu of margaritas, all made with fresh lemon and lime juices, good tequilas, etc. The issue wasn't with the drink nor the ingredients, nor the service nor the setting...the issue was that the drinks were...

Ate here for lunch with co-workers. We all had a variety of entrees. (Chips and salsa are not complimentary) I alway order the blue corn soft tacos with chicken . Not much different from an enchilada but more meat. Great sopapillas.

This was a wonderful restaurant with a great atmosphere and yummy food. There were seven of us and everything we ordered was delicious! My son had an enchilada and the red chili sauce was divine. The posole was yummy and the sopapillas were a great ending to our meal. I would definitely recommend this place. Great Pokestops nearby as well.

This place is packed every night! Excellent red chili on the enchiladas. Pork posole is served as a side with many plates. Salsa is hot and very tasty. Margaritas are excellent with many different choices. This is a great place for those that really love New Mexican food. They take reservations, so plan ahead! They are well staffed and someone...

Brought my family here to get similar food as the Shed without the crazy wait. The New Mexican food is quite authentic!

Recommended by Uber driver. Long wait. 45 minutes. Hope the food is good! Drinks leave MUCH to be desired! Very expensive and little alcohol... Still have not eaten... Still waiting. Feel like I'm drugged... I'm not sure we can make it to the table at this point.

The food is really good. Free parking in the back. Wine menu could be better. This is the sister restaurant to the shed downtown Santa Fe but without the long wait.

I made my annual visit to Santa Fe in July and had dinner at La Choza for the first time. The night before I left I asked my friend Nancy if we could go to a good New Mexican restaurant because we really hadn't had New Mexican food during the week that I was there. She told me about La... More

Only thing they have going for them is location that's not downtown. The building is shabby and dirty and noisy. My enchiladas were soupy. And the worst service I've had at Santa Fe.
