The Pantry Restaurant, located on Cerrillos Road in an old building not far from the plaza isn't all that flashy. But don't let the full parking lot discourage you. Yes, there are probably people sitting on the benches outside the door, waiting to be notified that it's their turn. But 15 or twenty minutes wait is not too long when... More

I enjoy Chile Rellenos. Wednesday night special was a delightful chile relleno coated in a light egg batter, a moderate amount of cheese, and set between rice and beans.

We enjoyed this place so much we ate there 2 days in a row! Frito pie, fish tacos, enchiladas- all tasty, well prepared and reasonable. It is always busy but turnover is quick- filled almost entirely with locals. DO NOT MISS THE SOPAPILLAS- BEST WE HAVE EVER HAD.

Our favorite green chili and red chili sauces in Santa Fe. My hubby had the burrito and I had the combination plate. The chili relleno was good but my favorite in the area was in Taos.

We make a point of eating here every time we visit Santa Fe. Love their breakfasts! There is nearly always a line, though, so be prepared to wait. Well worth it, though!

A great example of why I like diners! Very busy because they have great breakfasts and, they keep the tables turning so that you can still get fast service.

Whenever we go to Santa Fe we always eat at The Pantry. The service and food is excellent! They have the best corn beef hash ever and if you order this get a side of green chilies to go with it, outstanding! Good home cooked NM food.

The Pantry serves great breakfast food all day, as well as lunch entrees. They have a good variety of items. They serve New Mexican food too. They close early though at approximately 2 or 3 pm. They will cater your wedding parties & events.

This is a local hangout. Don't tell the tourists - the line's already long enough. No one else in town can touch these retried beans! All have tried... For good New Mexican breakfast or lunch, the pantry is down home cookin' for all.

Great service, good New Mexican cuisine as well and specials and great soups. The roof hours between meals are just about the only time you can get in with out a wait. but the wait isn't usually long and you can sit at the counter if your in a hurry.

Thank restless108
