Cerrillos Road is one of the main traffic corridor in Santa Fe and this restaurant is right on the road. Fast service, good selection of meats including goat for your selection. Nice prices, generous portions and fast service

Every time we come to NM we have to eat here. Wonderful staff! Always so friendly and I never feel rushed. The menu is large... plenty of choices, even for someone like me who is lactose intolerant!
