Thought we were back in Mexico dining here !! The menu is pretty extensive with lots of great choices. Had the gorditos and they were tasty. We would definitely come back as there's at least another dozen items on the menu wewould like to try.

Great service, promt seating, attentive waitress. I had the pupusas,she had the enchiladas. Very good. Best Mexican food outside the quick food joints Ive had in NM. I pass on the New Mexican restaurants red or green is just way too limiting in choices. I always opt for a good Mexican restaurant youll have more choices in the menu and... More

Great versions of true Mexican cuisine such as Chiles en Nogada. Criterion guacamole.. Friendly service with a desire to please customer, even a crowd.

We were going out to El Parasol, because our weekly magazine The Santa Fe Reporter recently designated it as having the best breakfast burrito in town. Unfortunately, it turned out the location was drive-through only and we weren't interested in that. So we tried Los Portrillos, just a few blocks down the street, as there were a number of cars...

We heard this was a great restaurant & it was pretty good. Definitely warm inside needed some a/c on. The chile rellenos was amazing. Must try!! The chicken mole wasn't that great. Kids got burger and cheese quesadillas both really enjoyed them!

I have had the Chicken Mole 3 times and it was excellent each time. Last time I got the rellenos and they actually use Poblano peppers! They were great. Most "Mexican" places in the region incorrectly use New Mexico Green Chilis for rellenos. I like both types of chilis, but I also like that this place doesn't have an identity... More

We decided not to join our travel group to have supper at a brew house (found out the next day that we were smart not to go), so we drove down the street from our motel to look for an interesting place to eat. Although it was close to closing time, the staff let us in, was welcoming, and friendly.... More

Some friends recommended this restaurant since we were traveling through Santa Fe. We were there on a Saturday night and it was crowded as most reviews indicated. As my wife and I sat at our table after being seated quickly, about 10 minutes passed before anyone welcomed us to our table and provided water. It was another 5 -10 minutes... More

This was the best Mexican restaurant we've been to about a year ago and when we visited it again this year, we weren't disappointed. Still great food for a reasonable price and great service. Absolutely worth it.

Good places are packed & this was no exception. It was well worth the money 20 minute wait. Shrimp tacos were outstanding!
