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!

We stopped here with another couple with whom we were vacationing in the Southwest. The service was enthusiastic with good house Margaritas (no draft beer). To say this place was popular with the locals is an understatement. Most of the customers were Hispanic and the place was joyful with older couples, kids and maybe grandkids celebrating a birthday; a table... More

Dining room was packed with small and large groups, all enjoying the well-prepared large plates of food. The chicken/beef fajitas had lots of veggies and was very tasty.

This was recommended to us from one of the locals. since it was on the way back to the hotel we thought lets try it,. The portions are super large i wished I had not eaten a regular lunch. I had the chili relleno which was so stuffed with cheese and you got two large ones. The sauce was good... More

I am not sure if this restaurant would classify as "new" or "traditional" mexican cuisine. My wife and I went there and had two great meals. Staff was very attentive and friendly and the food was really good. As noted by others, the manu printed on plastic with meal figures gives a wrong impression, but, as dinner proceeds, menu becomes... More

This was a great pkace to eat for the food. The enchilada was delicious. I also thought the rice and beans were good. The service was good. The restaurant was a little noisy. It was very crowded and seemed to be popular. It has tike floors and the decor was very traditional. The tables are a bit close.
