Place was located next to the hotel I was staying at. It was recommended by the hotel staff as a place where locals eat. It is a family owned/family run small restaurant serving New Mexican food. I had the taco dinner which included two tacos (I selected chicken instead of beef), rice, beans, some small cubed white veggies and sopapilla... More

We went there for Sunday lunch. The service was lightning quick and the waitstaff were friendly and efficient. The raspberry iced tea was fantastic (as was the food). Amazing prices as well!

An old school Santa Fe spot with a laid-back, diner-like atmosphere. To start, this is my favorite green chile. Be careful with the #2 (hot) - they don't joke around at HH. If it's you're first time and you want to try it, get it on the side. Fave dishes: 3D burrito, burger, enchiladas, carne adovada, beans.

The service is very good and staff is eager to make you happy, even if you already are. We've had breakfast and we've had lunch - we have... More

This restaurant serves excellent, real Mexican food. Its got as much bite to it as you want. This is a family owned restaurant that is the best in Santa Fe in my opinion. If you saw if from the road, you probably wouldn't stop because it is very small. The only thing they serve is Mexican and it is fantastic.... More

It was our first visit, and certainly will not be te last one! This is a small place, next to a gas station, had seen it before when stopping for gas, but not really interested on visiting. But after a really good recommendation from friends we wanted to try it. It was really good. Everything!!: Ambiance, service, timing and taste!... More

This place should come with a big warning ; ORDER THE CHILE ON THE SIDE ! Located in a gas station down by the mall and Wal mart it's a true local spot. Cheap, big portions etc. But the chile is only for locals. Really good though I read in the paper they have an issue with SF's living wage... More

A gigantic half-pound burger about 40 percent larger than the bun with all the fixins was plated with home fries and presented to me. I wish I had a pic of my eyes when it was served. WOW! and by the way it was delicious!!
