“My Brother-in-Law Loves the Longey Tacos”
Reviewed March 10, 2012

Hosted by a very friendly Mexican family. Our families meet here a lot on Friday's. Good food and excellent service. Right next door to Shannon's. My wife loves the Margaritas. At dinner you may have to wait 15-20 minutes.

“Great local place”
Reviewed January 30, 2012

Good food, very good service from family oriented place. There is the usual selection of dishes, but with a distinctive twist. They don't try to be overly authentic, but is not Tex-Mex by any means. Check out the specials for the quesadilla poblana, very good.

“Decent food but very noisy”
Reviewed November 13, 2011

I live maybe three miles from Santa Fe Restaurant and go there once every few months. It's a decent Mexican restaurant with good margaritas and quite fine seafood enchiladas. The mole sauce is okay but not great. My major complaint with the place is that it can get terribly noisy, and I like to be able to converse over dinner. It's best to visit during off-peak hours: afternoons or early on a weekday evening. If you go on Friday and Saturday night, you may enjoy the enchiladas but you won't hear a word from whomever you're there with. Servers are likable but slow; you'll get plenty of time to enjoy your water and the chips.

“Decent food and friendly service”
Reviewed September 13, 2011

A good local place for some tasty mexican food. Specials on the board almost every night. Can get a little loud, whether in the front or back of the restaurant, but worth putting up with it.

“Ok nothing special”
Reviewed September 12, 2011

Wait staff was ok.. place was really empty for lunch time on a Saturday when downtown was busy.. I think this was the old slot car hobby shop.. downstairs where the bathrooms are.. very musty smelling.

Food was ok.. but the mild sausa.. looked more like Campbells tomato soup.. Never did see that color before.
