“Visit often”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

This is a restaurant I visit often with family and friends both. The staff is friendly and speedy. The food is always good. The guacamole is fantastic!!!! The owner makes the rounds and stops to talk to his patrons. Always a good restaurant choice.

“Good Food”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

There is plenty of seating. The food is very good and the prices are reasonable. If you like Margaritas, they have excellent one here.

“Re: Santa Fe”
Reviewed July 23, 2012

I have been going here for years and I have to say that the food for me has not been as good the last couple of times I have ate here. I know there has been some turn over with cooks and that could be causing the inconsistency, perhaps. I also feel that their margaritas are way overpriced. I have experienced on a couple of occasions that the staff, can be a little cold and it is my opinion, but I think there are a lot better restuarants in the area to spend my hard earned money, especially these days with money being so tight.

“Love this place...”
Reviewed June 20, 2012

The service, atmosphere, food, and drinks are are wonderful... We love their food ... My husband says they have the best mole sauce of any Mexican Restaurant we have been to... Also, we have been many places to have margaritas and these are the best of anywhere...We only live 1 hour away and go here as often as we can.... We are spoiled by this great restaurant and is very hard when we are travelling to find anything as good..

“Excellent Mexican (and American) food”
Reviewed February 6, 2012

The staff and food at Santa Fe are great. Moderate prices. Gets really crowded on Fri & Sat nights. As a result you will probably have to wait for a table but the wait is well worth it. Margaritas are the best that my wife and I have had anywhere (including Mexico) !!! Mexican food is exceptional but the American food, though goodis nothing exceptional. I highly recommend dinner or lunch at Santa Fe.
