“Great food, wait staff better”
Reviewed April 25, 2014

This restaurant is near the hospital, so it's a great place to stop if you're from out of town. I really like the breakfast here; they use red potatoes for the hash browns; very good. They've recently hired all new waitresses; which has improved the place a lot. They also give you a carafe of coffee with breakfast, also much better than before. The New Mexican food here is great ( if you like very spicy Mexican, the lamb is wonderful). But if you're tired of this sort of fare; try the hot roast beef sandwich; best I've ever had. It is large, has mushrooms on top of it, the roast beef is great, homemade wheat bread and the mashed potatoes are wonderful.

“Maybe Espanola's Best Spanish”
Reviewed April 16, 2014

Angelina's is not about upscale ambiance -- it's neat and clean but no fancy decor. Tables, chairs, and perhaps the best New Mexican food in Espanola. Which, as far as I can tell, means the best New Mexican food, period. Good selection, excellent specials and to top it off, two sopaipillas with your entree. Prices are extremely reasonable. It's a friendly place that's all about good food. Green is as good as it gets, red is occasionally extra potent.

We always stop at Angelina's on our way to Santa Fe and are never disappointed. The best Spanish rice ever! The service is friendly and wonderful. The atmosphere is friendly and open and the food is fantastic. Highly recommend!

“Good NM Cooking”
Reviewed December 27, 2013

We had the pasole and chicos here and were very satisfied. The green chili is very hot so be forewarned. The staff was friendly and courteous. This is very good small town restaurant.

“Authentic and homemeade!”
Reviewed November 27, 2013

Stopped here on the way back to Santa Fe from Ojo Caliente and we are so glad we found this place! The waitress was incredibly nice and service was very good. We had the rellenos and rolled enchiladas- both were delicious and made to order with red chile that was amazing and green chile that was hot and delicious. We weren't going to eat the sopapillas but after a couple of bites we couldn't resist...polished off the whole order. We noticed the place could use a good cleaning, and the writers that have mentioned the simple decor are correct- nothing fancy, just good food.
