“Say Si Senor when in Farmington, New Mexico.”
Reviewed June 6, 2012

Only a short distance from the Animas Valley Mall is Si Senor, a superior Mexican cuisine restaurant where dress can be from your Sunday best to the most comfortable casual. The interior is beautifully done with hanging ristras (arrangements of dried chile pods) and awards for their fine wines. The hostess is quick to greet you with a smile and seat you at one of their beautiful tables.

The centerpiece of the restaurant is a lovely white fountain surrounded by fine wooden tables and craved chairs. There is marble everywhere, including the restrooms, and you have the feeling of being in a fine hacienda. A waitress takes your drink order, giving you time to peruse their varied menu, and a listing of daily specials.

After giving our food order, we received a basket of fried tortilla chips with two condiments, a salsa and a divine jalapeno cream cheese dip which I suspect has sour cream in it to obtain its creaminess. Now here is a hint on the spice index for Si Senor; medium to hot. If you are one who likes your spice slim to none, Si Senor is not your type of place; then again, how can one eat Mexican without a little heat?

There were five of us dining together, so you'll get a good glimpse of what is available.

The Si Senor salad - Marinated chicken or beef, grilled with fresh onion, bell peppers and tomatoes, placed on a bed of fresh green lettuce, served with cheese, guacamole and sour cream.

Taco Platter - three tacos made with corn tortillas, chicken, shredded or ground beef; served with rice and refried beans. While the rice is spicy, the refried beans are creamy and absolutely delicious; both are basically served with every entree.

Many dishes are served with a choice of red or green chili sauce; tender chunks of pork are in the sauce; the green sauce is slightly sweeter than the red.

Combination #1 - chili rellano, taco and cheese enchilada.

Combination #2 - tamale, taco and cheese enchilada.

Combination #3 - flauta, taco and cheese enchilada.

For dessert we had Sopapillas (deep fried flatbread) with honey; a perfect light finish to one of Si Senor's meals.

So when in Farmington, New Mexico and you're craving Mexican food, just say "Si Senor!"

“Not Santa Fe”
Reviewed May 23, 2012

This was great mexican food, not all fancyed up and disquised. The flavors were great and the portions were plentiful. What a great experience for the four corners region.

“Good food great service”
Reviewed April 24, 2012

we had dinner with 20 friends at the restaurant. The waitstaff managed to take care of all of us without ignoring the rest of the restaurant. I have not had a better experience at any other restaurant in Farmington
