“Not worth more than a 20 minute wait.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2011

Good but not necessarily worth the wait. Maria's is better.

“Wonderful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2011

The food was amazing, the margaritas were the best I've had in a long time and the service was exceptional .... I would highly recommend going not only once but twice!

“Worth the wait”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2011

On a cold sunny day you can wait your turn for lunch on the patio. Nice people well managed the crowd with beepers and message that you can expect " half hour to one and half hour wait". After the hour wait, the food met our TripAdvisor review expectations. Nice choices, good flavors and friendly staff made for a memorable meal. Sure, we would return for this good value.

“Still the best place to eat in Santa Fe even after 40 years”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2011

Yep, we've been eating here for over 40 years. It is still the place we head to first whenever we are in town. The second location just doesn't seem to have the charm of the original. I don't know if it is psychological, but the food also doesn't seem as good. We pretty much stick to the old standards, enchiladas, burritos-- with the usual "Christmas" mix of sauces. I think the portions could probably stand to be a bit bigger-- it's only cheese/tortilla and some hominy, after all.

If you've never been to Santa Fe, the Shed is definitely worth the wait, although you may enjoy it more if you try to get in either early or closer to 2 pm.

“Food is wonderful.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2011

The food is wonderful at The Shed, but the host seemed a little confused. Maybe it was the big crowd. We were passed over twice for a table for our party's size.
