We love to visit Triple D locations and this has been on the list for a while. The menu and the restaurant are eclectic. This time, I opted for the fajita steak pupusas--and they were AWESOME!!!!! Others in my group had burgers and the salmon bagel. Which were all great. This place is well worth a visit. You can't go wrong on the menu!

Ate dinner here, we enjoyed the food here so much, we showed up again the following day for lunch. For dinner we had the salmon tacos and my girlfriend had the El Salvadoran combo (pupusa, tamales). The tune up salad was excellent and so were both our entrees. For the lunch, I had the lamb burger while the girlfriend had the enchiladas. The food, service and the beer were all good. We'll definitely like to eat here again on our next SF visit.

This is a great little place. It is small and table are packed in every available inch of floor space. You order and pay at the counter, for breakfast and lunch find a table and they bring you your meal. For dinner they have a typical wait staff (although we did not have dinner, this is what they told us). The have a chalkboard of specials in addition to the menu. Everything is wonderful, the best refried beans I've ever had. And the chipotle salsa, divine. Prices are lower than around the plaza and the food is as good or better. Fresh ingredients, well prepared. The omlettes are very good and other breakfast menu choices looked very nice. The owner was working on the dinner menu which we will enjoy the next time we are in Santa Fe.

Great Breakfasts, Baked-Goods and Coffee in the morning. Tasty lunches. High-end casual, creative dinner menu. Cool, semi-funky atmosphere. Friendly staff. Great beer and wine selection. Reasonable prices. Something for everyone! An off the beaten path, go-to spot for this local!
