“Street Tacos”
Reviewed June 12, 2014

Best kept secret in Santa Fe! The prices were fair, the tacos amazing. The staff was friendly. The outside deck was nice. You have to try the watermelon margarita, it wasn't overly sweet, and you could actually taste the tequila. I ate their twice during my visit, and would have eaten their more, but I didn't find it until the end of my trip.

“X CELLENT!”
Reviewed June 10, 2014

One block past San Miguel Mission under the umbrellas is this little treasure . Our waitress, Bree, was friendly and very knowledgeable about the menu(sooooo appreciated). The food is the best I have had anywhere and I have had Mexican food everywhere! The Chilie Relleno is spicy and rich and Fluffy and smothered in green chilie is the way to go! (as opposed to the new style of relleno breaded and deepfried) DELICIOUS! My Husbands Santa FE Burger was high quality beef and cooked to perfection. The only thing I would add is don't forget to order a Michalada, very refreshing.

“Fresh and authentic Mexican food”
Reviewed June 9, 2014 via mobile

This place is definitely worth the visit. The food was very fresh and truly authentic.

Try the street tacos and the aguas frescas; watermelon and lemon flavored "fresh waters" are so refreshing they hit the spot on a warm day.

“Why go anywhere else”
Reviewed June 7, 2014

We have a vacation home in Santa Fe and have eaten at every Mexican restarant in town. This was by far the most outstanding meal. The chips with guacamole and queso was so good...could have stopped there. The taco trio plater was not only delicious but the presentation was just beautiful. Unlike most Mexican restaurants, each item on the plate stood out alone...showcasing just how marvelous the food was going to be. My daughter said her chicken enchilada was superb and the carnitas order by our third diner was beyond compare. The best part though was the sopapia....never had one like it. No room for dessert but the description made me wish we weren't leaving town the next day. The owners were as great as the meal. This should be a must stop while in Santa Fe.
