We were looking for good, fast, local food while in Santa Fe one afternoon and stumbled upon (Posa's) El Merendero on Zafarano and it was everything we were looking for. We had the Posa's Original Burrito and cheese fries with green chili and both were outstanding. Most people were ordering breakfast burritos, so obviously that is a local favorite as well. This is an order-at-the-counter place so don't expect a lot of atmosphere but, if you're looking for great local food, this is the place. We will be back next time we're in town.

...and they have the awards on the wall to prove it. A surprising number of items are vegan or vegetarian (when was the last time you saw vegan tamales or sopapillas?), but of course they have beef, chicken, and pork too. Offers casual dining inside or outside, as well as take-out and catering. Don't miss the horchata! I could literally eat here for every meal (they have a breakfast menu.)

This is some of the best new mexican food I've eaten at. The food was hot, the chile was hot, The people were friendly. Plus I loved that i could watch the famous tamales being made as we ate. Great place to take family, friends, anyone! The chile is hot, so if you're ot of town ask for it "on the side".
