“Excellent food. New favorite in Santa Fe.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2012

We had dinner here our first night in Santa Fe and in retrospect wish we had returned for more. My wife had the Carne Adovada Enchiladas and I had the Blue Corn Chicken Enchiladas. Both were fantastic. Service was personable and the atmosphere was friendly. Highly recommended.

“Shed Substitute”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2012

Owned by the same folks who operate the famous "Shed" restaurant. Same great New Mexico style food one would expect from these folks. Ambiance is lacking and location is tricky to find.

“Best Southwest Dishes”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2012

Adovado is the best here. The red sauce is great. Service could be better, but the foods makes up for it.

“One of our regular stops”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2012

Always good, always friendly. I liked that they had a Downs Syndrome guy helping seat guests. All around great place, you owe yourself a stop.Everything from more exotic dishes to frito pie!

“Good service but . . .”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2012

The La Choza had great service. It began by being serenaded by the very friendly security guard in the parking lot. The ambiance was pleasant though busy. The service was prompt and our servers were attentive and helpful. The entree she suggested for me was quite good. However my wife ordered the recommended fish tacos and they were cold. Cold fish is -- well, just icky.
