I heard this restaurant was favored by local residents and, when we tried to go on a Friday evening at 6.15 the wait was 45 minutes! We returned on a less busy evening. The decor and ambiance is pleasing, but we were underwhelmed by the personalities of the hostess and waitstaff. The food was good, but not as good as some of the other places we ate at in Santa Fe.

Was told the chili was "gringo spicy" and in fact is was almost too hot to eat. Waitress said that it comes out of the kitchen a different heat level every day. We had to wait 45 minutes for a table. We had called to make reservations and was told that they don't accept them, just to fine people coming in and being seated because they had a reservation. Would not go back

This is one of the best New Mexican food we ever had; seems to be a favorite spot for locals. It was crowded eventhough it is tucked away from the main road. The atmosphere is excellent. We liked green and red chile mix (christmas).

Red chile here is the best in town. It starts with a good bite but gets sweet as your meal progresses. Try beef enchilada plate - Red.

Busy these days. Be prepared to wait a bit.

This is the sister restaurant of the Shed. The big difference is this is the place where the
locals go for their chile fix, red or green or both (Christmas). Outstanding Northern New
Mexican food with great enchiladas, chile rellanos and burritos. Great service and very
colorful. It's a must visit when in Santa Fe.
