“Long time favorite now on the upswing”
Reviewed December 16, 2012

This is a long time favorite. We kind of quit going a few years ago when they raised their prices. I'm pleased to report that the prices overall have caught up to them, and their food has gotten better. Lots of reasonable offerings at fair prices and good deserts. They aren't a brew pub, but they have a good selection on tap, so you won't notice. Outdoor dining, with dogs allowed on the patio and a family friendly atmosphere notwithstanding its bar and grill market position. They don't take Discover card.

“Nice meal, great service”
Reviewed December 16, 2012

Had a sandwich and beer here while in town. Waitress was great, food was very good and atmosphere sets a nice tone here. They have a pool hall here to if you are looking for something to do after dinner. Nice choices of beers to choose from.

“great bar-b-que”
Reviewed December 13, 2012

The bbq chicken is flavorful and moist. The sides of cold slaw, beans and potato salad really fill you up. But the most fun is watching the people. The music is fun and in the summer, the patio is great

“Great restaurant”
Reviewed December 9, 2012 via mobile

The restaurant has a great atmosphere as well as great food. The service was excellent as well. The food was cooked exactly as ordered and the green chile is authentic new mexico chile. They have a decent sized bar with nightly entertainment. Try the game burger and chile cheese fries. They were both great.

“Fun, funky, and Delish”
Reviewed December 9, 2012

By far our favorite BBQ place in Santa Fe. Smoked meat, good sauce, large portions, friendly staff - Cowgirls is a Santa Fe classic.
