“On the Plaza”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

Roque has been on the Plaza in Santa Fe for over 27 years and seems to have learned something about cooking in that time. Authentic and delicious, cooked in front of you.

“Authentic cabrito”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

If you are concerned about visiting old Mexico come to the Santa Fe plaza. One of the best feature is Roque's cart which is a fixture. The meat is wonderful and he uses some of the proceeds to help Mexican schools. Stop and chat.

“Fresh, Yummy and Affordable”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Best cart food on the historic plaza. Local favorite. Cooked fresh while you wait. Grab a great meal for a low price and sit on the plaza and watch the world go by!
The owner is a local character who loves his cooking.
Definitely a Santa Fe icon in the summer.

“Aussies on a US road trip”
Reviewed May 31, 2012

Roques carnitas are a must have when in Santa Fe. We were here three years ago, and again had to have a Carnita. Great food, just be careful, the juices don't get all over your shirt. Well worth the dry cleaning bill though. A legend!
