Had lunch on Sunday after hiking at tent rocks. Food is good and portion is nice. I had fish tacos and they are exactly what I expected.

Sopapilla was greasy on one side. Food was WAY overpriced. Table unbalanced spilled coffee everywhere. Nice staff. I had the veggie burrito. I was pleased to find spinach inside; however, there was a little too much and I tasted more spinach than burrito!! Overall really disappointed compared to reviews.

If you're disappointed then we're disappointed! We've been in Santa Fe for over 65 years and we simply have too much practice to turn out a greasy sopapilla or a burrito with too much spinach. Normally, our food (and our tables) are well-balanced and I'm sorry we weren't able to prove it when you came in. That said, I really think you caught us on a bad night and we'd love another chance to live up to our reputation here on TripAdvisor.

Hope you'll consider it,
Michael Singley, Owner

This was our first visit to this popular eatery in Santa Fe. We only had to wait a few minutes for a table which was a pleasant surprise for a Sunday morning.

Our group had a variety of breakfast dishes; all were very good. The Huevos Rancheros and green chili omelet were to die for. Service was excellent and our server seemed to genuinely enjoy taking care of us.

Highly recommend.

We had breakfast here. We looked for a breakfast place in Santa Fe based on trip advisor reviews. It doesn't look like much on the outside but when you walk in the Decor is really cool. They have plenty of room and we waited just a few minutes for a table. There were several things we could've
selected from the menu based on our taste and what we did order we really enjoyed. Great find and recommend without hesitation for breakfast.

This place was recommended at the hotel up the street from it. The carne adovada came promptly and would have been great except that it had about 4 times as much salt in it as it should have had ( and I am one who likes things salty). I'm sure this was a mistake on their part. As I was just off a full day of driving and very hungry I just mooshed it together with the rice and beans, getting some extra tortillas to help with this as well. I would be willing to give them another chance.

I know how disappointing it can be to have a meal that doesn't hit the spot when you're hungry -- especially when that meal comes so highly recommended. I can assure you that, like you said, this was an oversight on our part. Regardless, that's not an excuse and I apologize if your food was too salty. We'd love another chance to show you that what happened was the exception and not the rule. We can do better and I'd love the opportunity to prove it to you!

Thanks,
Michael Singley, Owner
