Friends in Santa Fe told us to try this restaurant for burritos so we went there last night. We were pleasantly surprised as the place was very clean with some booths and tables. It was about 4:30PM and their Thursday Special was listed as Carne...More

We arrived around 1PM on a Sunday. The parking lot was full, but our party of four was seated right away. We shared queso with green chilies; thankfully, servers kept the water glasses filled!!! DH and I, based on another TA review, shared stuffed sopapillos....More

Great gem off of Cerillos Rd. Waitstaff is very friendly and prices are very reasonable. The stuffed sopaipillas are AMAZING (as is pretty much everything else on the menu). I would seriously make a trip to Santa Fe just for those.

I was staying at the motel across the street and walked over to order dinner take-out. Restaurant had dim ambient lighting inside. My enchiladas had very spicy hot red chili sauce - the real deal, I would say. I was surprised that my to-go order...More

This is my new favorite restaurant in Santa Fe. The Blue Corn Chicken Enchiladas are absolutely the best I have ever had. Chips & salsa are also good and not to mention the service is impeccable!

Friendly, smells good and the food is as good as any top Mexican restaurant anywhere. Heaps of green chile on perfect enchiladas & flautist. Perfect beef fajitas, & the best ever green chile queso.

The employees are very nice and cafe is very clean and very decorative. I liked the t shirt designs (for sale at the cafe), but I just didn't care for the food. I like Mexican style food but in this case it gave me heart...More
