A lot of people know about El Parasol - Andrew Zimmern visited the one on Cerrillos Road and he loved the chicken tacos (who doesn't). The restaurant chain opened a new location on the south end of Santa Fe that is just off the freeway....More

Don't miss any El Parasol location, but if you want to sit down in Santa Fe, you have to go to the on on Dinosaur Trail. We had Chicken Tacos and Green Chili Stew. Both were superb. Okay, it is not a tourist trap and...More

This is definitely not a tourist restaurant, as it is quite far from the main attractions in Santa Fe. But the quality and the prices deserve a visit. The menu is almost completely Mexican, specializing in pick-up items to be consumed right away or carried...More

Food was good but the cost and service were lacking. Too high prices because there is no table service and the girl behind the counter truly wished she were somewhere else. Nice & clean.

I ordered the beef taco plate. Shredded beef inside a crisp taco shell, topped with lettuce and cheese. Red salsa on the side. Everything was very good. And the prices are very reasonable.

After a quick trip from Albuquerque to Santa Fe, we decided to have lunch with friends before heading home on July 8, 2017. The food was fantastic, and reasonably priced. Their homemade posole (without chile) was awesome. I had their 2 hard tacos, one shredded...More
