Nothing fancy about the restaurant, looks like a fast food place. But this place has the best tamales and posole I have ever had. I am no stranger to Mexican food and this food was outstanding. Most people were getting food to go but we ate there. You can see the area,"factory", were they make the tamales, which is kind of fun. The prices are very inexpensive especially when you considered the quality and quantity of food. We left stuffed. A must when visiting Santa Fe.

Ask a local in Santa Fe where to go for the best, most authentic Mexican food, and it's likely they'll refer you to Posa's El Merendero. While there, we watched countless people and families coming for to-go orders, exiting with multiple bags, or even boxes of food. The tamales and enchiladas are fantastic, smothered in the best red chile sauce I have ever encountered (I did not try the green sauce, but will if ever in town again); the Carne Adovada (I had pork) was an absolute explosion of flavor, texture, mild heat, and genuine goodness in my mouth. The tortillas and sopapillas are homemade, and fresh, and it shows.
Don't expect a chain variety Tex-Mex experience - there is no Mexican music, no ultra-colorful and hyper-decorated furniture or surroundings - just comfortable seating and GREAT FOOD.

Super addictive salsa and great chips. It would nice if the restaurant had 2 registers to keep lines moving at peak hours. Very popular!

All their food is great but the red chile
posole with pork is great spicy. Lots of pork and tasty red chile. Tamales homemade and all the new mex food is worth the drive. Eat in or carry out. Two locations in Santa Fe. You will be hooked

We buy tamales by the dozen here and stop in for smothered red chile burritos. Hot chile not for most turists but if you love red chile it is one of the better restaurants. Not fancy mostly carry out..
