I have been here many times and it is the only place that I can get New Mexican food. They have great green chili stew and stuffed indian fry bread. Everyone should try this place. Lots of flavors and great staff

We have been going to Sana Fe Flats for some time now, most recently this Friday evening. They offer a fresh twist on the classic Tex-Mex dishes and add the Santa Fe flare. We love the green and red Chile sauces that they use on there fajitas and enchiladas. Their menu has a little bit of everything and brings southwestern... More

If you are tired of the same Tex-Mex food, Santa Fe flats is the place to go for authentic Santa Fe Mexico type food. They have different heat levels of sauces and salsas. The food is fresh and comes out piping hot. Drinks are not watered down. Their carnitas are exceptional. They have lots of menu items, including Tex-Mex for... More

This restaurant specializes in a New Mexican flavor of Tex-Mex cuisine so it is somewhat different in its style and taste from other restaurants which offers some of the same dishes. The chimichangas are outstanding. This is a good restaurant which must compete against many other restaurants offering the same sort of meals.. The service was really good. There is... More

My son and I ate dinner here today August 1st 2016 and enjoyed the $6 chimichangas meal deal on Mondays. The food was outstanding and the service was also really great. Sara, our waitress, was always there to take care of refills and anything that we might need. (SEE PHOTOS)

My wife and I eat here once a month and she always order the same thing and it is a slight variation of a menu item and they always get it right. Wait staff is attentive and a manager is always nearby checking on service. We have been going here since they opened. They usually have a special , I... More

I took a client to eat here at his suggestion. It was overall pretty good. Service was a little slow for a business time meal but not too bad. Server was friendly and the food was good. I had the Flat Red Enchilada and it was good.

Family owned, and they always make you feel welcome. Live music on the patio adds to the ambience. Great food, great salsa bar, oh, and great Margarita's

We were immediately greeted and seated. Our order was taken as soon as we were ready. The Southwest Chicken and Shrimp was fantastic as were the fajitas. They have red and green sauce for the chips as well as a salsa bar with additional salsas, such as a spicy ranch. We will be back. Indoor and outdoor seating is available.

First time visiting here this lunch time and we will be back. The owner really went out of his way to make us feel so very welcome, he even gave my husband his second beer on the house. The food was delicious. I had the jalapeño covered chicken, which was a huge portion. Didn't take long for the food to... More
