Reasonable southwestern style food. Cafeteria style, order up front and they bring it to you. Hatch chile sauce was a little slimy, but the red sauce was great. Very casual, bring the family. Also try the chili pie around the corner. They have a shake with pie in it.

Came here tonight for a light dinner. Didn't seem busy for a Saturday night which was great. Service was friendly and quick. Tortilla chips and guacamole were good. Steak quesadilla was awesome!

Very very good Mexican food, simple and attractive location, helpful staff and a great selection of flavoursome and inexpensive food, Worked great for two adults and two teens, flavours were fresh and great, heat to suit your taste, large portions and very decent VFM, Worth taking the time to find, for sure!

It seems strange to find a New Mexican style restaurant in SF but it's really very good. I particularly like their carne adovada and get the blue corn tortillas with it instead of the sopaipillas although I do like the latter, especially since they have a unique chili infused honey to put on the sopaipilla. My daughter tried the posole... More

I took some plate full of some Mexican delicacies. Most of them were good. But one of them was absolutely the most boring. Can't remember which one. I think it was the refried. I would definitely go again but I would avoid the boring stuff I took last time. Also very nice style with long tables and self service water... More

I came here based on the trip advisor reviews and was not disappointed! The friendly woman at the counter recommended the chicken and mashed potatoes with green chiles. That was delicious. I tried a pork tamale which was a bit dry, but tasty, and improved by the red salsa. They have a fine selection of beers including several IPAs. It... More

Being a native New Mexican, I come to Green Chile Kitchen when I am feeling homesick. They have great Hatch Green Chile and traditional New Mexican cuisine.

This restaurant has more of a style of a local cantina than a restaurant, so its ok for a meal, but not if you want a pleasant dining experience. Staff totally ignored us when we came in (and it wasn't even busy). Food was ok but nothing special. The miserable manager even refused to call a taxi for us when... More

This place is related to Green Chili Kitchen which is a block away. They have sweet and savory pies, ice cream and some items from the Kitchen. The pies look amazing, and the chocolate pie I had was. The ice cream is really good too. They have Frito pie which, of course, is served in the Frito bag
