This is a little off the beaten path. But so good. The coffee, the wine...but oh, the food! I had lamb. So nice. They really have it down. They serve a super breakfast too. The atmosphere it clubby. I feel like a regular.

Chile relleno is a pretty common dish in New Mexico - as it should be and I have had it in many restaurants throughout the state. However my breakfast of chile relleno, refried beans, two eggs and a large tortilla were the best I have...More

Stopped for lunch after 4 hour mountain hike. Great Salmon tacos, snapper tacos and Cuban sandwich with the latter getting the #1 rating. We made a return trip later in the week for breakfast. Don't let the line discourage you - moves quickly and service...More

Ate there at lunch last week. Always busy, good Santa Fe style mexican comfort food. Try the lamb tacos, good beer on draft. Al dishes are good, green chili stew a winner. Located away from city center, so parking is easy. Neighborhood is becoming more...More
