We went because all reviews said they had the best chili rellenos in Santa Fe. I don’t know if that’s true but they were DELICIOUS! It came with eggs al gusto and beans. Guess why I was disappointed? Because it was only one chili, haha....More

Excellent seafood dish and the burgers looked big and juicy. Three tiered cakes - Tres Leches Cake was very good. Would highly recommend. It is a local family place with a kitchen staff that knows how to layer flavors in everything they make.

Our first time... We enjoyed the breakfast burritos, pancakes and Salvadorian eggs. This is a cozy joint with quality food at reasonable prices, not a swanky restaurant.

Tried this place for the first time. It’s a dive...and it’s AWESOME! Wife had the breakfast burrito, I had the Huevos Mutelenos. The food tasted great. The coffee was fresh and also had a great taste. Our new favorite in Santa Fe!
