I've been eating here for over 12 years, all the way back to when it was Diego's and run by the current owner's aunt. It was good then, and it's still good now. I've eaten probably everything on the menu, but am particularly fond of the chicken and beef chalupas (two of them will satisfy anyone's hunger). The enchiladas are... More

Recommended by our hotel clerk. Really fresh, tasty food. Great presentation with great service. Very busy Café. Nice selection of food. Great southwest flavors in every bite. Will go back next time in Santa Fe.

We were recommended to this place from our Inn who said the food was really good and much better than some well named places. He was right. A good local southwestern place with plenty of food choices, great prices, huge portions and a bar. There were plenty of locals here.

We went here for dinner our first night in Santa Fe at the recommendation of the front desk... a place locals would go. It was a little walk to a small mini-mall. We had a wait but sat at the bar and talked with some locals. The margaritas are fantastic and there's a nice selection; friendly bartender too. Once we... More

Popular with locals at the bar and in the dinning room. The daily specials are huge bargain. Service is spot on.

Steak and eggs for breakfast, yes please. Even my sister enjoyed her Mexican food, she doesn't do spicy. Too full to try the sopapillas. Service was very attentive.

This restaurant is always packed at lunch time. It is a favorite hangout for locals while they shop at the DeVargas Mall. Generally it supports a mostly traditional Southwestern menu, it also offers a greek salad and a full bar for afternoon cocktails. Their margaritas are very good. The sopapillas are made with whole wheat flour and they offer a... More

Great NM style food in a town with many. In the local mall, De Vargas. Green child is my favorite in town. Family run. Price performer for SF. Walk off your meal in the mall.

I thought the food was good, reasonably priced and they serve a great margarita! And you can actually park there, unlike anything around the square.

I, too, had the green chile cheeseburger with the home style fries. A very large handful to eat but worth effort. The service is really good considering how crowded it gets. I highly recommend the place.
