We've eaten lunch at Casto's many times, and never been disappointed. The staff is professional and attentive, and always able to meet our gluten free needs. Great rolled enchiladas.

We've found our new favorite New Mexican/Mexican restaurant: Cafe Castro. The only problem is that it's six hours from our house so we'll only be able to eat there when we visit Santa Fe again – and we definitely will. We liked it so much...More
