It is worth the wait, though better to have an advance reservation or arrive very early (4:30 or 5:00). Food is excellent, service friendly and not hurried. No place better in Santa Fe for genuine Northern New Mexican food.

We enjoyed a late lunch here. The food was really good. We checked the reviews and this place didn't disappoint. The guacamole tasted great. I enjoyed a chicken chalupa and my niece had pork enchiladas.
