Description: The Atrisco Cafe & Bar is a friendly, neighborhood New Mexican restaurant. Our philosophy is simple recipes, fresh ingredients, and friendly service. We cater to the tastes of Santa Feans who love authentic New Mexican chile, but also offer a small but carefully crafted selection of American dishes such as burgers with house-cut fries, Southwest Chicken Salad, and Meat Loaf. When possible, we purchase New Mexico grown ingredients, including all-natural grass-fed ground beef, lamb, red and green chile, honey, and vegetables when in season.

Ate there yesterday and it was very busy on a Friday afternoon. Good sign. Waited 20 minutes. The food was very good but not best in class for New Mexican and I found the menu a bit limited. My wife had the Atris Combo​, I had the Rio Grande combo plate; both combos that came with a taco. The Atris Combo came with a Relleno and it was kind of soggy but OK otherwise. Mine came with Chicken Enchilada which while good it can't compare to Red Enchilada down off Cerrillos (yes, it isn't much to look at but the food is much better). Posole is always nice to have but I found this version a bit lacking in flavor. Sopaipilla's came with both, not greasy but not real fluffy. Red chili was very good with nice heat, green was bland. Service was good and the kitchen served is quickly. I suspect a lot of people come for the full bar and the bar was packed. And the food is good. Maybe for this location in town, the best but if you're into better NM food, La Choza, Red Enchilada, Los Amigos (if they ever reopen) and even Pecos Trail Café more unusual Mexican (not necessarily New Mexican) Los Portillos is IMHO, better.

Red chile sauce is great. Hot and flavorful. All the food was fresh. Not a fancy restaurant but the food is the highlight.

This place was recommended by our WorldMark staff. It is in a shopping center on Guadalupe where there is an Albertsons, Sprouts and CVS. The place was packed on Tuesday night. We ordered a liter of house margaritas which was very good. Our appetizer was the grand nachos, delicious. For dinner we each had the $13.50 chicken fajitas. They came with loaded sides, salsa, guacamole, sour cream and beans. Enough forn3 fajitas each but I could only eat one. Also included were sopapilas and how new. Absolutely delicious!! Brenda was our server and she also was attentive, friendly and great!

Nothing special but fairly consistent food and service. The chicken Enchiladas are very good. The sopapillas are fantastic.
