This is a local's restaurant, with fast-food style service and providing excellent food. Carne Adovada and vegetable tacos seem to be favorites. Beef here is shredded, not ground. Good stuff, highly recommended. Don't go for the atmosphere.

When you get tired of the green chile and the heavy NM food and need a good "city fix" with good service drive on out to Tesuque (5 minutes outside Santa Fe) and have a drink and appetizers or a fabulous dinner at the new Auberge Resort, Encantado. Great food, amazing sunset view, excellent service and a fabulous resort overall. Chic Santa Fe style.
Favorite Dish: It is all good but the bass with the huitacolche sauce and mini tamales was amazing as well as the fresh herb ravioli appetizers. In the bar the ceviche appetizer is outstanding and more sushi than ceviche. Great cosmos.

For a surprisingly inexpensive breakfast, lunch or dinner try the cafeteria at St. Vincent's Hospital
I have noticed many RV snowbirds chowing down. Lots of free parking.
Favorite Dish: Daily entre US$2.39 (spaghetti with marinara sauce to US$4.39 (cod veracruz) and many choices in between.

The restaurant is comfortable and more expensive than eating in the bar which is also cozy with TVs if you like sports. It is possible to have a meal under $10US in the bar. More like $15 to $30 in the restaurant. Full liquor license, beer and limited wine selection.
Favorite Dish: Tasty food. Try any of the appetizers with a spinach salad. Beef chupadero $4.95US Veggie Quesadilla $6.50US Roast beef burrito with green chile, yum. Enough for two!
And Raspberry Pie to die for!

Great food, wonderful service in a small intimate restaurant. Perfect for dinner after a visit to the Georgia O'Keeffe Museum next door.
Favorite Dish: The tasting menu offers a wonderful variety and matching of food and wines with a five course meal.

Inside a mall of antiques and furniture dealers, Cleopatra's has tables out in the mall. The cook and the food are authentic and delicious. Prices are good.
Favorite Dish: Cous-cous or dolmas or spanakopita. The George plate is good, but so is the King Tut. I've never had anything I didn't like there.

The food was excellent, beautifully prepared and perfect. The service was terrible. No one was checking to refill water glasses, or available if you wanted to request a knife or a napkin.
The surroundings look beautiful but they are cold. No music and we were there just pre- Christmas Eve. They first wanted to set us at a table in the middle of a space that did not feel comfortable. Then, when we said we wanted something else, they set us by the COLD windows. No fire was kept in the big beehive fireplace on this cold night. Not cheery.
Favorite Dish: All the dishes we had at our table were good. Duck, lamb, vegetarian, soups and salad.

New but already with an enthusiastic local following. Healthy food, lots of vegetarian and vegan choices but also meat, eggs and dairy items. I believe they are part of the Farm to Table project, so they are buying at least a portion of their produce, meat, eggs, locally.
A number of raw items on the menu.
It's a spa, with classes and talks as well as a store with expensive, trendy clothing, home accessories and feng shui type items as well as the restaurant.
Favorite Dish: Everything that everyone at our table had, was good. Collard greens burrito, stir fry with marinated tofu, green chile quiche. We had a tip that the raw lasagne is really great, but it is on the pricier end of the menu and we were there for a light lunch, so, another time!

Hopping....Great French Onion soup ($5.50). Right off the Plaza in La Fonda Hotel and near the Cathedral. Very touristy and busy but fun for locals occassionally, if you care to venture down into the Plaza.
Favorite Dish: The Finbar. From Portland.

Posa's makes great tamales, Frito pies and burritos. When I have out of town guests, especially people who have moved away from the Southwest, they appreciate the good food and I appreciate the easy meal to carry out and eat at home with our own cold beer or lemonade. They have 2 restaurants where you can pick up or eat in but the eat in is sort of cold and not comfortable.
The food is dependable, the prices are reasonable and there is something for everyone, from spicy to mild.
Favorite Dish: Basic pork and red chile tamales with sides of beans, rice and posole.
They also have menudo but they put red chile in it and I prefer the clean classic variety we had in Tucson, served with wedges of lemon and red chile sauce and bolillos on the side.
