My husband and I went on a two week road trip for our honeymoon from Arkansas to Montana. Santa Fe/ Santa Rosa was our first stop and this was our first meal of the honeymoon. I guess we made a mistake by asking for sweet tea to drink? The waitress rudely huffed that they did not serve sweet tea. Okay....moving... More

Ordered the taco salad with two of their specially sides: papitas and posole. Potatoes were not even cooked all the way through. Hominy also wasn't cooked all the way. Should have stuck with the American menu I think. Service was great, though!

On a road trip from Cleveland to L.A., this was the best supper so far. Great service, lively atmosphere, and fantastic food. The special tonight (1/6/17) was Enchiladas de Santa Fe and the green chile sauce was perfect. Charros and posole were tasty, local beer was good, waitress was terrific.

We stopped in on New Year's Eve and had a bit of a wait. While this may be the worst managed restaurant I've visited, the food was really very good. They seemed over whelmed by the number of people. Nice varied menu specializing in NM food, but they also served basic American food. I tried the enchiladas while wiser had... More

I ordered two tamales and it came with hominy and beans. Good service and lots of food if that's what you're after. Couldn't eat all my food.

I was hesitant to go here becauseof the reviews I read. But we got into town at 8:45 and most places close at 9:00. Since Silver Moon is open until 10, we decided to give it a shot. Y'all. This place was fabulous. Some of the best food I've had in a long time. Our waiter was friendly & helpful... More

Bad weather forced us to overnite in Santa Rosa and this cafe was really close to our motel. Arrived about 5pm and were promptly seated with restaurant about half-full. Within 20 minutes the place was packed and a line was forming. Service was a bit slow because there was only one server but 2 more arrived a little later. I... More

Not a good place to eat. Waitress was rude. The food was not very good and the prices were too high. Just a rip off place for travelers.

After driving all day with a toddler it's easy just to go to the closest restaurant to the hotel for a bite to eat. Big mistake. Fairly busy when we walked in about 6:15. Took over ten minutes for the waitress to acknowledge us, another 5 to come back for our drink order and by that time food order as... More

We stopped at this restaurant as we were staying at the Quality Inn, within walking distance. The service was horrible. The staff were young and do NOT have any skills in customer service. We ordered water with lemon and had to ask the waitress when she FINALLY came back to bring us the lemon. My husband ordered the hamburger and... More
