Very good New Mexican dinner. Had yummy tamales, enchiladas with beans and posada. Really hit the spot. Easy to get to. It wasn't fast, but it was hot and fresh. Good trade off.

Too bizarre not to share. I had been riding all day, and my diabetes was acting up. Low blood sugar, and I was confused at the reading on my GPS. I wanted to make Santa Fe, but the GPS wasn't making sense. i pulled off the interstate, and into the first gas station I saw. I asked the lady behind... More

Friendly service. Small family owned restaurant which are always a favorite for us. I had the chicken fajitas which were skillet style and very good. The margarita was from a mix and was too sweet to drink. They were kind enough to take it off the bill without us saying anything about it.

The attached gift shop rang a bell but NOT anything on the menu. The Mexican food plate was double plated and the food very hot from the stove. Silver Moon Chile Rellenos are not what I am accustomed to so can't say if good or bad, but spicy, yes. You get posole in place of rice. Carefully read the menus... More

My husband and I ate here after a long day on the road. The hostess was friendly and happily cleaned a booth for us when we asked for that instead of a table. Waiter also was friendly, but busy, resulting in a little wait for the check. This is a fairly small diner with a surprisingly big menu, including a... More

This place doesn't look Mexican, but it was far more than I expected. The best hominy I ever had, the beens were great. Chilli rellanos were spicy but good. Under 10 bucks for the large plate of food plusses ur drink

...oh my, if you like it hot, stop here! Starting with the salsa, I had a feeling this was going to be good. They certainly werent shy about the heat and had a good flavor. Next, the test - simple cheese enchiladas with green chili. Wow!!! Probably the best I had on this trip. ....and do try the Alien beer.... More

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
