The place is small and unassuming, but the food is well worth the trip. I ordered the Enchilada Plate and it was delicious. the red and green chili sauce was top notch. The prices were reasonable as well...I'm already planning my next visit here...Awesome food for sure!

Unassuming décor inside and out, parking can be tricky. The food is where it's at however. Food of El Salvador with Guatemalan and Mexican influence, they even have "American" favorite such as a burger. The egg Tortas and the Shrimp special are our favorites. Prices are very reasonable.

We went to the Red Enchilada on a tip from a local. It was fantastic. We both had enchiladas and they were to die for! I will try to make it to the Red Enchilada any time I am back in Santa Fe.

I've never had a bad meal here. Stopped the other morning for a breakfast burrito smothered in some of the best green chili in town. Food quality is consistent good and service is fast and friendly. Prices are reasonable too. More of a "locals" place. If you are visiting from out of town and looking for a good place to... More

This modest Salvadoran restaurant makes excellent food, particularly breakfasts. The service is only average but we always leave happy.

The prices may be reasonable but the food is nothing special. There are better places to eat in Santa Fe.

The lunch was good, not great but a good value. Give it a try, I had the burrito with green. Tasty green but could have been hotter.

Friends told us the difference between New Mexican food and Mexican food is the chilis'- go to Red Enchilada if you want to try real New Mexican food for a good price. Which is hotter? Red chili's or green? Well, the heat is how they are grown, let water more heat so ask for the level of heat you want.... More
