I've been to this restaurant many times. I won't likely rush back. While i love their complementary sopapias, the main course was less than exciting. Tex-mex on a hot plate. Not so special. We were there for lunch and were seated in the bar. Maybe...More

Having lived in New Mexico, have become a bit of a Mexican food snob, but Gazpacho's met all high standards. The salsa was spicy and the burrito was smothered in rich, tasty, red and green chile. Our servers were attentive and friendly, which made our...More

Great Nachos, great margaritas, great drinks. We even went back another night for another round of margaritas. The "El Bandito" is the best

Hard to find with goofy map apps and one way streets. "Cool" locals hanging out on patio were not inviting. I was so excited about red and green chili and sopapillas but, it was disappointing. Huge doughy puffs, not crispy fried puffs, kind of little,...More
