Though the food here is consistently among the best available on the south side of Santa Fe, my best bet is to hit them up on "Turkey Tuesday." The smoked turkey is absolutely delicious. I wish they would have it every day!

Best choice for Santa Fe if you want barbecue. Their barbecue salad with brisket or pulled pork is terrific. Friendly wait staff, good interesting specialty drinks, nice atmosphere make for a great meal.

Excellent bar food for happy hour. We split the 2 chile cheese burgers and the large salad. Stacy was a fabulous waitperson.

I didn't taste anything exceptional here. First the water has a very bad flavor. Second the barbecue sauce is not great. The price is in line with most barbecue restaurants The staff is nice and very quick to get your food out.
