It's carry out only, but the quality of the food is excellent! Tacos are scrumptious! Also have drive thru - but call your order in.

this place is a local gem. The service is fast and accurate plus, the salsa is really the best in Santa Fe. It is hot and goes well for Taco Tuesday. Inexpensive. Njoy.

Excellent food - freshly made, well seasoned and generous quantity! The daily specials are a always a good choice, but then so is everything on the menu! Staff are friendly and service is great.

We almost passed by this place but we're very glad we didn't. El Parasol has great burgers for a good value. The breakfast burritos were also some of the best I've had in recent memory. We will definitely be back.

Definitely a locals take out spot as we watch many stroll in, pick up orders, then hit the road. Staff friendly and patient as "tourists" (us) made our menu selections. The tacos are outstanding (chicken, ground beef, and shredded beef!). But WARNING, watch out for...More
