It's an interesting place is full of locals.. lousy parking ... and the food is just OK .. it's not fantastic . I guess one of our main problems with the place is always seems dirty .. The floors never seem to have been swept. Which makes you wonder what the kitchen looks like... the local bar crowds very lively... More

Enjoyed an early lunch that tasted anything but hurried. Wait staff was attentive and observant. Watching my tortilla being hand rolled and cooked then delivered to my table was as good as the tortilla. Would definitely recommend a stop in for a taste of New Mexico at it's best.

The margaritas are why I go here. The best and so many to choose from, you must make this a stop on your visit to Santa Fe

We made a reservation later in the evening (8) for New Year's Eve and did not run into the waiting for a seat issue that other reviewers mentioned. We had the green Chile meatballs for the appetizer. They were very good and the green Chile sauce was spicy and could overpower the flavor of the meatballs if you use to... More

Enjoyed a great NYE dinner at Maria's- the burrito and combination platter were both excellent- spicy and full of flavor! The surprise was the fluffy sopapilla- nothing like what we have at home in the South. Hoping our favorite local mexican restaurant can duplicate it for us! Not to be missed are the margaritas- all we tried were perfect! Tart,... More

My father has raved about this place for years, and made this our first "must-do" once we arrived in Santa Fe. We all ordered the green chili stew, and may I say, it was very unappetizing to look at. The broth was watery with bits of protein from over-cooked pork floating around in it. The seasoning was very bland --... More

I want to eat here for every meal during my trip just so I can try more of their margaritas... be warned, however, that they are not your typical syrupy sweet drinks. These are legit. I had the Turquoise Trail and the Ocean's 11. Both were amazing and strong. I had the stacked enchiladas Christmas style... they were good, not... More

There were six of us for dinner and because we had a reservation we only had to wait about 10 minutes to be seated. Walk in's had about one hour wait to be seated. As busy as this place is, the staff are amazing to help and get you seated as quick as possible.

We came here for the margaritas and will return for the food. Not that the margaritas weren't good, but the many pages to choose from were overwhelming! I got the house marg and it was good. My husband got a blue marg and it was tasty. We had the green chili meatballs for an appetizer and they were excellent! We... More
