We visited here as part of a food tour. Had a great meal and enjoyed talking to the owner and learning about the restaurant history. Comfortable, welcoming interior; friendly staff. Will try to get back again next visit to Santa Fe!

OK, that's actually the tag line for Los Dos Molinos in Phoenix, but La Choza reminds me of that place a lot from a food perspective. Great green chile, good red chile, somewhat sloppy New Mexican food. Absolutely delicious - but HOT! Service was incredibly...More
