Some folks go nuts over this "New Mex-Tex" Cuisine. I ordered fish tacos here. They weren't horrible.

I have been here many times and it is the only place that I can get New Mexican food. They have great green chili stew and stuffed indian fry bread. Everyone should try this place. Lots of flavors and great staff

If you are tired of the same Tex-Mex food, Santa Fe flats is the place to go for authentic Santa Fe Mexico type food. They have different heat levels of sauces and salsas. The food is fresh and comes out piping hot. Drinks are not watered down. Their carnitas are exceptional. They have lots of menu items, including Tex-Mex for... More

This restaurant specializes in a New Mexican flavor of Tex-Mex cuisine so it is somewhat different in its style and taste from other restaurants which offers some of the same dishes. The chimichangas are outstanding. This is a good restaurant which must compete against many other restaurants offering the same sort of meals.. The service was really good. There is... More

My son and I ate dinner here today August 1st 2016 and enjoyed the $6 chimichangas meal deal on Mondays. The food was outstanding and the service was also really great. Sara, our waitress, was always there to take care of refills and anything that we might need. (SEE PHOTOS)

I took a client to eat here at his suggestion. It was overall pretty good. Service was a little slow for a business time meal but not too bad. Server was friendly and the food was good. I had the Flat Red Enchilada and it was good.
