The margaritas here are very good with a recommendation on menu to have no more than two! We weren't very hungry so I had the soup and my husband had quesadillas. The soup was warm so I sent it back for hot soup. The quesadillas were average. We sat in the bar area which was comfortable. The memory is the... More

I want to start by saying that I am of Mexican decent and my family had a Mexican restaurant in Southern California when I was young. I am always hesitant to visit mexican restaurants. But these guys are the real deal. The only thing I didn't care for was the pre-made margaritas. I would stick with a beer or wine.... More

I ate here years ago, it was OK then, I think better now. Great sopaipillas and tasty red and green chile. My taco and enchilada came with posole and rice and beans, a very nice New Mexico traditional meal. I think they have modernized the recipes somewhat without losing the essential character The place was busy and seemed to be... More

Tried to eat and drink here on the recommendation of many locals but it was way too busy. Could barely walk through the front door and navigate to the bar area - which is very small. Decided not to wait an hour for a table as we couldn't even get a drink after standing behind all the other patrons seated... More

Really just for tourists. Parking is very difficult. High prices and ordinary food. Locals go to other restaurants.

OMGosh!! This was some of the best food I have ever eaten. Green/Red chile is my new fav! The culture is definitely different in New Mexico and it was apparent when the waiter didn't ever refill my soda. That is usually a deal breaker but just watching everyone mosey around at a slow pace made me realize I should have... More

The food is spicy and delicious. We tried a variety ranging from enchiladas to tamales with everything with the time. Service was timely without being intrusive. Relaxed atmosphere in an older location. Even has solar power to recharge your electric vehicle. We would definitely revisit for a meal.

Some of the best Mexican food in Santa Fe. Outstanding service and food. Highly recommend you eat here. If you arrive after 6:00 pm for dinner, expect to wait. A very popular place.

We were staying at the Old Santa Fe Inn, and Tomasita's is only a two and a half block walk, though we drove due to it being night and us being tired. The food and service at the restaurant were excellent. The food includes all the normal southwest Mexican choices, including good quality red and green chili. We have visited... More

We were looking forward to some great Mexican food on our first night in Santa Fe, instead we were seated at the dreaded "Invisible table". You know the one that all the wait staff walks by because no one knows it's their table. We finally managed to order, the food itself was very good, the salsa was a little too... More

Description
Tomasita's restaurant is a Santa Fe tradition serving classic Northern New Mexican cuisine. Stop by today for an unforgettable meal! Locally owned and operated in Santa Fe, NM, we take great pride in our high quality food, friendly and fast service, and of course our famous margaritas! Locals have consistently voted us as the premier restaurant for Best Red Chile, Best Green Chile, Best Margaritas, and Best New Mexican Restaurant! Our chiles are out of this world and you won't regret ordering either - or both! Tomasita's is a distinctly Northern New Mexican restaurant. Our recipes have been handed down for generation and serve as a reminder of the melding of cultures that together once depended on the corn, chile, beans, and fruit of the area. Since 1974, the Maryol/Gundrey family has maintained a commitment to the recipes and ingredients of New Mexico. Join us for lunch, dinner, or happy hour and try our traditional recipes with amazing flavor. Don't forget to top off your meal with a homemade dessert - sopapillas anyone
