We did takeout while visiting Santa Fe. Kudos to Pasqual's for doing takeout. It made our life much easier.
This restaurant is all organic from what we could see on the menu. That can jack up the price. Be prepared. “Garden” Echiladas= $24…for enchiladas (even with a toasted banana). That being said, they were tasty – but spicy for a Gringo’s taste (DW’s opinion). For a seasoned mexi-food eater, I would say they were ‘moderately spicey’ but not ‘hot’. The flavor was OK…even ‘good’. I would not call them “outstanding”.
The Chile Relleno was tasty. Not spicy at all. This is my golden standard for mexi-food restaurants. Pasqual’s did not fail the test, but they were nowhere near the top.
They also included bread and butter which helped moderate the spice a bit. This was a little strange in a mexi-meal, but welcome in our case.
One last note: Pasqual’s has posted a “No Guns Allowed” sign squarely in the front door. In NM, this has the force of law. If you have a concealed handgun license (or are from a state with reciprocity) and are carrying, Pasqual’s does not want your business. They would prefer only criminals carry in their establishment. Plan accordingly and choose from one of the many other similar restaurants in the area.
If this policy changes, I will revisit and post an updated review. For now, I won’t be back. And there’s a good chance that over four million NRA members will also not patronize Café Pasqual’s when visiting Santa Fe, New Mexico.
