If you are craving some comfort food, this is the place. But, it's more than that with wonderful Greek dishes and fabulous desserts. I don't get here often since it's on the other side of town. But, it's worth going to.

My first meal in Santa Fe had to be some enchiladas. I had one with green chile sauce and one with red chile sauce, both of which were tasty and the right amount of spicy. The rice and beans were good accompaniments. The prickly pear...More
