I stayed in Santa Fe for four days and made a day trip to Taos and the Rio Grand River Gorge Bridge. I just had to try this highly rated place between these two attractions. I arrived around 1130 am on a Saturday and expected it to be very crowded. There were a few bikers seated in the patio outside, but I chose to sit at the bar inside. The bar stool was uncomfortable and the inside chairs looked just as uncomfortable as the patio chairs as well. This is not a place that invites one to stay for a while. However, all of the staff were extremely friendly. I was the only one seated inside until more bikers started to arrive. These are not outlaw bikers, but RUBs (Rich Urban Bikers).
I did my advance research on this place and chose to order Los Colores, which was three enchiladas with three different sauces and three different meats. The red chile with ground beef was the most pungent I had ever tasted and was not hot. The other two sauces of green chile and caribe(?) were hard to tell apart. The shredded pork was very tender, as well as the shredded chicken. Seasoning on these meats is minimal. This was also my only chance of getting to try posole and I liked it very much. The pinto beans were also very good. I chose a bottle of Zia Root Beer to wash it all down. The price was also about average when compared to the other four restaurants that I tried back in Santa Fe.
