Great food , green salsa a little on the spicy side but great flavor, portions are big , service is a little slow when they're busy which they do get busy with lots of locals (good sign) . Nice people and great New Mexican food!

Good choice when you cannot get in to Tomasitas or The Shedd...the same owner of Tomasitas...the food is great and if you don't eat NM food, they have a good Greek Salad. Unassuming location in De Vargas Shopping Center. They catered our New Year's Eve as well...great feedback on the food...we picked it up and served it later in the... More

We were tipped off to Atrisco by our hotel staff. It is in a modern shopping center but history on the wall would indicate it's a family place that's been around a long time. We had traditional Mexican the first night ... in Santa Fe, that means green chilis. Not at all your typical tex-mex; very authentic including sides of... More

My wife and I drive from our northern little New Mexico town to Santa Fe weekly to buy various things we can't get locally. We stopped here for lunch as a former occupant of this space was a family favorite until it closed some time back. I ordered the green chile cheeseburger with French fries and was nothing short of...

This is the sister restaurant to Tomasita’s which ALWAYS has a line to get in – that can even pull off a Manhattan in the land of Margaritas. I ordered a Manhattan in honor of my departed mother. I had the chili rellanos, my sister the roast leg of lamb burrito. LOTS of food for the money.

New Mexico loves its' chile and there is no shortage here. I had the Christmas Chile Relleno Plate. Christmas refers to having both green and red chile smothered all over you entrée. The rellenos were crisp and the chile had an excellent taste. Their sopapillas are good and their guacamole was good. The house made corn and blue corn tortilla... More

I've been here twice and both times were for lunch. The New Mexican food is really good for a fair price. Good margaritas and beer selection. They even offer lamb.

There's nothing foofy or super creative about Atrisco, which is generally a plus in Santa Fe. Usually, local attempts to do something special turn out to be a disaster. But for both locals and visitors, a chance for some solid New Mexican Spanish food done right is nothing to sniff at. Atrisco is in a mall, with all the usual... More

When we visit from Denver, we always go to our tried and true restaurants, but this time wanted to branch out. Looked at this place on TA and Yelp, and decided on it. Easy parking in a big mall lot, good size restaurant, nicely decorated, busy but seated immediately around 6 pm on a Sat night. We always use blue... More

The place is well located next to other shops and with a big parking lot Food was very good and local: the veggie-filled sapatilla were tasty and in a correct quantity (usually portions are massive) Their tropical green ice tea (although simply green tea) was good as well
