ATRISCO CAFE AND BAR – DeVargas Center – 193 Paseo de Peralta – Santa Fe, NM
This is a colorful family-operated cafe serving hefty portions of homestyle New Mexican eats, plus a full bar.  They specialize in  local fresh foods, featuring the best in red and green chile, New Mexican grass fed ground beef, and  local lamb.  We had tamales, beef enchiladas, a taco, and a chicken enchilada.  We tried both the red and green chili sauces, and finished with sopaipillas drizzled with honey.  Everything was delicious.  It’s no wonder this is a favorite among locals.  Oh yes – the Margaritas were excellent as well.
Note:  I spilled my Margarita.  The waiter immediately came over, cleaned the table and floor, and replaced my Margarita – all with a smile.
