  • Best Value: "If you're staying downtown and want a restaurant in walking distance with good-sized portions and reasonable pricing head for The Plaza. Santa Feans have been doing just that for over a century."
  • Homestyle: "For an interesting twist, turn any of the comfort foods on the menu into a New Mexican treat. Instead of the traditional gravy or sauce, ask to have the dish smothered in red or green chile and have rice and beans on the side."
  • Breakfast: "Ask your server about the "secret menu"; locals know about it and now you do, too. Made up of favorites no longer on the menu that loyal customers still want, like the chicken fried steak, New Mexican-style, which comes with red and green chile."
  • Recommended as Best Value Because: The Plaza is a long-standing tradition in Santa Fe. Couple that with ample portions and reasonable pricing; it's a must for the list.
  • Best for Homestyle Because: The Plaza is a long-standing tradition in Santa Fe. Couple that with extensive comfort food offerings and it's a must for the list.
  • Best for Breakfast Because: Breakfast at the Plaza Café is a Santa Fe tradition. The Razatos family has been feeding hungry Santa Feans for over 60 years.
