Zia Diner is one of the best place to get traditional American comfort food in Santa Fe. Opened on New Year's Eve 1986, the original owners believed the city offered a market for 'retro comfort food done well.' They were right; the eatery is still going strong almost three decades later. Their Zia Famous Meatloaf adds the local green chile for an interesting twist. Corn, Green Chile and Asiago Pie combines corn, a food grown in New Mexico before the Spanish arrived, with a local staple green: chile. Comfort favorites on the menu include roast turkey with cornbread stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy and cranberry sauce as well a really retro dish, liver and onions. New Mexican comfort foods on offer include Blue Corn Chicken Enchiladas and Carne Adovada Plate. For dessert try the homemade Strawberry-Rhubarb Pie. The full bar offers a good selection of beers on tap.
- Homestyle: "Zia Diner only takes reservations for parties of six or more. But here's a well-kept secret: call ahead and get your name added to the wait list, it will magically go to the top of the list when you arrive."
- Best for Homestyle Because: Zia Diner offers one of the widest selections of comfort food in town, including American, New Mexican and even Italian favorites.
