Castro's

3904 Rodeo Rd.
Santa Fe , NM , United States
(505) 438-0146

Easy to overlook in a strip mall on Cerrillos Road, Cafe Castro's is frequented by locals for their simple New Mexican food. The cafe is decorated in the usual Santa Fe style: terra cotta floors, thick vigas, and Mexican art, including Dia De Los Muertos paintings. The sopaipillas are the most popular dish -- fluffy fried tortillas filled with beef or served as dessert with honey. Another menu staple is the triple enchilada; one cheese, one chicken, and one beef enchilada topped with red and green chile sauce and a fried egg and served with a side of beans and rice.
