The red-brick Santa Fe station house, constructed in 1904, houses Tomasita’s – “a distinctly Northern New Mexican restaurant.” Another place where the “locals” go, though we noticed many strangers. I had their Saturday special: Carnitas Antonio (nice name) with tender strips of beef marinated with onions and green chile with special sauce and the obligatory rice and refried beans. Tortilla soup here also worth a try. Oblige yourself with a Margarita while waiting for a table.

Service is extremely friendly, even to strangers.
