This Historic New Mexico Train Depot Is Now A Beautiful Restaurant Right On The Tracks
What happens when you combine New Mexico’s rich history with its mouthwatering food and its railway system? You get an iconic restaurant that has served incredible plates of New Mexico-style cuisine for more than 40 years.
That location is Tomasita's, a Santa Fe staple for decades.
The restaurant got its start in 1974 when it began serving food in a little cafe on Hickox Street.
A few years later, the restaurant moved into its present location inside a 100-year-old train depot.
This station was the starting point for the Chili Line's 125-mile journey from Santa Fe into Antonito, Colorado.
Officially known as the Guadalupe Station of the Santa Fe Branch, it transported food, lumber, and other goods between the two states. The station was built in 1904 and operated until the railroad ended operations in 1941.
Tomasita's moved into the station in 1979 and has been in the same location since.
Start your meal with a mixture of yellow and blue corn chips, salsa, and guacamole.
For those with an appetite, try the stuffed sopaipillas or burrito grande smothered in red or green chile.
Or grab a taco plate, which comes with beans, rice, or posole.
Or the enchiladas, also served with beans, rice, or posole.
Don't forget to sip on a margarita while you're here!
The restaurant is part of the Santa Fe margarita trail.
Tomasita's is located in the Railyard on Guadalupe Street in Santa Fe.
The restaurant is open Monday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., and Friday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. It is closed on Sundays. For details about the menu, live music, special events, and more, visit its website or
