Santa Fe is located in a small strip mall and from outside you can't really tell much, except for the name and that's is a Mexican restaurant. However, looks can be deceiving.
Walk in and you'll be instantly greeted by a friendly smile and a very nicely decorated, warm and inviting and rather large and open area. On one hand it's open, but there are still booths that also make it very private at the same time.
Variety of Mexican art and color can be found all over the restaurant and relatively dim lighting create the atmosphere.
You might be greeted by Hector, the owner, or his sister Yvette or a number of other faces that are always courteous, friendly and efficient. It's always a pleasure to deal with anyone at Santa Fe.
And then there's food. And there's plenty of it - the menu is very varied and large with one of the largest selections of seafood I've ever seen in a Mexican restaurant. All of the dishes I've tried were great, literally. A lot of the dishes are similar to other Mexican places, but there are plenty of dishes that aren't. Yesterday I tried such a dish - Chipotle Chicken. Exceptional sauce, exceptional taste - highly recommend it!
Being a great restaurant that Santa Fe is - they do have a web site at http://www.SantaFe-MexicanGrill.com and offer online ordering for takeout via Takeout-Online.com.
On weekends they have special Mexican brunches. See their site for details and online ordering.
