La Choza Restaurant Review

: La Choza, the sister restaurant of The Shed (a bustling, touristy locale), is the locals' destination for good New Mexican eats off the beaten path. Located on the south side of the Railyard, the restaurant serves up just about every area specialty with flair, from chiles rellenos to Frito pie. The green chile chicken enchiladas are head-spinningly good --- arguably some of the best in the city. They are served with pinto beans, posole, lettuce and tomatoes, crowned with fiery red or green chile (or both), and are best washed down with an on-tap Santa Fe Pale Ale or Dos Equis. After eating, take a stroll through the Railyard Park to walk off your hearty meal.

Not what I had hoped

Great decor and a friendly staff eager to please. My fiancee ordered a sangria which was decent, but what she really liked was the fish tacos. I ordered the chile rellenos and I must say once I got a plate with food that was hot food and flavors were spot on!! The salsa was pretty good. Nice and spicy, great texture, and not too much (if any) of the typical salsa mix-ins like cilantro, onions, garlic, etc.
For an appetizer we ordered chips with salsa & queso. The chips didn't seem fresh.
My plate arrived hot, but all the food on it was cold. When I told the waiter, he said "yeah that happens sometimes, because they rush it through the oven. I'll have them make it again". He was apologetic.
