very interesting, good food- yes, we had the grasshoppers, with mole and avocado, also 4 other choices, best being the shrimp enchilada and the "corn fungus truffle"- shared amongst 5 diners. excellent setting for socializing, fantastic service- dishes were brought divided up for the 5 of us, and the staff enthusiastically and accurately explained and recommended the various offerings. dinner for 5, including wine and a huge shared dessert came to about $90.
As a local I highly recommend this restaurant because it's my favorite spot, full of friendly people and scrumptious dishes! The old world atmosphere is delightful. When I dine here I feel like I've entered a quaint restaurant in Oaxaca. You'll leave here smiling! PS. the 1st entry about meat? I'll double check the menu to see if fajitas are on the menu...I agree with the point that possibly you've got the wrong restaurant?
During our vacation to Santa Fe, we are from Minnesota, we learned the owners of Bert's Burger Bowl, which we ate at almost everyday(fantastic burritos, green chili burgers and coffee)were also owners of Bert's la Taqueria. La Taqueria is an upscale restaraunt with southwestern food to die for! We had so many dishes I cannot pronounce most of them but the Black Angus steak we had was the most unbelievable peice of meat I have ever had!The building has tons of South West ambience which I believe is an old convent. This is a must place to dine!

I tried Bert's with my family for lunch on 12/27/2008. Since our last visit in the summer of 2008 they have lost it. The service was very slow. The portions were much smaller. Three other parties left while waiting to be served. We should have also. The food has also deteriorated. Only two kinds of salsa (bland) rather than four. Give them a miss until someone reports that they have recovered their composure.
