Reservations Recommended

Start off with Chile verde con papas, Green chile chicken corn chowder, Gazpacho, Fresh mushroom soup, Cold red raspberry soup or try our House Guacamole, Salsa & Chips.

All of our traditional entrees are served with Blue Corn Tortillas. All of our chile is grown on farms in Hatch, NM exclusively for The Shed. We process chile daily in our own mill in order to capture the flavor and freshness of the chile. One of the favorties for generations of patrons is our #4 Red Chile Enchilada Plate topped with a fried egg. Our Green Chile Chicken Enchiladas reveal the smoky pungent flavor of green chile. For the very spicy palate try our Carne Adovada or Pollo Adobo plate.

You might be suprised to find that a restaurant known for tradtional Northern New Mexican cuisine serves french garlic bread with all its entrees reflecting a taste of history patrons have demanded since the beginnings of The Shed on Burro Alley.

For those unaccustomed to eating chile, ours is spicy!

The Shed, a dining institution since 1953 is located on Palace Avenue just east of the plaza. Look for the small, vividly colored wooden sign that marks the entrance. The restaurant occupies nine quiet rooms behind Prince Patio, a sunny brick and flagstone courtyard shaded by trumpet vines and adorned with roses in the summer. Customers can downshift a couple of centuries and have one of the more satisfying experiences Santa Fe has to offer...

We offer locals and visitors alike a time tested taste of the best that Northern New Mexico has to offer both in cuisine and hospitality. We are a family owned and operated business now under the management of the 3rd generation of Carswells. Visitors and locals returning to Santa Fe don't feel like they have arrived in Santa Fe until they have tasted the Shed chile once again.
