I drove over an hour from out of town because I use to love Santiago's green chilli, but I was greatly disappointed. 😭 I was given cold burnt chilli cheese fries, so gross that we couldn't eat them. The chilli relleno was not battered, it had egg poured over it like a scrambled egg, also overcooked. The once delicious and spicy green chilli was not spicy, not what it use to be. The side of rice and beans was literally a tablespoon of each. The tortillas were cold and not wrapped in aluminum foil or anything. It was so sad and disappointing. The servers were nice to us, although one was very rude to an older gentleman about his order, another staff member came over and helped that situation though.
First time coming here and it didn’t disappoint. Staff were very welcoming even though we went an hour before closing time. Food was amazing. The sauce on top of the pork chop was delicious! I should’ve chosen hot instead of the mild 😅
Absolutely my favorite spot in Colorado for breakfast burritos. An old-time classic. I've been eating these things since I was just a little kid after soccer practice and swim meets. They still hit the spot. They are tiny enough that you could house two or even three if you're really motivated. They're always good and consistent. They always have great service. I love this place
We grew up on Santiago’s. So I know how good this place was and really still could be. But it’s like they don’t even care anymore. We were at the Castle Rock location this past week. This location has really struggled for quite a while. When we arrived we saw that an entire seating section was blocked off. Okay no big deal. So we chose a table on the side of the restaurant that was open along with everyone else. After the waitress noticed us sitting there a few minutes she came by and said “oh you guys need to order at the counter”. Uh okay. Do they not come take your order anymore at your table? So we went to the counter. We ordered what we wanted and at the end I added a crispy relleno on the side with no chili. He charged me for the entire relleno plate. Uhhhhh. So instead of making him take it off my card I told him to not worry about it. I should have made him take it off. We go sit back down. We then hear the waitress telling the guy at the counter that she blocked an entire section of tables so she doesn’t have to clean them the rest of night. It was 5:00 pm. Must be tough taking orders and wiping tables down when you’re a waitress. Food came out. Sooooo disappointed. Here’s a picture of the $11.50 relleno plate I didn’t want. It’s the size of a child’s meal. We actually laughed about it. Plus the cost of the other items I did want. Seriously…come on. Everything was off temperature…definitely not hot enough. Prayed we wouldn’t get sick. The cheese in the relleno was cold and still in it’s solid form. Oil used to fry the rellenos tasted rancid. Left most of the food on the plate. You know, I get some restaurants are struggling to find good employees. But where’s the owner in all of this? I’m sad for Santiago’s. Your green chili is the only thing keeping you float. We won’t be back.
This is my favorite go to for breakfast burritos and for burritos in general! They are just the right size and can be customized with mild, half and half or hot chili, smothered or chili inside. They offer other Mexican food favorites like tamales and enchiladas as well. I love this place and highly recommend!!
