Being a local....I had my doubts about the new restaurant that opened up at the Palace. I really liked the previous "New Palace' and thought they had a great thing going on and was disappointed to hear that it was closing.
Well they (The guys from Geronimo and Swig) have done it again! This new place called Senor Lucky's is GREAT!! Just what Santa Fe needs!! They revamped the place, sort of Cowboy Cowhide Chic decor.
We had lunch outside on the patio (Out back) they also have a chairs and tables out front but not sure if they will ever use that area for dining.
The patio is beautiful with lots of color, unbrellas and a very nice outside bar. I know this place with do well with the local drinkers too.
We both had Burgers with grilled jalapenos (different from the typical greenchile chesseburger that is so popular 'round these parts) in fact this burger was so good, that it is now my favorite burger in all of Santa Fe!! Comes with grilled jalapeno' and crunchy homemade fries with jalapeno ketchup. $9.00. Great professional service with attractive waitstaff. We are looking forward to having dinner there!!
