From Big Sky to Livingston, Santa Fe Red's is the only authentic "down home" traditional Mexican styled menu with a myriad of selections that in America we might call "comfort food." Different Regions of Mexico provide different style's of food. Santa Fe Red has a more "Mexico City" vibe with rich hearty sauces you might better relate to the Mediterranean. With this, I highly suggest going true New Mexican Style with any one of their hearty enchilada sauces, add a fried egg and large guacamole to any "wet" burrito, chimichanga or enchilada. The bar prices are aggressively cheap at Santa Fe Red's, so don't miss the Half Price Ladies Night on Thursday's or the All day and night happy hour on Friday & Saturday. The service is good, but the restaurant can get pounded...true sign of great food. With that, at times be understanding! But to be honest, in my 20 years of professional restaurant experience, even at its busiest I have seen Red's beat service times at most big city restaurants at a price you can't beat. I suggest an "Original Margarita" poured with Don Julio Blanco or my staple locally is a "Cold Smoke Draft" by Kettle House Brewery in Missoula. Try both Santa Fe Red's locations in Bozeman for different presentations to authentic Mexican food and fun!

Casa Sanchez is in a nice little house just behind MSU. I had heard this was the best mexican food in Bozeman from a friend. I got there around 6pm on a Saturday night, and maybe three other tables were occupied. It took them about 10min just to bring the menus, drinks and chips and salsa. I was about to go up and ask for a waitress. I ordered a tostada, chicken enchilada, rice and beans. You get alot of food, thats for sure. Everything tasted good, but didn't have much spice or flavor. My meal cost $17.00! I thought it was overpriced, especially when you can get the same thing for half price at other mexican restaurants. The other bad thing was service. It was very slow. I probably won't be back, because of the prices and service.
From the outside the it doesn't look like a place you would want to go to. However, the inside is really nice and festive looking with all of the mexican decor. I ordered a chicken enchilada, beef tamale, rice & beans. They make their tamales fresh everyday, and oh my god they are sooo good and fluffy! The rice & beans had a great flavor and the chicken enchilada was awesome too. Service was great, and the restrooms were clean. This is the best mexican restaurant in Bozeman, MT! I highly recommend it.
