Not many places in Santa Fe are crowded at 4 in the afternoon, but Del Charro, the self-described saloon at the Inn of the Governors, is often one of them. Hotel restaurants, when they’re not stuffy or swanky, can be dismal, deserted places where only the desperate eat. Del Charro, though, is the sort of spot you hope for when you roll into a new town — a place that’s warm and friendly and popular with locals.

If you’re one of those locals, it’s an easy, no-frills spot to grab a drink or some acceptable food at lunch or after work. You might, as I did recently, see a long-lost old friend sitting in one of the red leather-upholstered chairs at the handsome wood-and-brick-backed bar. The roomy captain’s chairs and breezes blowing in through the wide street-side windows encourage you to linger, and in the winter, you won’t want to leave if you nab a seat in one of the tall leather wingbacks by the fireplace.
