Santa Fe Taqueria in Nob Hill

831 NW 23rd AVE Portland, Oregon

Monday – Sunday 11AM–Midnight or later



If you’re looking for authentic Mexican cuisine in a kid friendly space, look no further than Santa Fe Taqueria.  The staff are incredibly kind, the food is delicious, and the location is prime. Right in Nob Hill, just outside of Forest Park, this restaurant has something for everyone.  If you’re with the kids, sit in the dining room area with colorful, muraled walls and bright, big windows. If you’ve left the kids with a sitter, sit in the dimly lit bar area with a cool vibe.  Enjoy this cuisine inspired by the town of Puebla, Mexico in the comfort of your own home as well! They offer to-go and delivery as well. The wet burritos, nachos, and salsa are some of the best I’ve had and I felt like I was best friends with the chef by the time I left.  The customer service alone should give you every reason to check this place out, and what kid doesn’t love rice, beans, and cheese! Head across the street to Salt and Straw for some ice cream post lunch or dinner!

Emily Coleman is a Jersey girl born and raised who caught the outdoor bug upon moving to Vermont to pursue a degree in Adventure Education and Environmental Studies from Green Mountain College. She spent most of her years before college deeply entrenched in the world of competitive cheerleading before discovering a passion for outdoor sports including mountain biking, white water kayaking, bikepacking, backpacking, slacklining, rock climbing, and skiing. Having been surrounded by children her entire life in her mother's daycare, she always had a strong affinity for kids. She moved to the mountains of Jackson Hole after graduating to coach for the local Kayak Club during the summers and nanny in the winters. Becoming a part of the Happy Active Family team felt like the perfect collision of her passion for building strong community bonds and encouraging an outdoor lifestyle.
