Since 1993, the Cowgirl has been serving up righteous barbecue, regional American cuisine, and a whole lot more at its Railyard location near downtown Santa Fe. The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Cowboys and Indians Magazine and Outside magazine have all raved about the Cowgirl restaurant offerings and recent features on Rachel Ray’s Forty Dollars a Day, and on the Heat Seekers TV show have added to the Cowgirl’s kudos. And of course, locals just love dining at the Cowgirl as evidenced by multiple years of Best of Santa Fe awards from the SF Reporter’s Readers’ Poll!

Best Local Caterer 2010, 2011

Chef Patrick Lambert has taken the catering department far beyond BBQ and American comfort food. His classical European and Asian-fusion credentials have expanded the Cowgirl’s repertoire to include almost whatever your heart desires. From intimate gatherings, to weddings, to large corporate events the Cowgirl has you covered. We also have great desserts available!

Santa Fe Convention Center Approved!


Nightly live entertainment is anchored by the best local bands; and with the added excitement of national touring musicians, you can’t go wrong at the Cowgirl. Our musical lineage includes performances by Townes Van Zandt, Patsy Montana, Magic Slim and the Teardrops, Ramblin’ Jack Elliot, Shawn Mullins, Joe West, Mary and Mars and many, many more.

Best nightlife in Santa Fe, New Mexico, live music and dancing.


Legendary margaritas, a dozen craft brews on tap, honest drinks, an engaging barstaff and now a select wine list have made the Cowgirl bar a required destination for anyone looking for good times! Weekday Happy Hours, seasonal patio tables and the best of local and touring bands round out the formula that has garnered the Cowgirl “best bar”, “best bartender” and “best cocktail” awards from the readers of the SF Reporter.

Best bar in Santa Fe, great happy hour specials.
