The Tune-Up Café is an ace in the hole for Santa Fe restaurant recommendations, especially if you’re planning a meal for picky eaters. The café is filled with a glow. People-friendly touches include kids’ books, good music and lighting, and a long mirror that lets wall-facing diners feel like they’re a part of the room. Meanwhile, the food manages to be a lot of things without following any one path. It’s not a burger joint, but the burgers are good. It’s not New Mexican, but Tune-Up serves chile rellenos and huevos rancheros and green chile. On paper, its most unique influence is from El Salvador, but you could eat there many times and not even notice. There’s usually a vegan soup and an incredible steak (from local, grass-fed cows) on special. (Alibi Staff, March 29, 2012)
