The food here is awesome. We ate a few times and enjoyed everything except maybe the steak. The wait staff was nice.

We were staying just down the road on a quick summer trip to the mountains to escape the Texas heat, when we found this place. It seems to be a local hang out during the slow summer season. Our waiter had his arm in a sling from a bicycle accident but provided great service with a little help from the... More

A classic ski resort restaurant with that great mountain atmosphere. Everyone in the restaurant was easy going, friendly, and even welcomed us to the ski valley. The dude serving the tables was cool, and served us really good food. The steak tacos were excellent, hit the spot, and we will definitely go back whenever we are in Taos.

If there's a better place to eat Navajo tacos, I don't know where it is. Make sure to get them "Christmas" style (both green and red chile sauce). The burgers are also fantastic. The Stray Dog has GREAT food and the setting is great. We've eaten there a few times and it has never disappointed.

Always on the lookout for dog friendly establishments when we travel with Mrs Jones, our four footed friend. After hiking most of the day in the area, Tim's offered a welcome respite. Cold beer on a patio over a stream. Dog allowed on the patio, heck even on the benches! Nachos weren't bad - beans nicely spicy. Service friendly both... More

This is the go-to restaurant in the summer, since it's the only bar/food open in Taos Ski Valley resort at night, so it can get crowded. Menu is typical New Mexican/bar food; bar often gets noisy.

The Bavarian Lodge was closed so decided to eat here. Sat outside on a gorgeous day and listened to the stream that runs under the deck. Service was great and friendly and the food was very good. Nachos were really tasty and a generous portion. I had the Navajo Taco and it was yummy. Their Christmas sauce is awesome--just the... More

The food at Tim's is very good and I would have given the restaurant a very good rating if the service was better. In the morning it seems a lot of the servers are more interested talking to their friends than paying attention to the tourists in town to ski. So if you go in there know it will take... More

We always stop here - the staff is great the food is good! Try the green chili - it's a must have. Have a margarita on the patio if it's summer time - the view up the mountain is beautiful!

First of all, KUDOS to Tim's Stray Dog for being the only food establishment in TSV open with extended hours during our Memorial weekend visit. The guys were friendly and very accomodating. We ate lunch and dinner there several times. The food was all good but we especially loved their Green & Blue Salad w/chicken and raspberry vinigarette and the... More
