Friday dinner after skiing

Stayed close by so we returned for dinner after long day on mountain. The Place was full and the crowd was lively. Drinks were cold and the chilies were hot! Just like I remembered it. I think I love the food but know I love the place. Comfortable and fun

Excellent - Spicy but excellent food and drink. Great atmosphere and service. The location is at the base behind Cottam Ski Rentals. We've eaten there 2 years Ina a row and it has been great both times.

We had a meal at Tim's during our ski week in Taos and were impressed with the service, staff and authentic New Mexican food. Good strong Margaritas! Definitely recommended.

We've eaten here several times. The food isn't bad, but it isn't great either. 11 year old ordered frito chili pie and it was so spicy it wasn't edible. A couple of adults tried it and it was too hot for them also. They should have a warning, especially for children. It's a nice place to warm up after skiing.... More

Super friendly service, fun atmosphere and delicious food. Husband had the green chile burger which was good but my tacos el pastor really hit it home. Great flavor served along side a nice porter had me refueled and ready to hit the slopes again.

We wanted to grab some lunch before we headed up for a snow mobile ride and ended up at Tim's! The staff was so friendly, our waiter sat with us and told us about the history of Taos and things we should do while here! We got the Sante Fe Pale Ale that was on tap and watched people skiing... More

Another one of our must eat places for breakfast before we hit the slopes. Sadly this trip it was sub-par and definitely not as good as it usually is. They serve blue corn blueberry pancakes that are my go to and this time they came out super dry and cold. Service was slower than normal too. They do have some... More

Came here for dinner after a nice day of skiing. Sat at the bar upstairs. All the food was great. Delicious chips and guac. My girlfriend had the ahi tuna tacos and I had the tacos al pastor. Both excellent. The service was awesome. Very friendly and quick. Felt like a local. Thanks for the great meal!
