This is a friendly little place with good food, beer on tap, great service, and a good selection of salads and New Mexican food. There's a view of the ski hill and outside seating. My husband enjoyed the fish tacos and I had the chicken quesadilla and a salad. Our meal was about $27 which included a beer.

I can't say enough great things about the Mexican food served at the Stray Dog. Try the Huevos Rancheros, or the combo plate. Both delicious! Neat atmosphere too.

Friends kindly put us up in their time-share condo nearby, and as we hadn't time to shop we were pretty much committed to eating here at Tim's every day seeing as the only other option was a tiny market inside a ski resort charging real gold rush prices for everything. Happily, it turned out that Tim's was a fun hangout... More

Good atmosphere, sat at the bar and had good conversation with the locals. Good food, came quick and it was affordable. We came in late on a quiet night and they were very nice.

I'd been dying to have some real New Mexican Food and this restaurant did not disappoint. I had the Navajo Taco and my companions feasted on great pork enchiladas with some of the best chipotle sauce I have ever tasted. We ate outdoors and the stream running by was very soothing. Unfortunately, there is some construction going on around. I... More

You can walk to the cantina from Alpine Village, where we were staying, and find a fun crowd of people! It's a gathering place. The margaritas are great and so are the pork mole enchiladas! The people are friendly and the view is absolutely wonderful! We were here 12 years ago and bought one of their t-shirts! I wore it... More

The service here was wonderful. The view is currently overlooking the village with views of the ski lifts. A new hotel is under construction right now so not sure how the view will be after it is completed. A rushing mountain stream runs right beside the restaurant and the sound of the water is relaxing and refreshing. The food was... More
