Basic bar, really nice menu (best mole in the area), has some good, mostly local craft brews (could be more variety). Fun place to hang out, kid friendly, super nice staff. My go-to après ski destination.

We stop at Stray Dog after skiing or hiking in the Taos Ski Valley. It is one of the best places to relax and enjoy a Saturday afternoon. We usually have a meal or a snack and a drink. The staff is friendly and when the weather permits, we love to sit outside on their deck in the sunshine. During... More

The food was average at best. However, there are very few options in the valley and if you are looking for casual dining this is about it. We ate here twice, once I ordered the pulled-pork sandwich and then the navajo fry bread taco. Both were okay but certainly not anything I would ever want again.

We ate here after hiking up to Willams Lake and had a great time. Food was better than good (try the chile relleno with red chile sauce). Good beer and wine selection and cool tee shirts. We will return next time we are in Taos.

Skip it. Not sure what has happened as we have been here in years past, but this visit the food was not good. Service was terrible, but it really cant be blamed on the server as the place was packed and there was only him and the bartender! Red (the server) did a great job of handling the crowd and... More

We had a room above Tim's, but the food, energy, and excitement made Tim's a perfect place to share Taos' Ski Celebration! Started by the Blakes and continuing to impress!

We tried this place for the first time this year even though we've been skiing in Taos for years. At first the staff was not very friendly or attentive, but eventually we got service and the green chili cheeseburger was really good. A smiling server would make a huge difference though. It's a cozy little place.

Tim's Stray Dog Cantena is at the base of a ski mountain so expect ski clothing everywhere. Solid wooden tables and bench type seating. If you are able to get a bench that faces the windows they look out and up the mountain side, very beautiful. The meals are a perfect size and not too costly. I love their tortilla... More

Great food and drinks. But, what makes the Cantina special are the ladies behind the bar, serving non-stop. Good place to go if you're travelling solo as very friendly atmosphere.
