We were in the TSV for Michael Hearne's annual Big Barndance Music Festival. Being present for the music doesn't allow many choices and the city of Taos is too far to venture to. We sampled several restaurants while we were here but this was the best. Most extensive and complete menu with an active bar scene. The nachos were excellent.... More

food was great, fun Place the hang out, the photos on the landing of the stairs where people have traveled with their shirts and taken photos all over the world was a very neat thing

We were staying in Taos Ski Valley for Michael Hearne's Big Bardance Music Festival. Our focus was on the music, so we didn't want to head down into Taos for lunch or dinner and ended up sampling all of the restaurants up at the ski area. Of all of them, Tim's Stray Dog Cantina was our favorite. No matter what... More

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.
