Great food, good environment

My family LOVES going here after skiing. They've got some great New Mexican food, but also some milder options for those who don't like spice (fries, chicken sandwich, etc). Definitely try the Navajo taco or the Suzie sushi if you're into spice. It's family-friendly, but also a good place to get a... read more

We had an amazing meal at Tim's Stray Dog Cantina. The Blue Corn Chicken enchiladas were fantastic! I got them with both the red Nd green chili on them. Our waitress told us about adding a little bit of honey to the sauce, and I tried it, FANTASTIC! Some of the best enchiladas I've ever had.

After a few drinks at various pubs we stumbled into Tim's. It was hopping for a quiet midweek when a lot of other restaurants were closed. The green chile margarita was amazing! Super fast service, good mix of NM favourites and pub grub. Now we know about it we will definitely be back.

This is our second trip to Taos Ski Valley this year and both times included multiple trips to Tim's. The vibe is great as there is always a buzz to the place in the afternoon and early evening. Very casual and you will see a large variety of people from families with small children to locals to wealthy elderly couples.... More

After writing a couple of not-so-great reviews, I wanted to write something more positive, and as we have an upcoming trip to TSV, I thought of Tim's. We've probably eaten everywhere in the ski valley, but Tim's is one of our favorites. My mother-in-law lives a mile from the ski valley, and we visit her twice a year. We usually... More

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
