Both my spouse and I felt our food was close to the best ever Mexican we have had. Everything was homemade from the distinctly tasty tamales to the corn tortillas. Every bite was delicious. It is like eating in a store, so there is not this great ambience of sorts but it is a great road trip stop for lunch.

I like this place because I was staying in the ski valley and didn't want to drive to town for wine. Also they had a cork screw when i couldn't find one at a gas station when I was in town. Very nice staff and good selection of wine.

Family-run since forever. Homemade tamales and the green sauce is to die for, which is really saying something in New Mexico! Closes at 430p so make it for breakfast or lunch. Very casual, feels like your grandmom has made you lunch. Such a treasure, worth the trip out to Arroyo Seco - great drive by the way, take Rim Road

I love the little bar in Arroyo Seco, Get a shot of tequila and eat a homemade tamale. it is on the way to Taos Mountain so you can get a little warmer and something yummy for your belly. You will meet a lot of locals in here. Very peaceful.

Stopped for lunch. Simple, authentic, but nothing to write home about. Beef burrito average as was chicken tacos. Slightly overpriced...only other place to eat was ice cream shop.

Unassuming little cantina with a great bar, patio and little kitchen that produced the best meal we had in our brief stay...and I'd put it up against all the local favorites! Had cheese and chili tamales with green sauce, beans and rice...fantastic! The little town of Arroyo Seco has enough shopping and crafts to keep the wife happy without having... More

Authentic. That is the only thing you need to know. Order the combination plate so you can try everything. If you don't want to eat Mexican food then go for the Burger. If you don't like REALLY hot don't get the green chilies on it. This is a VERY casual spot. You order at the counter. You sit at cramped... More
