Hidden gem

This was a nice stop. Dog-friendly patio. Split a sandwich so you can have dessert and split that too as they are both huge!!

My husband and I ate an early dinner at Sugar Nymphs Bistro after exploring the High Road Artisans Tour. At least 2 of the artists recommended this restaurant, so we drove there. The goat cheese salad and beef dish with mashed potatoes are what my husband and I had. We got the chocolate cake to go. The food was fresh... More

My husband and I both had hamburgers here. These were excellent! The buns were homemade, and the burgers were cooked to perfection! Stop here on your High Road to Taos Scenic Byway tour. You won't regret it.

The food WAY exceeded my expectations. You'd think we were in a fancy shmancy place judging by the quality of the food! My husband is REEEL PICKY, and he loved his steak. MAKE ROOM FOR DESSERTS! (We never order dessert, but these are like the best of the Grandmas type of desserts!) The place has a semi formal homey, authentic... More

Second time to visit for lunch. Outstanding food and deserts. The chocolate maple pecan pie is out of this world. It was the first itme I had tried it and will alsways choose it on succeeding visits. The staff is friendly and very accommodating. Make a special effort to go there.

Not fancy, but the real deal for delicious food made with local and fresh ingredients. You will have to wait at least 30 minutes after you order, and probably should go at off-times to avoid having to wait for a table. Best to call to make sure they are open, because their hours will vary. Yummy

We eat here when we can as it is an hour away from us in a very small northeastern NM town. The ambience is funky and fun, and it is next door to a cool local live talent theater. The food is simply amazing and if at all possible save room for one of their desserts which are big enough... More

Green chile burgers are out of this world! Fresh, hand formed patties that were perfectly cooked. Served on a fresh bun with all the appropriate condiments. One of the best burgers ever!

We had read that this was the place to stop for lunch on the high road to Taos and we were not disappointed. It was very busy and the servers seemed a little overwhelmed but my husband and I both ordered burgers which turned out to be the best burgers we have ever tasted. First and foremost for me they...

Sugar Nymphs Bistro is waaaay out it he middle of nowhere. We planned a late lunch stop there on our way between Taos and Santa Fe. I had checked their website and it said that they were open for lunch until 3:00pm starting on July 5 (about 2 ½ weeks before our visit. We got there at 2:35pm and a... More
