Magnifico

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

After waiting 90 minutes for lunch, we received burned hamburger and bean burger, my friend who order soup was told they ran out. Best part of meal, his chocolate cake. Waitress brought him a big piece.

I had a most wonderful lunch here yesterday with 4 friends. We all ordered sandwiches and at the end of our meal all plates were clean. I ordered the chicken breast BLT sandwich with a side salad and "gingerade". The sandwich was on a house baked roll, light and flaky, the chicken was pounded a little thin so that it... More

This bistro was a recommendation of our inn keepers in Santa Fe - they said it is a real find. We were delighted and thoroughly enjoyed the featured soup which was corn chowder that thankfully was vegetarian friendly since one of our party was a vegetarian that eats fish. We shared the bean burger and it was delicious. We were... More

Lovely spot with great Norteno character. The brunch food is better than anywhere in Taos or Santa Fe, especially the value. Magical strawberry scones the day we went. But the service has a way to go to match quality of food. Its a small restaurant and why 4 workers in the front of the house could not get us coffee... More

I realized long ago that my favorite dining experience is not dining at some incredible, chef driven, hyper inventive, urban den of gastronomy, but rather stumbling upon some un pretentious, textured (maybe rough at the edges), unique and delicious place in a totally out of the way location…maybe in the middle of nowhere. This is Sugar Nymphs in Penasco. Penasco... More

This is an excellent stop on the high road to Taos. We found this place a year ago and definitely wanted to return this year. The food is fresh, creative and tasty. The grilled cheese with green chili, carmelized onion, and mushrooms is delicious as is the BLT both served with an excellent side salad. Sadly we did not have... More

If you drive down the main street of Penasco you can't miss the restaurant called Sugar Nymphs, owned and run by two very nice ladies. We arrived early (it doesn't open until 5) and were seated by a very nice waitress. The food was very well prepared but was a little pricey for what you got. One thing we noticed... More
