Food was amazing.

Food was absolutely amazing. Wait staff not so much. They weren't friendly at all. A little expensive but was good!

This place is always good. Who cares about free chips and dip when you get this kind of food!!! We've ordered numerous items on the menu and they are all good. Beans are flavorful and they have the best sopapilla around. My husband had the Shrimp enchiladas which he said were amazing. I had the stuffed sopapilla and it was... More

Good food, nice service and reasonable prices. The place is kind of awkward, but in what matters is very good. Will come back and recommend.

Visited twice during a weekend in Taos. The food is incredible - spiced perfectly and everything very, very tasty. The sopapillas with honey were the best I've ever had. To top it off was the wonderful staff. Very friendly, helpful and attentive. Fantastic experience.

It's always a good sign when you enter a restaurant and the locals are eating there. It looks to be family run - everyone was really friendly. Food was fresh and very tasty. The sopasillas with honey that are served with your meal were fantastic. Who needs chips and salsa? This is not a fancy place and the emphasis is... More

We waited for more than half an hour to get seated. And the restaurant wasn't full. We ordered enchiladas for my 5yo and it came in a plate that was super hot. She burned herself at least twice. Food was just ok to me but the sopapillas made up for it a little bit. I had high expectations for this... More

I recommend the steak tacos. Their tender and juicy with awesome seasoning!!! The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is that they make you pay for chips and salsa!! I've never eaten at a Mexican Restaurant that doesn't give complimentary chips and salsa before!

The place has plenty of character but the interior is stuffy and the furniture more than rickety for the price you pay for simple Mexican fare.

Have to pay for chips and salsa. Food was just okay. The beans tasted and looked like canned beans. The sopapillas were the best part of the meal. Service was good.

My wife and I ate here while visiting the Taos area for a week. We sat outside in the front patio. I liked it better than my wife. I had the Pork Adovaca and she had the Chile Relleno. Although a few pieces of my pork were chewy, I liked it overall. My wife liked hers as well, but didn't... More
