Decent Mexican Food

I went here with a Mexican family at their suggestion. The food was decent and portions were large. It was very good, but not great. You order at the counter, and food is brought to you, yet it is priced the same as similar restaurants with waiters. It's nothing fancy, but clean and offers a... read more

Fresh meals with fresh ingredients. Tremendous value for the quality of food I was given. Portions were very large...I ate for a day and a half from left overs which reheated nicely. Attentive staff with very fast order to table time. Ordered Carne Asada that was delicious...meat was tender but cooked just right not to rare not to done. Also... More

I went here based on reviews from the locals, and had high expectations. Sadly, we left dissapointed. On a positive note, it was a short walk from the Sagebrush where we stayed, the counter ordering was quick and efficient, and the tortillas were hand made. On a negative note, the food was over cooked, drastically lacked seasoning, and was just... More

This sunny restaurant with two locations in Taos is always busy. It's a stand and order and then have your food delivered to your table sort of venue. The steak quesadilla was definitely the best choice at our table. Yum. Generous with the guacamole too. There will be plenty to take home for later.

We ate at the Guadalajara Grill and even though you have to order at a counter, the food was delicious! It is a clean, fast and great restaurant if you just want a yummy meal without ambience. The tres leches cake is awesome!

Two Places in Taos one on each end of the Main Drag. We have eaten at both. Great New Mexican food. Casual place, easy to order, fast service. Nice outdoor eating area with great sunset.

As best we could figure out, there are 2 of these restaurants in Taos. We called the southern one and there was a 45 minute wait. So we called the northern one and they said that we could come right in. It is located in a strip mall and it is pretty large inside. The program is to order and... More
