Huge portions! Great value.

While the food here is good, its not in my top five for New Mexico, or probably even that close to my top five. However, it is good, no complaints at all.

Best salsa I had on my trip. Had the chicken and beef enchiladas and the the food was decent. It was like the fast food version of New Mexican food. Service was very fast and friendly. If you want New Mexican food and you want it fast and at a good price, this is a decent place.

The Grill was recommended by our host. We had hiked to Williams Lake and gone to the Gorge Bridge. We were hungry. We went to the Grill on the north end of Taos. We parked, walked inside and were greeted by its simplicity. A place to eat, not fine dinning, thank you. The dining room is large with plain tables... More

Good place to easily/quickly pop-in when you want more than fast-food. Not fine dining; just a pleasant, convenient place to R&R while getting good diner-food, including really nice Mexican-chow, at very reasonable prices.

Nice, large dining room with ample space for large groups or if you want some space and solitude. I stop at this place every time I am in Taos--sometimes for lunch and sometimes for dinner. I have never been disappointed. The burritos are great as well as the enchiladas. Very fair portions make this spot a good bargain. Homemade horchata... More

This place was very good!! I was surprised that such a big, popular place was a walk up and order type thing, but none the less it was good! We sure missed queso (Texas peeps) while in NM, couldn't find it anywhere- including here! Ice cold beer mugs, and good food!

Whilst I've been to both Guadalajara in Mexico and El Paso Texas, as an Australian I don't feel qualified to join the argument over whether the style is Mexican or Texan. What I can say is that the food is very good, serves are ample, service is OK (not table service - you order and pay at the counter) and... More

The Guad (as we call it) gets 5 stars for what it is - an affordable family run place with pretty good to pretty great food. Is it the best New Mexican food around? No. But is it a great family place for a casual family meal? Yes. Our favorites are the Aztec quesadillas, chimichangas and carnitas. Plus the chips,... More
