I thoroughly enjoyed the combo plate and my wife ordered the Baja tacos which must have been good because I was not allowed to taste it. Ordered mine "Christmas" to get the best of both Chili's. I normally don't eat at the same place twice during a trip but may have to break that rule for this place. The staff... More

My friend and I stopped by Taos Ski Valley to check it out and take pics. We were hungry and decided to give Tim's Stray Dog Cantina a try, best decision ever! Loved the bloody maria and the grilled chicken sandwich I ordered! The service was great and the ambiance was chill!

In spite of the construction going on all around, the staff are upbeat, and the food is great. Green chili on everything! Good drinks!

We dropped in during the off season and were so glad that we did. The Stray Dog is a really terrific place for NM comfort food and drinks in the Taos Ski Valley area. The bartender, Diego, was great - good suggestions all around on wine and beer selections and menu options and even the local area. You can't go... More

Our favorite drive for green chili cheeseburgers. Be patient when they are busy and enjoy the surroundings.

Yum! We go here every year for the silver coin margarita, green and blue burger and great atmosphere. The staff there is so laid back but attentive, and has been consistent year over year so it is nice to see the friendly faces. In addition, they have great food whether you are looking for a good burger or something else.... More

Tim's is reasonably priced with a very good selection of food. The burger is great as are the blue corn enchilada's, burrito's, taco's ( We ate there a few times on our trip!).
