Visiting Taos Ski Valley for first time. Followed our son's recommendation to come here for breakfast. Was so good the first time (for breakfast burritos and blue corn pancakes), came back again for more. And now we're sitting here, after ski, with a couple of "Bloody Maria's", their famous cure-all. Lively, fun place. Friendly service. Good food. Can warmly recommend.

The food was OK, but the reported mouse on the 2nd floor eating area was disconcerting to say the least. I had the brisket which was kinda dry, but edible. Beers were cold and service was good. Just unfortunate, mouse.

The restaurant choices are slim in the TSV and this is probably one of the best ones. If it was in Taos, it would be rated mid-pack. Pretty standard NM food and drink. On the upside, it is very handy and the atmosphere and service were good. Its worth a try....

We had an excellent dinner with great drinks our first night. Another morning we had a hearty traditional American breakfast. Both visits we had quality service and short wait times.

Had to find out the hard way that there are NO breakfast restaurants near Lift 1 at Taos! How can that be? Well, don't worry: Tim's has you covered, and it's GREAT! We were in Tim's the night before having drinks and saw "Breakfast" on the menu, so tried it. Full menu of amazing, home cooked meals with all the... More

Not our first time and definitely not our last time either. We always try and come here when we're in town. The service is always good. The food is always great. We had lunch while skiing. The tortilla soup was just what I needed after skiing!!! I do wish they had queso. But great salsa and guacamole!!

We eat here at least twice every ski trip. The food is fantastic and has tons of flavor. Get the Black and Blue salad you won't be disappointed.

We had dinner on a weekday evening. Not overly busy and the service was good. It sounds crazy but the chips were a bit stale. However the adult beverages were stiff!!! yummy. Nice selection of meals. I enjoyed the street style tacos without complaint. Heads up, the red chili was a bit warmer than I expected. I didn't find the... More
