On our way home to Colorado from New Mexico we stopped here for one last New Mexican meal. Taos Ski Valley being a small area, we didn't have high expectations but wow - we were blown away! We sat outside on the small deck over the creek/river which was lovely, and the food was amazing. We had such a hard... More

Service was great. Small place food was ok. I had chicken enchiladas with mole. Were good but too much mole on them. Atmosphere was great.

My husband and I were in Taos for a long weekend and took in some hiking. When we arrived at ski valley, a local told us this was a good place for lunch. It was. My husband ordered the Baja blue corn fish tacos and I had the toasted turkey grilled sandwich, with included bacon, avocado, lettuce, tomato and provolone... More

Tim's Stray Dog Cantina has been a local favorite for a long time! It's location in the Taos Ski Valley means you may have to make it a destination spot but don't worry, it is worth the trip. The menu has lots of choices and there are a few tasty surprises! Try the Suzie Sushi, a blue corn dusted Chile... More

The ski valley has very limited dining in the off season. Luckily Tim's has great food and is almost never closed. I ate a really great chicken salad one time and a delicious quesadilla another time. Their fries are the BEST!

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!

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
