Very few patrons so we were lucky there was no wait. Chicken enchiladas delicious maybe slightly too much Mesa on tamales. I love the decor

Had a family dinner after a day of skiing. Had to wait an hour but was a fun atmosphere around a fire pit to keep warm. Good food and service.

I normally don't write any reviews positive or negative – in fact this is my first one ever. However, this was the worse experience I have ever had, and I travel all over the world. First, when the hostess states 1 hr + that means...More

Thank you for such nice word. Marrissa is fairly new and she is great, we love having her as part of the family. I showed her this and it made her day. Hope you come back again. Orlando

Mostly yes. We went around 2pm on the Thursday after Cmas, had about 15-20 min wait. The "margarita" made with agave wine was tasty, and light. The enchiladas were good, but don't really think their red chili is worth a "best" rating. Now their chili...More

Orlando’s was recommended to us after a snowmobiling adventure, so we went to check it out. It was very busy, but we enjoyed visiting with others in the warming hut while we waited. Our wait wasn’t as long as the hostess had forecasted, so that...More

Thank you for coming in. The Los Colores is my Favorite and yes the chili caribe is a bit hotter. A true chili with no flour or oil. Hope you come again and Happy New year. Orlando

Great place to eat authentic Mexican food on Christmas eve in Taos. There was a nice firepit and heater to keep you warm while sipping margaritas. Great hole in the wall kind of place!

Thank you for coming in. Glad you liked the waiting area. Some people cant believe when we tell them they have to wait outside, then they don't want to come in after discovering the fire pit. Orlando.

This place was recommended by many people to us. I had the house speciality which was an enchilada plate. Red sauce was really great and spicy-beef and chicken filling was a bit dry. The pasole instead of rice was a nice touch. But overalls it’s...More

No. Orlandos does not take reservations. It's best to go early because it's very popular.
