Orlando's is a perfectly decent, moderately-priced New Mexican restaurant. Bright and casual. The menu is pretty standard fare. The food was good, especially the fajitas. The portions for the price were excellent. The service was friendly. Beer appears to come in a bottle or can;...More

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