We eat here every time we visit the area. They have a nice patio but there is always a wait. It is definitely worth it. Great service and reasonable priced.

There is also a nice outdoor seating area but we opted to sit inside.... More

Oh my. . . Orlandos is so good. And after a week of nothing burgers, tacos, and all that stuff, this was the food we had come so far to experience.

Very good authentic New Mexican fare. The chile-smothered french fries with cheese were amazing, like New Mexican "poutine"! Orlando's was perfect for getting my "chile-fix" !

This is a very popular restaurant, and it gets crowded, so you probably want to get there early or be prepared to wait.
