We had a very nice meal here on the patio. The staff was nice and the food very tasty. We plan to come back again.

Stopped here for lunch, service was quick and friendly. We loved the authentic cuisine, we had the enchiladas. I would highly recommend this little spot.

My family stopped here and we were all pleased with our food. I got a beef taco and veggie taco and both were good. The beef was shredded and not ground. Even my picky son enjoyed his taco.

We stopped for lunch and found the service to be really good. Greeted, seated and order taken quickly. Our Ceviche Mexicano was absolutely delicious. I ordered the Chicken Mole Enchiladas and could not have been happier. Lots of chicken and just right portion of beans...and rice. The mole was really delicious. My partner ordered Chicken Enchiladas and they were equally stuffed with chicken. The green Chile was just perfect in terms of spice level. Great place!More

We went there several times to eat while staying in Taos. The selection of "Mexican" food and the quality of it was excellent. They have a full bar and the service was very good. We tried several dishes on the menu and all of them...were prepared in a delicious way. The staff is friendly and the service is fast. It was recommended to us by the hotel and we were glad that we went there.More

Our family enjoyed our lunch here in March. The vegans had plenty of Mexican food options to choose from. Satisfactory kids menu. Good service, convenient parking right out front.

It is small and quaint, but worth the wait. I love seafood and seafood enchiladas These were the best enchiladas I have ever had!

Tiny place with big flavors!! Vegetarian friendly. I will come back here if I am back in taos nm. I ordered fish tacos and my husband got a cheese burger. They were both great. Very good service also

If this is the second best place in Taos then I’d hate to see the others. This place was very average. They don’t serve margaritas, only beer and wine and those wine margaritas which aren’t truly margaritas. The enchiladas were not all that great— canned...chicken with thin green chili sauce. Fast food is just as good. We’re sorry we didn’t try someplace a little more authentic and good.More

Grandparents, both son's familes and 5 grandchildren for dinner. Very friendly staff! Excellent tasting food. Wait staff was attentive. We had beef enchiladas, chicken enchiladas, beef fajitas, chicken fajitas, chicken burrito, quesadillo (sp) and 2 of the specials that had beef tips. Enjoyed the meal...and the experience.More

As previous reviews great food and great service, can’t say more. Fish fry was outstanding, crispy outside and flaky inside. Chicken mole enchiladas were very delicious! Hopefully won’t change!

I actually had a BLT which might have been the best one EVER. But then I proceeded to eat my wife's enchilada...We would have gone back more often but timing was off

We visited twice, and were pleased with their New Mexican offerings at fair prices. They’ve expanded since we were here last in 2019, which was good to see. Service was friendly and efficient. We’ll continue to return, and recommend it to others.

this was one of very few restaurants that was open for dinner in November. The food was great. Really loved the salsa (beware, it's spicy). We loved the Chilli Rellenos and the flan for dessert.
