“Best Northern NM food!”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

Orlando's sets the standard for northern NM food. The food is consistent anf filling. Best red and green chile dishes in the Taos area. Be prepared to wait for a table during the busy seasons. The restaurant is small and has limited tables. During the summer there is additional abundant seating outside. They serve beer, wine and Agave Margaritas. The service is fast and excellent. They do not take reseravations due to the crowds. Waiting for a table is well worth the time, due to the food quality. Make sure to stop and eat here when in Taos. They serve lunch and dinner and close at 9PM.

“Northern NM Gem”
Reviewed March 8, 2013

Orlando's is really fantastic. Great service, great New Mexican food. I love the salsa and the dishes with hominy and beans. The place is a little on the small side (if you have to sit indoors), and sometimes they have strange hours on weekends. But check it out if you're in Taos!

“Small but good!”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

Orlando's came highly recommended by our hotel's conceirge. It is very small; it is very colorful; the food was delicious; the prices are excellent; the service was a bit slow due to the crowds at the restaurant that day.
