“Great New Mex Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2013

My wife and I decided to eat at Orlando's after advice from our B&B host. The restaurant was very quaint and great atmosphere. The location also has outdoor seating. Simply put: great New Mex food with good service--highly recommend a visit.

“A must!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2013 via mobile

If you love Mexican ( New Mexico style )
You have to go here. It's tiny, fun, great place for lunch. Reasonable prices, great food. Our waitress was super. We love this type of place when we're traveling.

“Dinner Wrap-Up”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

Finished our Spring Break with dinner at Orlando's. There was a wait of about 45 minutes. The weather was beautiful, so waiting outside around the fire pit with other patrons was fine. We met and talked with several other folks from TEXAS (seemed like everyone was from TEXAS!) and enjoyed delicious margaritas and cold cervezas. The food was tasty-different from the usual Tex-Mex of the LoneStar State, especially the green chile sauce. The blue corn chicken enchiladas were excellent.Mi esposa enjoyed the Vegetarian burrito and the kids had the beef quesadilla and bean and cheese burrito.Unlike most Tex-Mex places, chips and salsa are not complimentary, and soda refills are limited to 1, so pull the reigns in on the kids' straws. The kids of course enjoyed the desserts of the Warm Brownie Sundae and we relished the Mama's Apple Pie. Orlando's has now been elevated to one of our go-to eateries when in Taos.

“Slow Service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 1, 2013

The food at Orlando's is very good. The pasoles were excellent, and different from most of the places we ate at in Taos. We waited 20 minutes for the server to bring the check, then another 15 minutes for her to return with the credit card and receipt. Unfortunately the long wait took away from the dining experience and made us late.
