The reviews are pretty consistent. This place is good food and atmosphere. Certainly nothing facncy but they deliver on the food. Blue corn buffalo enchilada had the the right amount of heat, and the smoky sauce added some good layvers of flavor. My partner had the Chicken quesadilla was ok, not great. I finished with the frozen avacado pie -- liked it -- whipped avacado with some lemon and sweetness, and whipped cream on top: it you like avacado, you'll want to try this. Felt like a famiy restaurant that has been here a while, and it does that by serving good food. Note: no hard liquor, for those where that is important.

Very popular restaurant of north side of Taos. Good for the whole family. Very affordable and dishes have been the same consistency since opening over 15 years ago. Most entrees around $10. Straight forward New Mexican dishes with traditional green, red and caribe chiles sauces. No reservations, so you might have to wait for a table.

We visited Orlando's on a trip to Taos last fall. We were instant fans -- so much so that we ate there 2 nights in a row. Happy to report from our trip last week the place is as good as ever. Which in my opinion is the best in the Taos area (maybe the entire state) for Northern New Mexico style Mexican food. Perfect funky atmosphere, good service, reasonable prices and consistently fabulous food. Highly recommended.

We loved this restaurant! It's a tiny place full of wonderful smells and friendly staff. The guacamole is amazing and the posole is full of flavor. We enjoyed the chicken enchiladas and chicken fajitas, as well. Outdoor seating is available. Don't let the small size fool you - huge flavors await!

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.
