Besides the standard Mexican fare, Orlando's features lots of other Mexican dishes not found elsewhere. The pork was amazing, but the salsa was unforgettable with a distinctive smoky flavor. Service was good even though things were hopping, and there is a nice patio for outside dining. Great beers and margaritas besides.

We ate there with a group of six for lunch. It was cool and breezy but we were seated outside, but that was ok. We were seated with our menus but it took a long time for anyone to acknowledge us. We had to flag down someone after time to take our orders. Our friend ordered a beer and never got it with our drink order. Food came and it was good, our friend had to ask again for his beer. Waitress never came around to refill drinks. We sat and sat and had to ask for our bill. My husband paying for all of us had to walk up to the door for someone to take our money. Food was good but we are past the point in our lives for poor service. Our tip reflected our disappointment for the service received.

This is our 4th trip to Orlando's and it is always consistent. Small, intimate, colorful, superb service and New Mexico cuisine to die for! We love it! There is usually a wait, but so worth it.

We were recommended to this place by several locals. We came a little early (5:15) for dinner, but glad we came early. It had an outside waiting line by the time we left. The food was GREAT. No doubt the best meal we have had in Taos. My wife had the shredded chicken burrito and I had the beef Chimi. Their green chile is excellent. There is a small bar area that we sat at, with a full view of the kitchen area. Hard to beleive that the employees turn out such great food in such a little spot. It restaurant is very small, but they do have a patio area for outrside dining. It's a must visit on any trip to Taos.
