“Awesome, just Awesome”
Reviewed March 6, 2014

Recommended highly by our desk clerk, this place delivered way more than expected! Great food, great service and cleanliness. A small, homey place that puts a personal twist on the Northern New Mexico classics. The Relleno and shrimp and the frito pie are two great entrees! The avacado pie is one of the top ten desserts I have ever eaten. A must do for anyone visiting Taos!!!

“Excellent meal”
Reviewed February 25, 2014

A friend and I had a great lunch here. I had the chicken enchiladas. There were two types of beans on the plate and, Hallelujah!, they weren't runny and boiled to mush, unlike the beans served in so many other restaurants. I would have preferred to have them slightly seasoned, as they were a little bland, but that's a minor issue. The red sauce was just spicy enough and the chicken in the enchiladas cooked just right. Even the iced tea was flavorful.
The place was packed for lunch; locals obviously know about this place and appreciate it.

“Authentic”
Reviewed February 23, 2014

We were told that this is the place to go for authentic Northern NM cuisine. We were told correctly. The food was excellent and fast and the atmosphere was very New Mexican. The wait was a little long and there wasn't really a great place to wait for a table. There is a fire pit outside, but there was some sort of junior hockey league convention, so there were kids all over the place. It looked like Orlando's was having a difficult time getting the large table of hockey kids seated. Other than the wait and no great place to wait, this place is excellent.
