“Best Takeout”
Reviewed September 14, 2013

Took out very tasty fajitas and garlic prawns. Both good but not 5 star. I would go a third time. parking and seating a bit scarce.

“Sunday night in Taos”
Reviewed September 13, 2013

We drove around looking for a place to stop to eat and stumbled across this little restaurant. Parking is rough as it at a bad corner but it was sunday so no problem
Food was good and we sat on the patio enjoying a lovely evening. Service was excellent. really glad we stopped.

“Excellent food and unique restaurant”
Reviewed September 11, 2013

We found this restaurant by accident as it was one of the few places open for dinner till 9PM. I really liked the atmosphere with several seating areas - outside patio, small room with four tables, and a main indoor seating area. It was cozy and pleasant. The wait staff were attentive, but not intrusive.

The menu had a nice selection. For an appetizer, we chose the chips, salsa and guacamole. The salsa was delicious with a roasted flavor. For my meal, I chose the chicken enchiladas with green chile. The chicken was fresh and the enchiladas had a nice flavor. We were too stuffed for dessert, but the choices were quite tempting. One of my friends chose the red trout and really enjoyed it.

We would definitely go back again!

Reviewed September 9, 2013

Great find in Taos. Not a place you would stop in when you first see it. Parking can be a problem but worth it. Dinning on the patio was great and the chicken tacos were great . The service was prompt and the food was served fast and hot. Fish tacos also done well.

“Wish there was a 4 1/2 rating”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

Although not the best experience I have ever had, it was pretty close. Don't let the front of the place scare you. Walk around to the right and there is a wonderful patio. We were greeted and seated right away.

The food was very, very good and the service was excellent. I had the chimichanga but the portion wasn't so huge that you were stuffed afterwards; the portion was just right.
