The food is ok. Nothing exciting. A clean place with traditional fare and pleasant service. This place has a lot of competition and there are better places to choose from.
I doubt if nI'l go back.

We were looking on our one night in Taos to have a sit-down meal with a good margarita and a northern New Mexican dinner at a reasonable price. You would imagine there would be a big choice. But if you eliminate those that are expensive and those at the other end with florescent lights screaming at you, and those that don't serve alcohol, it was a slim choice in this town of 5000+. We did read the previous TripAdvisor review, but decided to try it anyway since it was close to our motel. Glad we did. It's nothing like what the other reviewer experienced and it's hard to account for the difference. Make up your own mind. We had delicious margaritas, quick and polite service, and some of the best food of our two week trip through CO and NM. The chile rellenos with either green or red chile were some of the best we have had. And our beef tacos and chicken enchilada were fine. That enchilada had exceptionally nice breast meat chicken. The lettuce and tomato salad added good color and freshness to the big plates. Sopapilla with honey was a sweet pleasant ending. If we lived here we would be regulars.

Stay away!!!! My friends and I went to go have dinner. Food was so unappealing. Not worth the price. Staff is rude.. This may be a family owned restaurant but this and its other restaurant *Mante's* which we went to the following day are AWFUL!!!
