“Excellent Restaurant! Great Ribs!”
Reviewed March 25, 2014

I really like everything about this restaurant! Great ambiance with a traditional New Mexican decor! The service is excellent, and on a timely manner. The short ribs were mouth watering to stare at and once eaten I was totally satisfied. I also recommend the German coleslaw, and homemade, made from fresh mash potatoes. For dessert I really enjoyed the flan, for it was a delightful finish to a good meal! The final price was well in my budget!

“not edible”
Reviewed March 7, 2014

worst restaurant i have ever been too, food was not edible!!!
i cant believe positive reviews, and family works in restaurants, so I know quality

ck my reviews out on trip advisor or yelp, i never gave bad rating before!

do not stop at this place, cant tell a book by cover, looks interesting from out side.

asked for steak fries, got homemade potato chips
corn was blah, texas toast was terrible and I wouldnt feed the meat to my dog
of course that assumes I could even open the saran wrapped package without a blowtorch!

We have eaten here many times. The service is excellent and the food is delicious. We will continue to eat here. Anything from the nachos to the steaks, margaritas to desserts. Everything is tasty!

“Authentic New Mexican Specialties”
Reviewed January 21, 2014

The sign outside tries to convince you to try their bbq - brisket, ribs, etc. But we stuck with the New Mexican selections, and we were rewarded. Blue corn cheese enchiladas with a deep, rich red chile and copious amounts of a mixture of jack and cheddar were served hot, through and through. So were the chiles rellenos (too often at other restaurants these go from freezer to fryer with resulting cold centers). The green sauce was just as good, in its own way, as the red. The beans were top quality too. Only the posole (an option, other choice is rice) was a disappointment. There was little flavor, just a touch of some beige "gravy" in place of the rich broth and chile flakes I'm used to. Next time (and there will be a next time) I'll try the rice. There were also some lunch specials that looked good on the blackboard. There were several families in the attractive and extensive dining room, and people seemed to know each other, visiting between tables. It lent a homey atmosphere.

You can go many places based on marketing of what now exists in Taos.Many will promise you excellent fare, but when you get to Casa de Valdez you will feel part of the family.. The best ribs in town!! A hamburger with all the trimmings..No al la carte nonsense!! This is a restaurant that has survived the ages in Taos County. Go enjoy, you will not be disappointed!!. JUst ate there again today!! KId friendly, tourist friendly, and best of all...local friendly....Many restaurants in Taos are not local friendly!!
