“Smaller pieces, lower quality”
Reviewed September 13, 2013 via mobile

1 month ago I would have given Taos Pizza Outback 5 stars. Unfortunately the new manager Aaron in his warped (un Taos like) attempt to raise company profits has reduced the slice size by 25% and somehow managed to kill the quality in the doing. Say goodbye to the best pizza in Taos.

“WOW! What a hidden surprise.”
Reviewed August 28, 2013

The pizza was very excellent, but the restaurant is a bit rustic. Suspend your judgment when you first see the outside and head on it for some good food. I definitely would go back and try some of their other dishes. Definitely a place to try.

“Family Vacation 2013”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

We called ahead and ordered our pizzas for carry out and the employee that answered the phone was very helpful and knowledgeable about what was on the menu and how many we would need for our group of 11 and she also had some great recommendations on some very tasty pizzas. We took them home and they were delicious we had The Shredder and that was the biggest hit with the green chili

“NEVER AGAIN!”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

My family and I have eaten at Taos Pizza Outback for 15 years and will never again return! The food and service used to be great- it was literally our first stop when we got to Taos and our last. The staff used to be friendly and knowledgeable, but this is no longer the case! There used to be a female manager there that was always positive and remembered my wife and I and our family every summer we returned, she gave fantastic service, extremely knowledgeable about what the restaurant was serving under her watch and knew her job. We could count on seeing many of the same great waitstaff year after year- sadly for it's customers and the reputation that has changed.
We had a waiter that took an immensely long time getting to our table after we asked several times and when he finally made it passed the blame to the girl behind the counter for not telling him- our experience was downhill from there. We waited two hours for salads that were wilted and burnt pizza! No one offered any kind of compensation and when asked about the MOD we were told there wasn't one! The prices have soared and portions inconsistent since we started going in the late 90s. Sorry Pizza Outback- but what for us was a Taos landmark will not see another dollar of mine!
