“Busy, busy, busy”
Reviewed January 22, 2014

You know you're at the right place when you can't find a parking spot. The food was wonderful. Something to write home about: we had wings--and not just your average buffalo wing you can get at any pizza joint--these were large pieces of chicken with lots of meat. We had a "Shelly" salad (may have the wrong name here), and it was perfect. It had lettuce, cheese, walnuts--and other goodies topped with its own dressing. The pizza was good--don't think I like the idea of artichokes and walnuts on a pizza--it sounded like a good idea, but it wasn't my favorite. Loved the crust and the sesame seeds.

“good food, great service”
Reviewed January 19, 2014

busy Saturday night of MLK weekend - town was moderately busy, Outback was full when we arrived but dying down around 9pm. First time visit - we stumbled on the place looking for pizza.

decor - uniquely Taos, small with lots of mementos from Taos. Our table for two was wedged into corner, nothing special to be sure. Wait staff was in jeans and t-shirts. Best was to come.

food - excellent. salad, pasta and pizza. The salad was fresh with homemade dressing. A green leaf mixture of lettuce with tomato brussel sprouts. Not cheap at $5 but excellent. Pizza was a build your own cheese, mushroom and sausage. The crust was excellent - very crunchy on the bottom with a hand breaded crust.

service - better than other reviewers. We had three people serving us. One person seated us, one person kept up with drinks and the third managed food. All stopped multiple times throughout the meal to make sure we had everything needed.

“Great pizza...terrible service!”
Reviewed January 4, 2014

Pasta served within 20 minutes of ordering. Then waited 1 hour for pizza ordered at same time. This disjointed service made for a miserable experience for our party of 3 adults and 4 children.
We've been great fans of Taos Pizza Out Back for over 10 years. But, service has been poor 7/10 times over the last 3-4 years.
Great pizza!!! But, jeez!

“Less wait this visit”
Reviewed January 3, 2014

The pizza was excellent as was the salad. This was our second visit and we will return again. If they are busy expect a wait.

“Best Pizza in Taos”
Reviewed January 1, 2014

Definitely the best pizza in Taos! Lots of varieties sold by the (huge) slice. Great crust. Nice selection of beers. Friendly service. Reasonable prices. Parking can be a challenge on busy nights.
