Very quiet when we were here for lunch. Bartender was doing everything - making drinks, waiting tables. Service was businesslike but fast and friendly. Good green and red chiles and Buzz Margaritas. A few TV screens scattered around for those who want to watch the games. Pool table and separate lounge area.

Five years in a row coming to Taos now. For skiing and just hanging out afterwards to kick back, relax and enjoy what Taos is really all about. Outstanding service where the waiters & waitress treat you like family. Don't miss the fried mushrooms. Right off Taos Historic square alley. Always a joy to walk in every year. Don't wait for ski season! It's great all year round. House Margaritas best ever!

Loved the relaxed atmosphere at the Cantina. They serve food also and have bands playing alot of nights. It seems where the locals go for fun...and good place to meet them. Pool Table, too.

We have eaten several times over the years at the Alley Cantina, food was always good as I remember because we keep going back, never left a review until this trip. We stayed in Taos for a get away after the loss of our best friend our doggy. We were within walking distance to the Cantina which was good as we needed to drown our sorrows. Our bartender I believe his name was Mark was really understanding as he too rememberd his loss 3 yrs ago. All in all he gave us great drinks great service and made us feel special, the place was hoppin Friday evening which raised our spirits.Thanks to Mark and the Alley cantina We'll be back!

Cute restaurant, good food. Service was a bit lax, but the food made up for it. Fairly extensive menu items for the picky eater, too!
