A little spicy, but if you like spicy, great food and service. We ate outside under the colorful umbrellas and felt very festive and blessed.

We've been coming here for about 10 years when we are in town. Always great New Mexican food. They have great patio for dining as well.

Visited Orlando's recently after​ being away for several years. They used to have the best red caribe sauce anywhere. Now it's not on the menu. In fact there is nothing I found that rose above three stars. The old Orlando's is gone, I guess.

This little spot has delightful charm and delicious food. It is a local hot spot. We enjoyed fajitas, fresh guacamole, good beer and excellent service.

Service was great, food was delicious. Shrimp enchilada was so good, lots of shrimp, flavors so bright and not muddled. Loved the beans and salad on the side. Enjoyed the sangria too!

Orlando's is OK, but rather overrated (hence the "3" rating). Often there is too much cheese (better to note "hold the cheese" -- you will still get some). also, quite loud. Again, this place, regardless of reputation, is only average -- and I've eaten there...More

We enjoyed the food, the Los Colores combo with three enchiladas, chicken, beef and cheese was delicious. Just the right amount of spice. Try the Frozen Avocado Pie.

This place is excelllent all the way around- service, food, pastries. On Sundays it is filled with locals and the lively conversations. People arrive and stare into the pastry display with awe.

Recommended by several folks at our hotel. Met all expectations. Try the "Los Colores" and the Avocado Pie for desert. I even bought a T-shirt. Very casual indoor or outdoor. A must.

It's not. We were bummed! We found other restaurants that are. Bella's, Martyr's & La Cueva. Good Luck. We're coming down with our pooches in June 2017. Also, I read that Bent's Cafe allows dogs on the patio.
