I was taken here for my birthday, and had a delicious enchilada plate with blue corn tortillas. Service was great, quick, attentive, but not overbearing. Seating is somewhat limited, but definitely worth the wait.

We very much enjoyed our dinner at Orlando's. The shrimp enchaladas and the chicken burrito was superb, while being reasonably priced. The margaritas, made with agave wine, were smooth tasting and satisfying. Service was attentive without being obtrusive. Highly recommended.

Decent "new mexico" style mexican food at a good price. From what I've tried so far, that style is more spicy to the point where you can't taste the food as much. Orlando's were pretty tasty and service better than most. Outside (with some flies)...More

Here are the things that are great about Orlando's: the service, the beauty of the brightly painted walls and punched tin, the charm of the outdoor seating area and the FOOD. The chile rellenos are very good. The side of hominy and pinto beans was...More

No. Orlandos does not take reservations. It's best to go early because it's very popular.
