Very good and authentic. I have take Spaniards there and they liked the food and commented that it was good basic food. I eat there a couple times a month, it is my most frequent restaurant I visit in Taos. Taco salads are great. Steaks are Mexican style with a unique taste. The green and red sauces are flavorful, not... More

Just go up to the counter, place your order, and take a number to place on your table. The food will be delivered shortly. No server who needs to be tipped. This place never disapoints. The quality is good and the price is right.

We always try to eat at the Guadalajara Grill in El Prado. We like it better than the one on the south side of Taos. Good Mexican food. Lots of shrimp dishes. Real Coca-Cola from Mexico. Next time, my husband and I will share a plate--so much food. the Chile Rellanos were terrific.

I am not an expert on Mexican Food but this was a great little restaurant. I ordered the Diablo Shrimp and it was delish! The outside of the building is nothing to write home about but it was clean and well maintained insides. The staff was friendly and the prices were reasonable. Check it out if you're in Taos!

We ate here twice during our week stay in Taos. Enjoyed the food both times. Chile rellanos, tostados, green chili enchilados were all excellent. Some of the best rice I have had. Fast friendly service. Seems to be a local favorite as it was always busy.

Finally, a place with service. Not your ordinary fare in Taos, but I guess they try harder because it's just north of Taos. Had the chicken enchiladas and a real Mexican Coke. Food was good, but a little greasy and over-priced. Was almost a five and would have been if lunch hadn't cost $15...

This is the first Mexican restaurant I tried after moving here. It's more Mexican/American but the food is good and reasonably priced. The service is excellent.

You'll be glad you stopped in for a bite - fast, large portions, authentic taste, and great prices are the hallmark for this grill. You won't find fancy dining or linen tablecloths here, but you will find a heck of a selection of true Mexican food with plenty of flavor.

Don't be fooled by the exterior of this place! It doesn't look like much, but the food is fantastic and the service was fun and friendly

Good food- I had the beef tacos and my husband likes the Azteca quesadillas. The refried beans were excellent. We had the chips, salsa and guacamole to start - definitely recommended. The ambiance is lacking. It is a big open room with fluorescent lighting, and you order at the counter.
