Ate here for a late lunch heading to Taos Ski Valley. Not much else was open, and lucky to have come across this restaurant. There were 4 of us and we had the nachos, tamales, huevos rancheros, and the tacos. Everything is homemade, including the...More

On our Christmas stay in Taos, my 10yr old son wanted to take a "Wake-Up Walk" we ended up at Ricky's. Happy we did. They are so kind, including the locals eating here also. Great food, great service, super friendly staff!

If you want a pretentious restaurant keep on moving. If you want great food where the locals eat, then you've got the right place. The stuffed sopapillas were excellent. Really great food.

This tiny restaurant is a local hangout. The stuffed sopapia (?) was wonderful. Another friend ordered chicken fried steak and said it was really good. I would eat here again. The staff were friendly and quick to serve.
