Great New Mexican style food! I've been many times (with various groups) and everyone has always loved the food. They can make anything on the menu gluten free, including the Chile Relleno! I love the veggie combo plate, but the specials tend to be really good too!

Nice little find for lunch, we sat on the patio . Waiter was very nice and attentive. You should definitely order the Chiles rellenos!

We visited this spot on the recommendation of a local business owner, and it is spot on. I am still yearning for the tacos I had here. Carnitas.
The service was a little bit slow, but they were crowded and realistically, people have unrealistic expectations sometimes about how long it takes to prepare real food, because they don't cook!
I loved the place and I'll eat here again. I did notice locals were eating here. That's always a good sign.

The ONLY authentic Mexican food restaurant in Taos. The mole is awesome and occasionally they have cochinita pibil. The service is genuine and great. I can't recommend enough. The inside seating is quaint, old and cool. The outside seating in the summer is perfect. Location doesn't get better.

Ignore the others, and don't pay any attention to the outside, or even the dust on the walls. You came here to eat, not sleep. You're likely not to venture in, unless someone tells you . . . then it is not to be missed. Sure, it's very small, very old, very dusty, very a lot of things . . . including very good. That simple.
