We eat here at least twice every ski trip. The food is fantastic and has tons of flavor. Get the Black and Blue salad you won't be disappointed.

We had dinner on a weekday evening. Not overly busy and the service was good. It sounds crazy but the chips were a bit stale. However the adult beverages were stiff!!! yummy. Nice selection of meals. I enjoyed the street style tacos without complaint. Heads up, the red chili was a bit warmer than I expected. I didn't find the... More

Perfect spot for a few beers (or cocktails) after our first day on the slopes. We also had some tasty appetizers. I think there is a full menu as well. It was perfectly located between the slopes and the walk to our cars. $3 beer special didn't hurt the wallet either. Very chill place.

Decent Mexican inspired food. Good value for money. Busy vibrant atmosphere and good service. We sat upstairs and it was quieter than downstairs but still fun and busy.

I came here for breakfast and the food was just alright, as the potatoes were not quite done. However, since I liked the casual fun atmosphere, I decided to try it out again for lunch. And I was again disappointed with lunch. The food was edible, but it's not something that I would want again. As I said, the vibe... More

I wouldn't recommend eating here while in Taos. I ate here twice once for breakfast and once for lunch and both times they missed the mark. I would never go back for food. A good place to grab a beer. Ok customer service but the staff has great energy.

On the smaller side, not great for large groups but kid-friendly. Great New Mexican fare but spicy! Beer selection is OK, not expansive. Excellent service.
