My wife and I eat here nearly every trip. It is close to Tito's gallery who are good friends of ours.

Yummy tacos and attentive service. My daughter got brisket quesadillas, and ate every bite! Clean bathrooms, which are necessary when traveling from Taos to Amarillo.

I got sick after eating here and so will not return. I think it was the refried beans but who knows?

The Rialto, like all of the NM food places in Las Vegas NM is really delicious, stick to your ribs cuisine. The chile is always consistent and delicious and can be really hot at times. You should try the bean chicharron burritos or stuffed sopapillas. If you like enchiladas, then try the pork carnitas ( super tender) they are splendid.Also... More

My first time; my lady's been before and wanted to come back. Chips and salsa were very good; carnitas tacos perfect- plenty of meat, grilled and serves hot with super green chili. We will be back.

Now if you really want some very tasty tacos make sure to stop by the El Rialto in Las Vegas. I love the chicken tacos with "guac". Not sure what her name is in the bar but if you want great service sit in the bar. She is very friendly and wants to make your experience memorable. We always stop... More

Very good restaurant in a lovely little town - and well worth a visit (to both) if you happen to be doing Route 66 and are venturing up to Santa Fe. Our server happily explained the menu and the difference between the various spices (we were novices with Mexican cuisine). Their salsa is hot hot hot...but very tasty! Their chilli... More

Two thumbs down. The combo plate was not good. It was so smothered in red and green chili sauce that the enchilada flavor was overpowered. The beef taco was just Ok because the toppings were processed and not fresh tasting.....reminded me more of fast food like taco bell. My favorite was was the Chile releno, but to be 100% honest,...

The restaurant section compared the bar seating area is poorly decorated with outdated plastic tablecloths. The booth seats are tight, uncomfortable and from the 1970's. The food was just average and not what I was hoping for based on some of the trip advisor reviews I had read. Tuesday is Taco night ...so we tried a beef and pork taco... More

We ate at El Rialto recently and it was real good. I had the chicken chalupas, and husband had the chicken enchilada plate. Everything was really good, and hubby liked the green chile on his enchiladas. Not too hot, just right. Friendly, fast service, and nearby old historic buildings for a picturesque walk after lunch.
