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The restaurant section compared the bar seating area is poorly decorated with outdated plastic tablecloths.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.

We had high hopes after seeing some of the reviews on here, but they were quickly dashed upon arrival at the restaurant. The chips and salsa were cold and pre-packaged and I could have gotten better from the grocery store. I ordered a strawberry daiquiri because on the menu it said that it was a mix of strawberries and sugar... More

My wife and I visited El Rialto in the wonderfully historic and funky town of Las Vegas, New Mexico. Upon entering this restaurant the customer has a choice of sitting in the restaurant itself or one of two adjacent bars that serve alcohol and provide food cooked at El Rialto. We went to the adjacent Borracho's bar, which served delicious... More

This restaurant had high ratings and I was expecting fabulous food. The service was slow and the food was not hot. The margaritas were good however. Would definitely make sure there is not an event on site. I believe there was a wedding party in the adjacent building and I have a feeling the staff was tied up with the... More

We stopped here for dinner one night because the restaurant we were hoping to go to was closed. I wish we had gone somewhere else. The food is fine. Service ok. We've been here several times but hope to try something else next time we're in Las Vegas.
