“Yum Yum Ice Cream”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

I took some friends visiting from out of town here. We went to Arroyo Seco for the sole purpose of getting ice cream at the Taos Cow. We were not disappointed. Everyone in our party seemed to enjoy the ice cream, and it was nice to sit outside by the river.

I totally appreciate the spacious, clean restrooms, and the server was very gracious about giving us samples of a variety of ice cream flavors.

“Ice Cream”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

Had a Mexican chocolate ice cream - single scope cone. YUM! Great spot in Arroyo Seco. The restaurant serves breakfast and lunch, as well as take out food.

“Disappointed”
Reviewed 24 April 2014

he ice cream was only so-so, and the selection was meager. We didn't try any of the food. Cute girl behind the counter, if that is a reason to go there.

“More than just great ice cream!”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

The ice cream is great! But so are the breakfast burritos and the breakfast sandwich. You can get coffee here too. The place has free WiFi and electrical outlets so you can plug in your laptop. I love to linger here.

“Mostly Disappointed”
Reviewed 21 February 2014

I dined here for a late lunch and ordered the Gyros sandwich (minus pita bread and chips). The best part was the bed of lettuce, feta cheese, and side of Thai coleslaw - those items were fresh and well prepared. The gyros meat, however, was a disaster - it was thin, luke warm, and cooked like bacon (?!) so the small portion size for the price was probably a relief. I was pleased by the female manager's response when I offered my feedback after the meal - her manner was
thoughtful and kind, offering a complimentary mini scoop of ice cream. The ice cream flavors looked inviting yet the raspberry scoop I had was nothing extraordinary (Note: I have been
spoiled by ice cream from the Oberweiss Dairy in the Chicago area).
