“Amazingly delicious!”
Reviewed 25 July 2014 via mobile

The food was absolutely delicious, the service was excellent, and the place was absolutely sparkling clean! My wife and I both had the chicken enchilada, which was served hot and was extremely tasty. Served on blue corn tortillas with posole and whole pinto beans, with a New Mexican flavor, it was spicy but not overwhelmingly so. My wife says it was the best Mexican meal ever! We will be back. Although the exterior may not be impressive, you will love this place!!

“Home style BBQ away from home!”
Reviewed 22 July 2014 via mobile

Ordered a BBQ Combo: Brisket, Chicken, and Ribs.
Whatever you do, stick with the Pork Ribs! This has got to be a specialty along with your choice of BBQ sauce. It is absolutely delicious!!

“Great family owned restaurant with yummy food.”
Reviewed 7 July 2014

I would much rather support a family owned restaurant than a chain. This wonderful place serves such tasty food you want to eat there for that alone. Big selection including steak, burgers, BBQ, salads etc. The other bonus is they serve cocktails.
We come to Taos on a regular basis so have tried many of the restaurant & would HIGHLY recommend trying this one.

“not so good”
Reviewed 5 July 2014

Read the reviews and stopped for a late dinner. The chicken was so dry, forgot the bread. The honey bbq sauce was to spicy for me. Maybe the mexican food is better. As far as bbq I wasnt impressed.

“Wonderful surprise in Taos!”
Reviewed 28 June 2014

Forget the pretentious, expensive steakhouses and restaurants up by the plaza. This family owned gem is wonderful and affordable! My husband had delicious steak and shrimp, and I had a delicious BBQ Children plat. The restaurant also has New Mexican Cuisine. The staff is friendly, the service is good, and the price is right. Try out this restaurant for a nice dinner. We will be back the next time we are in Taos!
