Charlies Bakery & Cafe: Breakfast Anytime in Las Vegas, NM
This little place has a great menu strongly, but not exclusively, geared toward Mexican cuisine. It is not fancy although attractive and the staff very accommodating and helpful. Their bakery items are prepared on the premises and our friends report that they are wonderful. They also have the full spread of coffee and cappucino drinks. They are open 7 days a week but only from 6:30 am to 5:30 pm.
Favorite Dish: They serve their breakfast dishes all day, so I had eggs and pancakes - quite delicious. The coffee was excellent.
Rancho de Chimayo: Prickly Pear Lemonade
This remote restaurant is deservedly highly rated - some even place it in the top 100 in the US. Its dinining areas are all well lighted from the outside or actually on the patio. It is a very inviting and pleasant establishment with a very professional staff.
Favorite Dish: I had been eating Mexican food for several days so opted for trout almondine which was very well prepared and tasty. My wife and our 2 friends had New Mexican cuisine (I don't remember exactly what) and alll said it was delicious. We all had "prickly pear lemonade" which is made with cactus and found it light and refreshing. It is one of our friends' favorite places in NM. It was all topped off with sopapillas and honey - wonderful!
Ogelvies Grill and Bar: Great view, good food
This is a very popular watering hole as the balcony overlooks the town's plaza. It is indeed a great place for lunch, a late afternoon drink or dinner. The food is mostly Mexican cuisine and is quite good.
Orlando's: Try the Avacado Pie!
This little place does a booming business among the locals - always a good recommendation. It has a great ambience - dining on the patio in warm weather is a great experience. It is rated in various places as one of the top 5 in Taos. Entrees are generally less than $10 and the portions are large and freshly prepared.
Favorite Dish: I was very dubious about avacado pie, but one of our group ordered it and let us sample it. It was delicious and tasted very much like a really good key lime pie.
Reservations and credit cards are not accepted.
Best Western Kachina Lodge: Best Western Kachina Lodge
To be honest, the steak I had was not that very good. They didn't even leave butter for my baked potato. One of the rare disaster of a meal that I had. Do yourself a favor and go downtown for dinner. The breakfast buffet here wasn't that very good either. Either I picked the wrong time to be here or someone needs a lesson on food quality.
Anywhere in town
We just went into a resraurant because we were hungry and had some local food, it was great.
Unfortunatly i don't remember the name but you're spoilt for choice , look around or ask anybody local and they point out where to get good food.
Out Back Pizza has great food...
Out Back Pizza has great food and the ecletic group of people that work and patronize it are fun to observe. The building nearest the road used to be a video rental and they started a tiny pizza joint 'out back'. The video store is kaput but the restaurant has expanded intables and menu items.
Fred's place: Fred's place
It's authenticity. According to my guide book the owner spent months researching traditional recipes before opening the restaurant.
Favorite Dish: Chili, refried beans and all the other good Mexican dishes. Washed down with a Corona of course.
Taos Pizza Out Back: The best pizza!
The crusts are hand made.
This is probably the best pizza we've ever had!
You've got to try it...
Favorite Dish: Southwest pizza - sun dried tomatoes, sausage, green chile.
Cafe Tazza: coffee and ice cream
This little gem is a laid back kind of coffee shop with some outside tables as well as indoors.
Favorite Dish: I could not resist the ice cream here--I tried the Lavender flavor and it was scrumptious.
The Apple Tree: We REALLY wanted to try this one!
We really wanted to give this place a try when we visited here but at the time it was too crowded and we were too hungry to wait...
Favorite Dish: We would have tried this place if we had come back another day.
Michael's Kitchen: Great breakfasts
This is obviously a favorite of the locals. We had breakfast here every day and each day the place was packed!
Favorite Dish: Huevos Rancheros
Ok we all know what kind of food you can get here but check out the building itself :-)
Favorite Dish: #3 with Sprite :-P
