    Charlies Bakery & Cafe: Breakfast Anytime in Las Vegas, NM

    by rexvaughan Written Jul 24, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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.

    A well satisfied group

    Rancho de Chimayo: Prickly Pear Lemonade

    by rexvaughan Updated Jul 21, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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

    by rexvaughan Written Jul 13, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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!

    by rexvaughan Updated Jul 13, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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

    by Easty Written Jun 19, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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

    by frantz Written Sep 25, 2003

    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...

    by salway Written Aug 26, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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.

    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.

    Cafe Tazza: coffee and ice cream

    by Katmosphere Written Sep 5, 2006

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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.
