This is a go to spot for many locals. The food is good, the service excellent and the atmosphere is great. No margueritas - always a bummer! I had enchiladas that where very good. I will return here no problem.

Don’t blink or you might just miss this gem. Great little restaurant with friendly knowledgeable staff. Since it was a beautiful day we sat on the patio. Fajitas are excellent and the cocktails are wonderful.

Fifth trip to Taos and Orlando's tiger shrimp burrito is a must have for me. Served hot; green chile had a kick; the shrimp was in and atop the burrito and a decent amount. This was the first time I've ordered the frozen avocado pie...texture...More
