El Taoseno Restaurant is a great place for a quick, simple family dinner. We were looking for a place to eat dinner after getting checked into the hotel. The desk clerk suggested El Taoseno restaurant not too far from the Comfort Inn. From the outside,...More

The interior, decor, and ambiance are lacking, but that's not important to me if the food and prices and service deliver. This place falls far below the standard for local New Mexican food, and we're parttime residents here in Taos so we should know. The...More

I have to say that I am surprised by the low rating for this restaurant. We were pleasantly surprised by the food and service. We went on a Sunday morning, when many other Taos restaurants were closed, and the place was packed. Amazingly, we were...More

Burritos are good. Rice is basically Rice-a-Roni. Disappointing.

Stay away! We just moved here, and we experienced the worst customer service so far in Taos. That is saying a lot since good customer service in this town is very rare. We have found the locals (called "Taosenos") here to be unfriendly and rude,...More

I choose the taoseno for 2 simple reasons: 1) it was near my hotel and 2) the parking lot was full. When I entered the restaurant I had high hopes. The furniture was dated, most of the faces were hispanic and it was seat yourself....More
