Had a delicious chicken mole fajita. Delicious mole. Tiny little dinning area, around 6 tables. Fun ambiance and great food.

Did the drive from Santa Fe, based on all these positive reviews. Hands down, the worst food we had while in NM, and we did not eat at any fancy places. The green chili chicken enchiladas were covered in flavorless glop, with no heat whatsoever,...More

From the outside you might be tempted to bypass this special place, but don't. Our server recommended the special and we weren't disappointed, the mole was outstanding. The little bit of spicy was perfect with a cold beer.

A local recommended this cafe for fresh New Mexican food and we enjoyed it so much, we ate here twice during our stay in Taos. Very friendly service, reasonable prices and delicious food! Highly recommend the outside patio during lunch.

My favorite bottled beer! Iced glass and superior tacos. OMG got to go here!!! Looks like a tiny spot but find parking just a little up the street. There is a lovely patio and if you want authentic this is like a history lesson!

This looks like a nothing place from the outside, but was recommended by a local. It has a capacity of about 25 inside and a large elevated deck/patio with more tables outside. They definitely know how to cook. I ordered the Enchaladas de Cameron Enchipotladas...More
