My husband loved the blue corn cheese enchiladas! It was maybe the best he had in Taos. My hamburger was good and friends enjoyed the relleno. Service was fine and amazed it is the oldest building in Taos. Dog friendly patio a plus!

Good happy hour specials for beer and nachos. Margarita specials aren't quite as good of a deal, but not bad. Very old interesting building on an alley a few feet back off the plaza. Don't wait to be served at your table, just go up...More

We were there on a quiet night and had our pick of where to sit. Great food. Good service. A slice of old Taos worth a visit.
