Took my wife here for her birthday. The enchiladas were good but not great. The mole sauce was flavorful. Certainly not "cheap eats" as listed by TripAdvisor. Had read about Chipotle Ice Cream in the reviews, but it was not served with our chocolate cake.

This a very small place, as people have written. On our first visit, two years ago, we had the opportunity to sit inside, close to the kitchen. We very much enjoyed what we had. The very small dining room only has three or four tables....More

My husband & I had lunch here last week after seeing great reviews on TA - wish we would have eaten somewhere else. Compared to everywhere else we ate in Taos, this was the worst by far. I had chicken enchiladas with green & red...More

Based on other reviews, we looked past the small exterior and went in. Glad we did! Great food, and small cozy atomosphere. Not the quickest service, but worth the wait It. Chimichanga was good, and the mole enchiladas were tasty. Kids enjoyed their quesadillas and...More
