A review we saw said they had the best green chili in Taos. It was mediocre. No air conditioning. Waited over 10 minutes for chips and salsa. Salsa was obviously store bought.

Ricky's has a unique atmosphere and some of the best breakfast and lunch food in Taos. Both the Taos Omelette and the Taos Burger are excellent. New Mexican chilies are used in both, but the result is excellent flavor without too much heat!

On our Christmas stay in Taos, my 10yr old son wanted to take a "Wake-Up Walk" we ended up at Ricky's. Happy we did. They are so kind, including the locals eating here also. Great food, great service, super friendly staff!
