Mexican food was very good, sopapillas included with meal. Service was friendly, attentive, with a short wait. Ricky's is small, but worth your time.

Neat new happy hour spot recently opened. Along with cheap wine ($3) during 3-6 happy hour has delicious surpise tasties like the fried cheese polenta. Yum.

Came here for lunch and was blown away by the number of choices served all day. Everything seems to be homemade and is completely delicious. Seems to be a local favorite which is always a good sign.

Average. Lunch time, half empty. We ordered 2 of the specials and a couple of menu items. Taos burger had a lot of mustard on it (daughter hates mustard). Enchilada ok. Not memorable at all.

We were looking for a quick lunch before heading to the touristy Taos downtown. This place had great food and was a very friendly place with many locals.

Went there for dinner on a souhwest trip this September. The restaurant is small and has a local flavor in terms of stuff in restaurant. Had mexican food. It was average compared to other restaurants that I have gone through in the southwest (Gallup, Grants, etc.). The service was pretty good except they ran out of a special that was... More

Great New Mexican food. Great prices. Local favorite.I love the soft shell chicken tacos. Authentic red chili. Small dining area. We come here almost every day when we are in town.

Small little joint, great service......the food is good, not excellent (hence the 4 rating). This is one of many small places along Paseo Del Pueblo Sur, in almost every one of them, and this is no exception, you can get good food. My only issue is the price.....just like gas around these parts, everything is just a little more expensive!... More

On a 3 week road trip of NM, this was definitely one of the food highlights. We came in early on a Sunday evening, it was still quite empty and we got such a warm friendly welcome. Later in the evening it was full, lots of locals popping in, talking, getting food to go, obviously a place people love coming... More
