Taos recomendations wanted

  • 7

Will be spending three nights (including a Sunday) in Taos in mid October and was looking for help from fellow hounds for lunch/dinner spots not to be missed. Haven't been there in 12+ years so past experience is not much help.

  1. Orlando's has good Mexican.

    Orlando's Cafe @ 1114 Don Juan Valdez Lane, Taos, NM 575 - 751 - 1450.

    1. Neat bar/restaurant in an alley off the plaza. Funky fun place with outdoor seating and great food.
      I had a bowl of texas red, chili made with brisket. Scrumptious. Seriously a quintessential Taos venue.

      1. Graham's has outstanding breakfast, lunch and dinner in a casual atmosphere. Lambert's is fine dining for dinner only. Michael's is a good restaurant for breakfast, lunch or dinner in a casual setting.

        Graham's Grille @ 106 Cam Del Paseo Pueblo Norte, Taos, NM 575 - 751 - 1350.
        Lambert's @ 309 Paseo Del Pueblo Sur, Taos, NM 575 - 758 - 1009.
        Michael's Kitchen @ 304 Cam Del Paseo Pueblo Norte, Taos, NM 575 - 758 - 4178.

        1. Here is thread I did earlier this year with some ideas:


          1. I don't know if this is too late for you, but there was this place in Rancho, pretty much next to that fabulous pink adobe church. It was a family-run place and it was charming. I still swoon thinking about their tamales.

            And I second the Michael's suggestion. Make sure you have something, anything, with their honey butter.

            1. Orlando's for New Mex. Best I had in New Mexico over a two week trip.
