Dinner in Taos

Going for a 3 day NM ride over the weekend. Tomorrow night will be in Taos. Have a hankering for some NM Red Chili. Suggestions for a dinner place please :)

Saturday we'll hit El Rito for Breakfast/Lunch and some green chili :)

My wife LOVES the caribe version of their red, I like the regular, either way good stuff, but if you're on the patio and hear sirens, duck.

A good friend will take you trail riding, an ADV friend will double back and say, "how did you get down there?"

Thanks! Sounds like Orlandos is the way to go.

Since you'll be parched after the red chili, head over to Taos Mesa Brewery- they'll probably have a band.

Yep, good brews, food & tunes. Owners are great folks!

Another vote for Orlando's. Another good place, though I can't remember the name is across hwy from Old Martina's Hall in Ranchos de Taos, right next to the church...

Looks like a cool place. We were planning on parking the bikes back at the hotel in town and hitting the Adobe bar after dinner.

Orlando's was awesome. Worth the wait for seating :)

Steak and Chili Relleno smothered in Chili Caribe and Green Chili. After sampling the regular red and the caribe, I went with the caribe. The red was good, the caribe was beyond good.



After dinner we checked into our room and headed to the square for some drinks and music at the Adobe Bar, then the Alley Cantina.

Stopped in El Rito the next day for lunch at Farolito's. Green chili smothered breakfast burrito. Hope I don't look too excited.




Finished up the day in Chama after making a loop through the Jemez mountains. Had carne adovada at the high country restaurant, smothered in red chili. Not as good as the last two chili stops, but decent. Always like hanging out at the high country bar though :)

Ranchos Plaza Grill, unlikely as that may seem.....

There used to be a really nice restaurant south, outside of town to the east of the main road. You drove into what seemed to be a residential area of scattered homes, and there was a very nice (i.e. $100 per person) restaurant hidden in there with a great view of the hills off to the west.

Is it still there? And if so, anyone remember the name of it?

That was the Stakeout, and it is closed. We don't have a really good steakhouse anymore.

Yep, the wife and I ate there 2 weekends ago for our anniversary. Great ingredients, great preparation. They actually did a great job cooking the antelope that evening. Just about perfect. We would defiantly go back again.

Odd as it may be, I recommend a stop at Taos Pizza Out Back near the North end of town.

El Rito? Like along highway 554, off of 84, between Abiquiu and Ojo Caliente as the crow flies? I didn't think there was anything in that little town - at all. Must be some other El Rito.
