We arrived here at 8:30 pm after a local concert, and the patio still had a few available tables. We had seen numerous positive reviews of Orando's and were not disappointed. We had traditional New Mexico dishes, and enjoyed them thoroughly. This place closes at 9 pm on weekdays, so don't be late.

First thing we did, hungry and just pulled into Taos from the north. A little after five opening time and parking lot full. Got a nice shaded table outside, great weather to be outside. Friendly fast service. They do charge ($4) for chips and salsa, but worth every penny. Dinner was great, I had a chili relleno with grilled shrimp, best meal of trip! Wife had a chicken burrito as big as her dinner plate, could only eat half.

Funky laid-back Taos atmosphere, colorful adobe, excellent cuisine, Orlando's has it all.I think their blue corn enchiladas are the best in Northern New Mexica and that is saying a lot. Prices are very reasonable. Parking is limited and you may have to wait for a table, but well worth the wait.

As a group of five experienced female travelers, we visit Taos at least once a year eager to check out the shops, galleries, and restaurants. A shop manager in La Veta, Colorado told us to give Orlando’s a try and we were happy we followed her advice.

On a beautiful summer day we sat outside under shady trees plus an umbrella and received prompt, efficient service. Each of us ordered something different and none of us was dissatisfied. We will return next year!

I wanted to experience the real New Mexico cuisine and was directed to Orlando's. What a find. LOcal, comfortable and delicious. I ordered the blue corn enchiladas and was more than satisfied. Enjoy!
