Taos is New Mexico True

¡Buen apetito! All the outdoor activities around Taos result in ravenous appetites. Fortunately, Taos has dozens of restaurants prepared to appease your hunger with top-notch food and drink, whether you’re hankering for a fresh salad with local greens or a juicy green chile cheeseburger. 

If fine dining is your pleasure, let Taos’s classically trained chefs create sophisticated dishes that appeal to both eye and palate. Many Taos restaurants rely on local, organically grown produce, offering fresh greens, herbs, tomatoes, tender green beans, and baby squash. In Taos, we were organic before organic was cool. If you’re in search of heat, Taos’s home style eateries serve up popular local dishes such as tamales, enchiladas, chile rellenos, and posole. Chile can be green or red, hot or mild. If you can’t decide which one to try, ask for “Christmas” and taste the delights of both.

Taos restaurant ambiance is as varied as the cuisine. Savor the atmosphere of an energetic, bustling, open-air kitchen or linger on a shaded garden patio. Dine at an alpine log cabin or a traditional adobe warmed by piñon-blazing fireplaces.

Opportunities abound for the wine and beer connoisseur as well. In addition to several local breweries, distilleries, and wineries with tasting rooms, taprooms, and restaurants of their own, several of our restaurants boast award-winning wine lists and sommeliers ready to help you find the perfect bottle.
