Somewhat hidden within a lodging/shopping complex, this two level restaurant was nearly empty when I ate at about 11 am. I just missed breakfast so ordered a small plate of tacos and a beer. There were hardly any people in the restaurant so service was good. The food was prepared quickly and was quite tasty for a ski resort. I... More

If you don't mind sitting and being ignored when the restaurant is not busy, but you'll get a great meal, this is your place. If you don't mind being motioned to a seat and having a menu thrown down in front of you without a word being spoken, wait 30mins to have a server come take your order, and then... More

The Frito Pie, Tim's Burger and Navajo Taco were delicious. Highly recommend this place for at least one meal during you visit to Taos Ski Valley!

We were hoping to find some good New Mexican style food on our ski trip to Taos. We went to Tim's Stray Dog on a recommendation from our lodging management. We had a group of 12 and arrived at 5pm. Glad we got there when we did, so we could all sit together, as it got really crowded soon after.... More

It's a ski lift type bar and to say it has typical bar food would do it a disservice. The food was better than typical. Although the night we went it was a Monday night football game night and it took quite some time for our order to come out. The kitchen was slow. At least our waitress acknowledged it... More

On Christmas day, with a substantial bill already, and looking forward to a some good food. I was asked to vacate my table to make way for tourist that the staff felt they could make more money off of. I eat or drink here more than 300 days a year and I have never left a tip of less than... More

Have nachos, brisket tacos, green salad, green chile stew, brisket plate, any or all of the above and your family will be happy campers. Green chile cheeseburger looks amazing but we didn't try it since we had them in town last night. Breakfast must be great here too. Busy place and great waitress! This will be our go to place...

The food was very good and plenty of it! Also they make great Bloody Mary's and margaritas. It is a small place with a bar and picnic tables...very casual and relaxed. There is an upstairs with more tables but as we were there off season that was not opened. Service was quick and staff was friendly.

Thank Joanne P
