The alley cantina is located in a very historical building off the Taos plaza. The staff was very friendly and made good food suggestions. The food was reasonably priced, the portions were more than adequate. Live music on Tues, too.

I chose the Alley Cantina because I could get a 4 oz. green chile cheeseburger here and not have to whale on a whole half pound of meat. The portion was perfect, the fries were delicious, and the people-watching was outstanding. On the comeback list.

Food in Taos is good. The restaurants offer a variety of food choices at moderate prices. This spot served 18 of us in a private room.

This place was pretty cool. The building seems authentic New Mexico adobe style and houses a bar and restaurant. The food was very good and seemed a great opportunity to sample some New Mexican style food. Me and my husband would definately go back.

From the East coast visiting family in Colorado. Spent the day before in Santa Fe and went to Taos the next day. Somewhat disappointed. Taos does not compare. Saw The Alley Cantina and thought it looked interesting. The minute I opened the door I knew...More
