Read about this restaurant prior to our trip to New Mexico. Based on the ratings and James Beard award, it became a destination. Seated promptly in the sun room which was pleasant with the light and plants. Our servers were attentive, knowledgeable of the menu and kept us on their radar. Ordered combinación plates-traditional and picante. Both well prepared, attractive... More

The restaurant was nice, the food was great but service was lacking. Maybe it was the time of day that we stopped (about 3 pm) on our way to Los Alamos or the rain storm that occurred just before we arrived? Service was slow and our drink order never did arrive and we never got an explanation from our server.

We stopped for lunch while on a drive on the High Road to Taos, to seek out Hatch chilis and visit El Sanctuario de Chimayo before a visit to Santa Fe. What a pleasant surprise. We were seated in the light sunroom and ordered the Carne Adovada Pequena with posole and rice and the Shredded Beef Enchiladas served with green... More

Five of us, including a local couple from Espaniola who recommended the establishment, made reservations the same day and enjoyed a wonderful dinner here during a week night in early March. I ordered the Pollo al Estilo Chimayó, while my wife opted for the Chile Rellenos. Both were excellent, and priced very fairly. Everything was very authentic and flavorable, including... More

Milestone birthday meal recommended by a local Santa Fean and following our tour of Sactuario Chimayo nearby. This place is an icon of the area and NM traditions. We started with chips and salsa: so fresh and spicy! Then we shared an assorted plate that included: beef taco, cheese enchilada, pork tamale and chill renello, all topped with green chile... More

This restaurant was a bit out of the way from where we were staying but we loved it so much that we made two trips out there, through the beautiful countryside, just because it was really that great! The sopapilla breakfast burrito and the dinner burrito were absolutely amazing! The staff was kind and helpful, from the first person you... More

Lunch was so delicious! The pork in the hard shell tacos was well seasoned and tender. Tamales with green chili sauce were comforting and traditional and the beans on the side a perfect complement. After all that, we couldn't pass up the flan which was a perfect end to wonderful lunch. And the portions were generous and price inexpensive.

The long driveway from the road to the Spanish hacienda style restaurant feels like the entrance to a rural country club-but don't be intimidated. The prices are reasonable (Tamales $8.75;Chile Relleno $9.75; Carne Adovada for lunch $9.50) and it is located in a quaint and beautiful setting not far from the miraculous Sanctuario. I had lunch alone during the busy... More

We've eaten at Rancho for many years and unfortunately the last couple times have been disappointing. Today was the worst! Dirty, disgusting napkin stuck on floor, under chair, had to ask bus boy to remove it, waitress was VERY UNattentive! Saw her outside on her cell phone...I had to actually get up and try to find a water refill, the... More
