Love this family favorite spot! Very reasonable prices and large servings. Order the chips and salsa- amazing. Kids loved their food. I'd say one of the better places in town since we went to almost all of them on our week long stay. Also good casual vibe and very full- always a good sign at a restaurant!

Bright colors and fun art decorate this restaurant. I wanted to try the popular Burrito plate; I ordered the vegetarian- burrito with green and red salsas on top. It was delicious! It came with cucumber pico de gallo and I requested the pozole instead of fries. It's a big plate, you will probably have left-overs.

My husband and I had Delicious Enchilada dinner at Orlando's! The beer mugs were super frosty and the flan was too die for! This place has all the Authentic New Mexico flavors which we love! We really enjoyed the manager/waiter Felicia, she was so friendly and professional.

Came here after the owner at Bella's went psycho on us simply because we inquired about why we hadn't received our food (tables seated later had received their food- coincidentally the same food we had ordered). After the mentally unstable owner at Bella's chased us out of the restaurant, we found ourselves at Orlandos. Orlando's was great- restaurant was busy... More

Highly recommend!!! After skiing in Taos, stopped in for dinner. As with most great eating places in Santa Fe and Taos there was a wait but the restaurant had a fire pit going outside and heaters. The food was flavorful, delicious, and we had excellent service. We had the Los Colores( blue corn enchiladas with 3 different sauces), reina, chili... More

Very good Mexican place. Very popular so expect a wait if you have a larger group. It’s small but really nice inside. Staff is very friendly and the food was really good. A bit spicier than I thought and a little different from Mexican food I have had before and that is a good thing as it was a little... More

This was a very popular spot at 2:30 pm on a Tuesday afternoon between Christmas and New Years. The restaurant appears to be quite small but there are comfortable, warm areas to sit while we waited 15 minutes for a table. The food was reasonably priced and hearty. The service was exceptionally good.

Had a great experience at Orlando's... Cute little place with super good customer service, great beer and super good new Mexican food. Probably the best shredded beef burrito I've ever had. My wife loved her meal as well. We will go back again. Highly recommended.

Thank royboy7777
