Stopped in here based on a referral from a friend. The blue corn enchilada combo, one cheese, one chicken and one beef with combination red and green sauce were very good. The price is affordable and also appropriate for families on a budget. If you...More

We always have at least one meal here on every trip to New Mexico. All dishes homemade, delicious, and friendly staff who welcome locals and visitors warmly. Tamales, rellenos, and sopaipillas are just as good as childhood memories.

This is one of the restaurants we always visit. This is the place that the locals use. Good food, generous portions at an affordable price. Family owned with a friendly staff. We found it by chance and have always been glad that we did.

The staff is what really made this place for us. It was a long day, lines out the door for many other restaurants, and we were just tired, grumpy, exhausted, and HANGRY. Our server was so excited to share his favorite dishes with us, and...More

El Taoseno is an honest restaurant. It is not fancy. Does not charge fancy prices. What it is is a classic New Mexican "diner". This is a family run spot, provides good quality food at very fair prices. The formula works, and you will find...More
