We were debating between The Burger Stand and Taos Mesa Brewing. Decided on the Burger
Stand because of the Burgers on the website. Should have known it wasn't going to be good when they ran our of duck fries, and several of the beers that they had listed on tap. However, we order and waited over an hour for our order. Finally asked where our order was and they didn't know what we ordered. Got our refund and left. Went to Taos Mesa Brewing and were served immediate and their pizza was amazing.

Would not go again. We ordered to go and went to pick up.

We had ordered a burger, salad, and a basket of fries. The receipt on the bag was correct with our order description and we checked to make sure we had three items in the bag before leaving.

But after we left and sat down to eat it, it was clear they forgot to include the salad dressing and the burger was completely different than the one ordered. The burger was okay and the chicken in the salad was dry regardless if there had been dressing. Fries are not included with most of the burgers and the $6 basket of fries was barely more than a side of fries one would expect with a burger.

While the food was disappointing, the lack of adherence to COVID guidelines stood out. A sign out front said masks were required to enter but 2/3 of the employees in the crowded restaurant, including the waiter delivering plates of food, had their masks around their neck instead of over their mouth and nose. Without a mask on, the waiter was yelling back to the kitchen directly over the top of the food waiting to go out.

After being screwed on our dinner reservations at a high-end Taos eatery on Labor Day, our hotel's shuttle driver suggested The Burger Stand. I admit I was skeptical, but what a pleasant find! The food was delicious, the beer selection rather remarkable, and the service was incredibly fast and friendly. The outdoor dining option was perfect, and the place was packed with individuals, couples and families, a reflection of its popularity with both locals and tourists. Thanks for saving the day, Burger Stand! We'll definitely be back!

You think they might be hand-cut fries, but no.
Made the mistake of ordering fish and chips, many miles from the sea. The fish was still frozen in the middle and so inedible.
