Restaurant details

If you are ordering for a family it can get very expensive if you chose to eat here. Although the food is delicious and filling as well as tasty and the chile is actually hot!

I have gotten almost all of there menu options and although some of them are not up to my expectations the breakfast burritos and the taco fries are always worth it.

Although I do not like the fact that every time I come over I always see Alice yelling and being rude to her employee's, as well as unfair I have worked food service before and her attitude is enough to make me not want to come back.

Mike & Alice owned the Espanola Tastee-Freez years ago. We drop in every Friday evening for their burgers, Tacos or Green Chili Cheeseburger. They only have a few tables but we've always found a place to sit and enjoy a great meal. They recently started offering beer on tap.

Remembering this restaurant from a previous visit to Taos, I was eager to return. The food is tasty with generous portions and reasonable prices. The pastry counter has a lot of variety, again with good prices and generous sizes. Whether for a meal, just a dessert or both, this is a great place to visit.

On your way to Taos via highway 68, you definitely want to stop in Velarde (just north of Espanola) to experience the great Mexican food here at Michael's. If you didn't already know about it, one might just drive by this mini mart/gas station. Puruse the menu for a wide variety of Mexican food dishes. My favorites are the tamales smothered in red sauce and the green chile cheeseburger. Friendly staff & causal atmosphere make your stop at Michael's a perfect pit stop as you travel north.
