The most spicy green chile sauce that I have had in Taos. Great food. Just the free sopaipilla is worth the trip. Located in a historic building from the 1700's next to St. Francis church. No alcohol is served.

This was the best meal we had in Taos! All of the entrees are served with a HUGE sopapilla and honey and they are delicious. We had the chips/salsa/guac which was very tasty. I had the enchiladas and the green chile here was the best I had in Taos, it was not as overly spicy as the other restaurants and... More

We have been coming to Ranchos Plaza Grill for over ten years and have found that it is our favorite for authentic northern New Mexican food. It is consistently good, the service excellent and the setting a real sense of the Taos community. Though we usually get the same thing every time, there is nothing on the menu that we... More

Having grown up in Santa Fe I have had some of the best New Mexican food around. We were excited to try Rancho Plaza Grill from the reviews we read. Let me start with the highlights of the meal. Service was great. Very attentive and prompt. Both the Red and Green Chilie were excellent. The sopapillias were some of the... More

We decided on this restaurant after looking at on-line reviews. We were struggling to decide where to eat in the Taos general area that night (without paying a fortune) and finally picked Ranchos Plaza Grill. Overall, we are not raving as much as some reviews, but it was decent food at a decent price. Located adjacent to the San Francisco... More

We had a bit of a wait, which turned out to be for good reason. Delicious food, warm service, and the most flavorful, authentic New Mexican food we enjoyed on our trip to the state. The sopapillas were wonderful, but so was everything we ate. I wish I could transport myself there right now just to have another taste.

Orlando's used to be our favorite place to eat New Mexican food in Taos until we discovered Ranchos Plaza Grill. The chicken tacos with green chile were delicious. Highly recommend the enchilada plate with shredded beef. The sopaipillas were the best I've every had. The prices were moderate, the atmosphere authentic.

As a local, my family eats here frequently because the food is fresh and authentic New Mexican. Highly recommend the carne adovada (marinated pork in red chili) with sopapillas (large fluffy pieces of bread similar to fry bread). For those of you that aren't up for anything hot, try the Cobb salad--it's one of the best I've ever had. It's... More
