Visited Red River with a large group of 15. We all had dinner on a weekend after making a reservation. Our waitress was named Liz. She was fantastic! (Great attitude, very personable) she got 8 different tickets perfectly. The food came quickly and all at once. The food was okay but very bland and not seasoned well. We tried fajitas,... More

My husband brought me here as a treat for dinner. The service was very friendly. The food was slow to come out, which was no big deal as we were in no hurry. Unfortunately, we both found it bland and flavorless. I know not to go too far from Texas for good Mexican food, I just didn't expect this to... More

Love the food and best service! Wanna night out for dinner? Nothing beats Sundance! My family and I travel all the way from Nashville just to eat at Sundance.

We have had rather a great deal of snow over the past few days. Our first visit to Sundance in several years was a real delight. From the greeting by the owner, to the excellent service by the staff, really delightful food, well presented, the whole experience was wonderful. We will not wait long before we revisit Sundance.

The restaurant opens at 5PM. We had reservations for 5 for 5 people. We had to wait to be seated. It took forever to get our tea. The waitress was good and was running like crazy but they were understaffed. We did not get our food until 5:50! It was ok but just ok and not worth the wait or... More

Our group of 10 enjoyed dinner. It wasn't anything "out of this world," but it was enjoyable. The staff was very friendly and attentive. Several of our party mentioned that they wished the food had more seasoning. Sopapilla's are a real treat at the end of the meal.

We ate at Sundance and we're not impressed. I gave this place 2 stars because my husband liked his burrito and the sopapillas were decent at end of meal. My daughter and I ordered the chicken and steak fajitas and they were the worst we've ever had. No seasoning what so ever and the steak was so rubbery my daughter... More

They opened at 5pm arrived at 505 pm. Just a 20 min wait, not bad. Packed house. Overheard a Lady talking with Owner/manager how they drive from Taos to eat there. High expectations. Maybe we are spoiled in Oklahoma, but this food was Barely passable. Almost an hour before it arrived (expected) Fajitas (combo) tasted Like they were dropped on... More

This place was really nice and I enjoyed the food tremendously! Someone told me it was more "TexMex" but I thought it was closer to New Mexican Cuisine. I got the stuffed sopapilla and it was wonderful! The red chile was tasty, not too hot, but great flavor. The staff was attentive and even though it was very busy, we... More
