Having heard great reviews (those on TripAdvisor as well as from locals in Taos), we were excited to head out there for lunch today. Unfortunately, we arrived to find the space is totally empty. Don't have any idea what happened, but a local who was...More

As hard to find as it is, this is a "neighborhood" place for me when I'm in Taos four months of the year. Once I noticed it last summer, I ate there at least twice a week, and I miss it terribly. Her curry and...More

What an incredible meal! I had the ahi tuna sandwich -- probably the best I've ever eaten. I had a moment of sadness after the last bite. Everything from the bread to the wasabe alioli to the salmon itself -- perfection. Sheila was hustling here...More

This is a terrific little restaurant on the far north side of Taos. A bit hard to find, as it is down a small hill on a dirt driveway from Highway 522. Menu is mostly sandwiches, salads, and rice bowls. My party of 5 tried...More

The only negative part of this review is that it took us so many months to finally eat here. We had the meat loaf sandwich, egg salad sandwich and the Miami sandwich. Very large portions, friendly service, and you can watch Sheila cook while you...More

When we were told to go north from the old blinking light, we thought it was a mistake. But when we bit into our sandwiches, we knew we'd gone to the right place! Somewhat reminds me of Sheila's "Gypsy 360" The dishes had character.

Sheila is just a great cook. That's the bottom line here. And since I always value a Taos Business that fills a need, Ricochet is both the farthest north place in town AND the best new eats as well. Note for late risers though, they...More

Not sure if the title is correct but this is a gem of a restaurant in Taos. I had a pork, black bean and rice dish that was delicious! My husband had a tuna and rice dish with a citrus viniagrette that I know doesn't...More
