Excellent Mexican food, I was surprised by just how wonderful the food was. My favorite meal not just in Taos, but in New Mexico.

Well the food was great...get the barbacoa and the guacamole if you can. However don't be surprised if they try to upsell you. Saw a manager yell at an employee, but other than that it was a pretty nice lunch.

I ate dinner here and enjoyed their interesting take on Mexican food. The menu featured some common dishes such as steak fajitas, but many of them have a unique spin. Many of the dishes are made with different fruits and flavors that are not seen...More

Antonio's has a large front patio with reasonable distance between tables. A well-behaved dog on a leash would not be a problem to anyone, but the restaurant inexplicably bans all dogs. The server either could not or would not offer any rationale. We take our...More

An Eclectic Taste Of Mexico. Chef Antonio covers all the bases, deliciously. Everything on the menu is prepared fresh and made to order and the majority of the menu can be prepared gluten free. Because of the flavorful, full-bodied sauces, you will be pleasantly full at the end of your meal accompanied with a fun Margarita like a Jalapeno, Watermelon Margarita. Nothing else like Antonio's Restaurant in beautiful Taos, New Mexico.
