Ranchos Plaza Grill




 These two murals are painted on the dining room walls of the Ranchos Plaza Grill in Ranchos de Taos.
If you like AUTHENTIC Mexican food, take a ride north of Santa Fe, view spectacular scenery on the High Road to Taos and stop in this cafe for a delicious meal.

  1. I like Tex-Mex. When we lived in Phoenix I took a trip with some friends deep into Mexico. One of the big surprises was the relative blandness of "authentic" Mexican food. I thought it would be much "hotter."

  2. Early Sunday and I haven't even made coffee yet, but I've "met" a new artist already, thanks to you. Love that first mural. Thank you, Kate.

  3. The first mural looks like the work of Carmen Lomas Garza. Do you know if it is? LOVELY, lovely!

  10. Now there is some good advice. This looks like a good spot for great food.
    Kate, I've been busy the last two days training docents so I missed you problem's on the link I sent. No worries. I sent it to a friend who had similar troubles and I don't know what causes it. The city has the link on their site too. I'll try to find that link and send it to you. Maybe it will work better from their site.

  11. If you go to Taos again you have to try The Gorge on the plaza. The food is so tasty. I will have to try this place.

  12. This is waaaayyyyy more picturesque than the Taco Bus!!! Santa Fe and Taos are definitely destinations on my bucket list, and now I know a beautiful place to dine.

  13. It looks like you're hitting some great spots and this certainly sounds like one of them. A feast for the eyes and the palate.

  15. Beautful murals.I viewed them using Google Reader in full frame. Alot going on in your fist pic. A few of those Tamales in the blue pot would sure taste good about now! I need to see who the Patron Saint of Kitchens is. I believe he may be standing on the table by the candle and the book. Senor George Chacon has cleverly signed his 1995 mural "La Cocinera" on the front of the book.

    Our Lady of Guadalupe is also well done adorned in her many colors.

    As you said, I bet the food is 'muy sabroso' !

  18. You're not letting any moss grow on you out there in New Mexico, are you? This does look like a good place to eat.

  20. The murals create a lovely atmosphere for dining.

  21. I will be sure to stop here. I really love the colors and the art of these murals. This art would definitely add to the experience of eating Mexican food. I'm embarrassed to say it- but I still haven't made it out to Santa Fe. One day!=)
