Description: 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.

Antonio loves to cook and is an excellent chef. The only place to get queso in town. You must try the flan- not only wonderful but a creative presentation. Every time I go I try something new like the crab tacos-- never have been disappointed.

Second time in this restaurant. We had to get chile relenos once again. This dish is uniquely spiced to satisfy gourmet customers. We also had paella wih seafood. For appetizer we had mussels on special menu. Both deliciously uniquely fresh. Top it with tres leches!!

Where to start? Antonio’s signature dish, the Chile relleno en nogada is probably like no TexMex or Mexican chow you’ve ever had before...unless you live in Mexico City or are a regular patron of Rick Bayless’s Joints...Frontera and Topolobompo. Antonio’s Relleno is stuffed with seasoned beef, apple, pear, raisins, tomato and onion, and served with a brandy walnut cream sauce, and a sprinkling of cotilla cheese and pomegranate seeds. You won’t believe what hits your mouth! To drink, you must have his Taos Margarita...lime, watermelon, jalapeño...the last sip is ESSENCE of the jalapeño...not the heat, just it’s flavor!
No kidding. The rest of his menu is just as tantalizing...blue crab enchiladas covered in shrimp, lobster enchiladas, and more. This place WILL NOT break the bank, either. When the food is this fresh, this creative and this well-prepared, why eat anywhere else when in Taos?

I've been in Taos for about a week and have eaten at several restaurants. Antonio's was the best hands down. I will definitely be back before I continue on my trip. Great food selection and fast service. I got confused about the location since there are 2 Ace Hardware stores and it is the one that is the furthest south.

We were traveling in the area and stopped at Antonio's The Taste of Mexico. Loved the pork burrito and the ground beef quesadilla. It do not order the cod dinner.
Chips and guacamole were good also. Service was very good also.
