Being from NYC, I was hoping to find authentic Mexican food. This was pure perfection. The staff was nice & helpful. The food was spicy, steaming hot, and a dream come true. I suggest the combo plate: best taco, enchilada, & chili relleno

I really liked this place. We were able to eat outside which was really nice. The staff was very friendly and fast even though we had a larger party. The food was very tasty and I loved the spice level.

Great food in a casual relaxing atmosphere. We visited there in the summer and sat outside and enjoyed the food and our surroundings. Service was efficient and friendly.

I don't know what happened with the first reviewer, they must have gone on a bad night or something. The atmosphere is unique, colorful, and pretty cozy, just a little cramped. Traditional New Mexican. The food is great, they have large protions, the prices are not bad. I love everything thta I order there. If it is your first time I recommend a combination plate that way you can try more, if not they have some like chile bowl thing that is really good, and you can never go wrong with enchiladas

Pros: Food

Cons: A little cramped when it is busy, and boy does it get busy sometimes

Not sure what was up with the previous reviewer. We were very happy with our visits to Orlando's. We've stopped here two times in the last couple of years and have enjoyed both times. Great food, friendly service all in a bright colorful atmosphere. I had the chicken burrito and it was excellent. My husband had the tostada and it was very good too. The restaurant is difficult to find by well worth the search!

Pros: Great food, friendly service, very "Taos" looking place.

Cons: slightly difficult to find

My friend and I expected good new mexican food, instead, it was very bland and not fresh. As bad as the food was, the service was even worse. I can't imagine who's possibly giving this restaurant good ratings for taste, unless they've had their taste glands removed or have an aversion to anything with flavor (read: spicy does not equate with flavorful).

Pros: colorful ambiance...if you like kitsch, this is your place!

Cons: awful food. seriously, the beans looked like they were straight out of a can...pico de gallo, un-fresh...service was the worst!
