Stray Dog Cantina
105 Sutton Pl Taos Ski Valley
North Central

Stray Dog Cantina has been serving delicious Northern New Mexican food and drinks in the Taos Ski Valley for 25 years. We are especially famous for our 100% flame roasted red and green chile. The Margaritas are legendary as well, made with fresh lime juice and agave tequila. Stray Dog Cantina, located at the base of the Taos Ski Valley, was first opened in 1989. Original owner Tim had been working in Taos Ski Valley at the Hotel St. Bernard for many years. When he 'strayed" from the St. Bernard (aka - the Big Dog, by the locals) he decided to call his new place Tim's Stray Dog Cantina. The Stray Dog quickly became a favorite eating and watering hole for locals and the tourists soon followed. Stray Dog Cantina has built a solid reputation around their great food, fun atmosphere, and deliciously strong margaritas. Caution: Our chile is not for amateurs. It's extra tasty, but it can be spicy - it is serious chile.
