Rhoda's Restaurant

Damn good burgers at the base of Taos Ski Valley.

So a lot of restaurant reviews say “best burger in town.” That seems ridiculous because there are so many variables: buffalo or beef; flattop or grilled; inside or out. No claims of "best" here, but be sure that Rhoda’s has a damn good burger. Get the Western with an onion ring, swiss cheese and two fat strips of bacon. Best part is, Rhoda’s spills out on to the deck right at the base of the mountain and has a killer après vibe. Come early, seats fill up in the spring. Wait, this is Taos; you’ll always find a seat.

Crème Brulee Martini

The Martini Tree

Taos Ski Valley founder Ernie Blake once stashed pitchers of martinis in tree wells on the mountain. Toast this tradition (and celebrate your powder day) at the Martini Tree Bar.
