And the thin crust, hand-tossed, New York-style pizza at Pizaños (pie-zahn-yoz) is a longstandi­ng favorite among Taoseños and visitors alike. Pizaños, presented by Scott Barady and Charley Galer, (“two guys from Utica, New York”) puts a twist on traditiona­l pies or you can create your own. But try the Taoseño (pepperoni or Italian sausage, mushrooms and green chile), Up-Stream (garlic oil instead of marinara, smoked salmon, spinach, capers, fresh tomato, onion, mozzarella and smoked gouda) and the Fire Twirler (pepperoni, Canadian bacon, green chile, jalapeño and pineapple). Pizza by the slice is also available, along with much-loved salads and spectacula­r mountain views. 623 Paseo del Pueblo Norte, Taos (575) 758-1148 Five Star Burgers doesn’t make a typical burger with typical ingredient­s. Their Black Angus beef is all natural, antibiotic free and comes from ethically treated animals. The meat is ground daily. If you’re craving a burger and want a relaxed, yet more upscale atmosphere than a fast-food joint, then head to 5 Star. An example of choices includes the popular Taos Burger with crispy green chile, BBQ sauce and cheddar cheese, or the 5 Star Burger topped with Gorgonzola cheese and applewood-smoked bacon. The patio is dogfriendl­y with free, organic non-GMO bones made in-house. cidsfoodma­ Yet again Cid’s runs away with this category. This organic, locally owned, full-service food market consistent­ly gets rave reviews for its hot and cold, in-house prepared food offerings. Organic is the operative word at Cid’s, so if you’re looking for a tasty, healthy place to “eat your greens,” look no further than the tempting soup and salad bar. Cid’s also offers freshly made packaged salads. Indoor seating is available.
