Rhonda's is located at the base of the chairlift to the Taos mountain ski area. At the base of the hill, a skier has two main choices for lunch. Go to the crowded cafeteria (yuk) or pay a few extra bucks and have a high quality sit down lunch served by an excellent waitstaff. Each day, Rhonda's has a new menu special item - so you can eat here every day during lunch and not get bored of the available options. Try the stew. Yum. Caution: Not for kids - if you have kids, go to the cafeteria instead.
This place is not a bad option if you want to avoid the cafeteria style lunch at the base area next door. It's a nice and quiet getaway from the busy slopes. That being said, I felt that most of the food left a bit to be desired. To start, we got the chips, salsa, and green chile queso. It sounded delicious on the menu. I grabbed a chip before the dips went down, and after I tasted it, it was clear that this was just a cheap tortilla chip with no flavor. As for the salsa, I know my salsas pretty well, and I'm fairly certain we just got a pour of pace picante - either that or its generic alternative. The green chile queso? It was essentially velveeta cheese with a few green chiles mixed in. For my main course, the server really recommended the turkey dumpling soup so I had that and a chorizo taco. The turkey dumpling soup was bland and not that interesting, but my taco was pretty freaking good. My wife had the BLAT (bacon lettuce avocado tomato) with sweet potato fries and both were pretty standard. Not great. Not bad. So look - this place isn't a bad spot at all. It's nice to have a reasonably priced meal and a beer while not having to fight for a table in the cafeteria. My advice would be to stick to the staples of this type of place. Get the burger, pulled pork sandwich, etc. Don't try and get cute with something like "green chile queso" or you'll be disappointed!
I was on the slopes for two days with my family. We have skied many places. Most of the time when you're at a ski resort, the food is marginal. However this place had great food! Any of the shredded pork items like the tacos and the sandwich etc. is worth ordering. The food is clearly made fresh and is actually quick to arrive. The prices are not that bad either. The only reason I did not give it five stars is because it's a busy place. So you may have to wait a bit before a server Waits on you.The food was so good, we didn't even bother trying other restaurants and there were plenty to choose from.
