Wow, my husband and two friends and I went here for dinner the other night. The restaurant was colorful and busy. We all had margaritas that were to die food and all of the food portions were more than enough. If you are not very hungry, share a portion with someone. We had chips and salsa brought out for free,... More

My boyfriend and I have gone to this restaurant for years and love it every time. The atmosphere is wonderful, colorful, clean and friendly. The food is reasonably priced, delicious and generously proportioned! Great service and the best Mexican food in Aspen Valley.

My friends and I have traveled down from Aspen for years just to visit El Korita for a real Mexican treat and celebration! This place is authentic and beautifully decorated with bright colors. The food is delicious and priced well. We love the big, cozy booths and great service!

We used to eat here 1 or 2 times a month. It was busy and had good service and food. We were away most of the summer and returned tonight. It has changed. Very poor service and an uncaring staff. We are not returning.

Local restaurant that is busy all the time for a reason! I have never been disappointed in my food here! The service can be a little slow if they are really busy, however the food comes out quickly and is always HOT! Wonderful family owned restaurant. :)

El Korita is a popular Mexican restaurant near Whole Foods in Willits Center. Food is authentically Mexican and well prepared. Many beer selections also.

My wife and I are not Mexican food lovers as the beans and rice do nothing for us but we both had to say that out of all of the Mexican food that we had ever eaten this was by far the best. My god give one of the rocket fuel Margaritas a go as well they were AMAZING.

My kids wanted to get some great Mexican food at El Korita. I have eaten there on numerous occasions and have had wonderful meals with excellent service. Regretfully, two of the kids got food poisoning from their seafood dish that is served in a extremely hot bowl (the name escapes me).

My wife and kids, my brothers and friends all eat here and have for years. But, to be honest, it is the worst service in the valley - hands down. You can always count on a waiting line, and a long wait for your food after that. One time we were there for 2 1/2 hours for my mother's birthday,... More
