Los Girasoles has the best Mexican food around at a good price. The Fajitas are the best we have had anywhere. The 2 for 1 magaritas as soooooo tasty. The go great with their home made salsa and chips. Highly recommend this restaurant of any other!! :o)

The food was average, but the service was excellent. For Mexican food, the prices weren't really very good, especially when considering the quality of food. We went for lunch, perhaps it is better for dinner. Our waitress was awesome!!! Tasty House Margarita!

We have eatern here half a doezen times, so we obviously like the place. Food is consistently great, salsa is wonderful. Only downside is that the staff is not particularly friendly.....not unfriendly but indifferent. It would help their "ambiance" if they interacted a little more positively with their guests. However, we like the place enough to keep coming back.

When you get to some of the small Colorado towns the food choices can be limited and my rating is based on a comparison of other choices available, not comparable to what it would be if I was comparing it to places in Denver, or even Frisco (Carlos Miguel's Mexican Bar & Grill in Frisco is out of the world...

This a great restaurant with delicious food and reasonable prices. I always go out of my way to eat here. I would have given it 5 stars but there is one really grumpy waiter there who I just hope will not be our server when we are there, otherwise it would be excellent. If you like it spice try the...

Title says it all. I have been twice, and the food is decent - but nothing to write home about. Service was very fast. I think it is probably your best best for Mexican in Buena Vista.

Although in an old fast food building, the place was clean. Service was very fast!! The food was good, but the salsa was great! Fresh, but it could have been hotter. Lunch specials around $7.

I was in Buena Vista today and decided to try Los Girasoles. I don't know if there are 2 of them because this was over near City Market. The only good thing there was the salsa. I ordered Chili con Queso dip and it was melted shredded cheddar cheese with peppers in it and it was full of grease. My... More

The food here is authentic and the service is great! We really enjoy going to this restaurant any time of the year. It is one of the few mexican restaurants that can compare to the ones in Texas!

Oh yes! We have been eating at Los Girasoles in Salida & Buena Vista since they first opened in Poncha Springs! Being from California we are picky about Mexican but this fills the bill! Great enchiladas, burritos, Pork carnitas and more. Have never gotten a bad meal here. The owners are local and Hispanic and know how to cook! Love... More
