My husband and I stopped here for a quick dinner before heading to the drivein. Delicious and reasonably priced food! Awesome service!

Mild and unexciting (usually get takeout and use a lot of salsa) but a reasonable choice if you want Mexican in BV. Enchiladas verdes not very verdes. Service can be slow but takeout works well.

Well everybody has a bad day, maybe it was their turn. A Sunday afternoon lunch seem to stretch on forever. There were only two people working the front end, seating, serving, bussing, and acting as cashier. While we were seated rather quickly and served chips & salsa, it was over twenty minutes before coming back to take our order. The... More

While visiting family in Buena Vista we came across this great Mexican restaurant, which offered great food, moderately priced. it was last Friday evening, 08/08/2014. I had the burrito colorado and my wife had the steak burrito, were both finger licking good and what made mine even better was the sauce, which tasted very authentic. The portions were large and...

This is our favorite restaurant in BV. Their chips and salsa are home made and so good. We always buy some to take home with us. The Cheese enchiladas are great. And the service is always polite and attentive

Not anything to write home about. The food was okay. The wait staff friendly and attentive. According to the locals it is the only authentic Mexican restaurant in the area.

The chips, salsa, and guacamole were fantastic. We also had the chicken enchiladas with rice and beans and they were good too. About the only things I can fault them for was the slow customer service and the carpet really needs to be changed. When you first go in, you don't know if to seat yourself or wait. We waited...

Not a pleasant lunch. The chili verde was lacking in flavor. The rice and beans were standard blah. The margaritas were very weak and tasted of cheap bottled sour mix. The server barely spoke English and mostly grunted in communication. Zero attempt are ensuring our experience was enjoyable. Would never consider a return visit.

We ate at Los Girasoles on the recommendation of local residents of Buena Vista. It was easy to see why they liked this place for great Tex-Mex food! My enchiladas and my husband's chalupa were delicious, and the prices were very reasonable. The salsa was really great and not too spicy. The service was very good and unpretentious. When in... More

Recently ate at Los Girasoles twice, and it was pretty good Mexican food (which I eat often, in Mexican Food "meccas," like Texas, California etc). I would consider the food to be true Tex-Mex, with perhaps less than average grease and cheese (so Tex-Mex leaning towards New Mexican- Mex...and if you've eaten Mexican all over the country, you'll know what...
