Not what I expected,.

however, it is an 'Authentic Mexican' restaurant so the lack of spice makes total sense - the hubs and I just prefer to live (and eat) on the spicy side of life.

Do not waste your time or money. It looked cute from the outside, and it was actually recommended by a friend. It was terrible in so many ways-first the chips were probably from a bag of tostitos (salty and factory made), served with something that tasted like a jar of pace picante sauce. The chicken tasted like it had been... More

Just ate here. Amazing. I had the shrimp cases del sol. It was delicious. Also the Mexican hot chocolate was amazing and the guacamole was good. Service is fantastic. Very impressed and would definitely come back. I don't know how people rated it poorly

Food was awful, didn't even finish my meal. At $15 an entree, I was expecting something somewhat decent. Restaurant is like a cave- there are no windows or natural light. The tables are practically on top of each other.

Ate there with my family. The service was good, but the food was really bad. What wasn't terrible tasting was very bland. If you must go, lots of salt helps! I can't imagine how this place stays in business. Talked to relatives from Buena Vista and they felt the same.

Sorry but this place is a miss! Of Course in their defense Buena Vista despite their name is not known for their um Mexican food. Your best bet is to try something all together different :)

Driving thru Buena Vista Colorado we stopped at 5pm for a bite to eat. The place was inviting and fun, server was excellent and the food was delightful. Our server made up some fabulous margaritas before dinner and served us a beef broth, with a meatball, stuffed with almonds prior to our meal. Different and tasty. Dinners were delivered hot...

My husband and I have gone here for 34 years intermittently. Back in 1981 when we worked in CO during the summers from TX, and since we moved to Denver 24 years ago, then Summit County. Their salsa is THE BEST! I could eat bowls of it. It's made fresh and you can taste it. Their guacamole, chili rellenos and... More

Not many Mexican dishes on the menu, but Margaritas were excellent, service was slow, but we weren't in a hurry, place was dark and hushed. Decor was clowns, mirrors and some small blankets hanging on the wall. Our beef & bean burritos arrived with cold cheese stuck to the tortilla & plate, needed a knife to cut it up. The... More

This restaurant was a disaster- from the entryway and décor which features Southwest motifs and clowns?, to the kitchen that would never have passed a health inspection, to the food which had very little taste and appeared to have sat under a heat lamp because the cheese was glued to the plate so much that I couldn't even use a...
