We have often dined at Casa del Sol over the last couple of decades, as Buena Vista (pronounced "B-yoo-na" by the locals) seems to be half-way toward where we are going or coming from. It is located about a block north of the main traffic light. It has been a family-run restaurant since long before we started coming. Our most... More

If you think beef bullion and a clump of salad is Mexican go for it. The food was way overpriced and nothing special. We live in town and have not been back.

Well I remember the experience positively but honestly I can't recall what I ordered. Anyway, I would go back, probably waiting for summer when they would be serving on the patio. It is good Mexican food in a casual atmosphere.

Our Lunch was great. Nancy was a great help with the menu and with information about the area. The place is a little kooky but we loved it.

For those that love Mexican food, you'll love this place! The sign says "steak and seafood" also, but I saw none of that on the menu. And if you go in there and decide you don't want typical "real" Mexican, just order off the menu and have a taco! Yum!

The menu is limited in regards to choices. Service was a little slow. Food was just o.k. There was not anything that helped this restaurant stand out from the rest.

I went here thinking it would be a really outstanding restaurant, even though the reviews weren't that great-- I should have paid attention to the reviews. The atmosphere was superb but I bought the best steak dish on the menu, and the most expensive, and when it came to the table, I needed a magnifying glass to see it, and... More

After reading the mixed reviews, we almost didn't go. We are very glad we did. It was the most enjoyable meal we had in Buena Vista. We had a group of eight,including two very active toddlers. They sat us in our "own" section and took very good care of us. The margaritas are homemade and not full of the yucky... More

Tripadvisers.com Casa del Sol My wife and I have been dining at the Casa del Sol for almost 30 years on our seasonal visits. We had dinner there two weeks ago and again found its intimate adobe house and court yard ambiance very conducive to visiting over dinner. The service and food in our judgment is excellent. I order the... More

We were looking forward to some real Mexican food with a Colorado flavor. Instead we had over a hour wait to get the food after we ordered. We're talking about over $12 for an enchilada meal here. When it came it was mostly tasteless. Even the so-called Santa Fe enchiladas were terrible. The only thing that was worth eating was... More
