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

This place is my favorite one in Buena Vista. The cheese dip, the pachuga and the margaritas are unforgettable! The outdoor seating is quite delightful. I always enjoy my visit here and the servers are wonderful. LOVE LOVE LOVE

The food was authentic Mexican not Tex Mex. One of the best places I had ever ate in a long time. Our server was very friendly and told us about each of the sauces .We will be back
