Good food and excellent friendly service. We eat there about once a month when a cousin comes down from Colorado Springs.

Not only is the food good, but the margaritas are the best I have ever had in my life. The atmosphere is nice, nothing special,

Atmosphere was the only thing decent at this place. The most bland, tasteless Mexican food I've ever experienced. Wrap a plain tortilla around some shredded cheese, microwave for 45 seconds and you'll be better off.

Great specials. Haven't found a better place for Mexican food in Canon City. Better places in Colorado Springs or Pueblo.

We always love coming to this place. The food is always really good and their quick service is fantastic. If you drink this place has great margaritas any almost any flavor. Kids menu is great for picky eaters. Open 7 days a week, something for everyone.

The food was fine, the employees seemed like they would rather be anywhere else than where they were. Zero personality from them.

Great salsa! Waiter was not the greatest, he never really checked on us and we needed stuff. We also had 7 in our group and only 2 small bowls of salsa. They did bring more to us after we asked. Food was okay

Good mexican food in traditional atmosphere. Faves are the appetizer combo as a meal and the El Caporal enchilada.

I frequently eat here with friends and family or order to go. The service is fast and the food is fantastic. Never afraid to try something new here because I know I'll love it all!

Aside from the excellent food and service, this restaurant is beautiful and clean! Everyone enjoyed their meals and drinks and it was only a few minutes from our rental house!!! Highly recommend this restaurant.
