Good Mexican

Excellent service, good margaritas and well-prepared food---a good location for people going from Denver south since it is just off the express.

The newspaper talked about 3rd place ranking best Mexican Restuarant. So we tried it . I don't agree with newspaper reviews . I do give the waitress a top 5 as she was great . But food did not rate as good. Rice was bland the rest so so . Apple crisp however was delicious.

I hope the owner figures this out, because this was a favorite local restaraunt. Still good was the salsa and the beer we had. Both meals were terrible. I ordered the special -- a pork burrito and it came cold and meat was like it came out of a can. Wife's Baka tacos were also cold and wrapped in flour... More

Dinner on a weekday night is sometimes low key. Not so with this lively local hot spot. Thursday night service was great from a smiling greeter to friendly, knowledgeable wait staff, excellent margarita-preparing bartenders . Planning to try tableside guacamole next time since the regular serving side disappeared quickly with our chips! Fun for the family or a night out... More

Wow has this place changed and for the worst! The old manager (Charles) is gone and I don't know if there is even one now. I went for Happy Hour and sat on the patio. No server came. I went to find the hostess who ignored me for five minutes while chatting with her friends. I final got a menu... More

Went at 5:30 to catch happy hour. My wife and I ordered the carnitas. We were obviously were served yesterday's carnitas. They were very dry. I complained to the manager. He had all the compassion of ISIS. The young man didn't care a damn as long as we left post haste. This successful restaurant needs to upgrade their management on... More

Always good food, fresh and offer vegetarian options. Salsa Brava on Briargate Parkway is one of our favorite restaurants. Love this place......

Salsa Brava is one of our favorites, typically for chicken enchiladas, but today I found shredded chicken and Chorizo sausage enchiladas, with a lovely, spicy brown sauce - and these are the best flavors I have experienced since my early days in LAREDO, TEXAS. This menu item was recently added, and will be available for a few weeks. Our lunch... More

Spent the summer in Colorado Springs and learned of this restaurant from local family members. Mexican restaurants in the States serve different meals but they all taste the same. This restaurant breaks the rice, bean, meat pattern. After our first visit, this restaurant became our favorite for the duration of the visit. Their specials and items on the menu were... More
