fresh taste

I liked this restaurant because the menu was unusual for a Mexican restaurant. Instead of a huge plate of greasy food you get fresh veggies and fruits in your entrees. We liked it all - except for the kids meal which was really dry. Try their pineapple salsa and their beef burritos.

Went on a Saturday Night - Crowded atmosphere. Waited for 15 minutes or so. Service was slow, waitress was definately in the weeds most of the night and had a hard time keeping up with all her tables.Food was below average. I think they use instant rice, and the corn tortillas were dry. Just not true/authentic Mexican Food. On the... More

Went with 3 friends with the intent to catch up so arrived at 5pm. Told our server that we didn't want to order food right away but wanted to do drinks for a bit. Which we did but not without constant interruptions asking if we would like to order yet. Not a place for a nice leisurely dining experience. Food... More

We just moved to the area and came in for dinner after I noticed they had a gluten free menu, they were busy so we sat at the bar, Jennifer helped us and she was amazing. She made some suggestions and when there was a little mix up with my food she got it straightened out immediately. The food alone... More

The food was great. Everything tasted so fresh and the salsa was fantastic! The pineapple salsa was the best I have ever had. The staff was great, quick to serve, but not overwhelming. Definitely will go back!

We went here our first night in Colorado Springs on family vacation. It was suggested to us by our hotel staff and we were happy we went! Our table had the Carne Asada, Fajitas for Two and the Portabella & Spinach Enchiladas. We all very much enjoyed our meals. We also started with the salsa and chips. It was good,... More

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

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