Good food and margaritas

We enjoyed our margaritas and warm tortilla chips and salsa the most. The food was good but not great. The seafood and steak meal was just ok. Good atmosphere and service.

A great atmosphere with a unique ceiling provides a great place to eat very fresh food that tastes outstanding! I almost always order the daily special and am never disappointed.

In all the times I have been here I have never had a bad meal! The Happy Hour specials are always great. Especially love the queso, it is amazing and very neat how they keep it warm throughout so it doesn't turn clumpy!

We arrived towards the end of Happy Hour. The bartender was extremely busy, therefore, her attitude was very abrupt. When I asked where my friend's beer was, she snapped at us and said she will get to it when she can. I retorted that we were in line waiting longer than the other patrons whom were served before us. I... More

Saturday evening meal. Our party of six was able to be seated quickly. Chips and salsa were surprisingly good. Expected standard chips and salsa. Probably the best part of the meal. Ordered an artichoke as an appetizer. It was cooked well, but the spikes were not trimmed. Not certain if that is a standard, but I wasn't aware until I... More

This place was recommended to me as a "legitimate restaurant" for Mexican/Latin food. It was stellar. Prices are good and the food is fresh. Try the strawberry margarita (you won't have just one) and the blue corn shrimp & lobster tacos.

Love the ambiance in this place, very cute. Put our water and order in, and 15 minutes later we got our water. Had to remind waitress we had no drinks. People coming in much later with different servers had a different experience. They even got drinks and food before we got our water. Food came out Luke warm and took... More

Colorado Springs Food Guy recently visited the Sonterra Grill located at 28 S Tejon St, Colorado Springs, CO 80903 which is an upscale Mexican restaurant with American Southwestern flair. The atmosphere is relaxed and the staff is so friendly and knowledgeable. This menu is delightful and their recipes are outside the box with culinary style. All menu items are freshly... More

We were with a large group had called ahead of time and they opened the space next door to Accommodate all of us. Very friendly staff and the food was excellent! If you are in the area it's definitely worth it!

One of our favorite restaurants in Colorado Springs... delicious food, nice atmosphere inside and out (weather permitting). One of the dishes is easy to modify if you're vegan, and tastes like a semi-gourmet vegan meal that even meat/ cheese eaters enjoy.
