Been here many times and the food is consistently good, though I think their fajitas are not so good as the seasoning sauce is too sweet.

Good food, prices weren't too bad. Drinks are not included in the children's menu prices, and you need to watch that they don't charge you full price for the child's small drink (they charged us the same for the kids' drinks as for the large sodas).

Even though we read mixed reviews about this place, we decided to give it a try. It was clean, service was speedy and friendly. It was a good value for the amount of food received. While its not my favorite Mexican restaurant at home, it was tasty and filled the bill.

The portions are generous, the prices reasonable and the service good. I'd rate the food quality about average for a Mexican restaurant. I would guess there are better Mexican restaurants in Colorado Springs, but this place is OK.. This is review is for the location on Academy.

I wasn't sure about this place when I first looked at it online, but let me tell you that this place is worth it. As soon as we walked in, the waitstaff was very friendly. Even after we sat down, our waiter constantly checked up on us, and made sure we always had refills, more salsa, chips, etc. As for... More

We ate at Pueblo Viejo off Powers for the first time tonight. Friends had eaten there and told us it was as close to authentic Mexican food as they have had here in the Springs...and they were right. There were 5 of us and each of us loved our meals. I had the Rancho Chicken Burrito, my husband had the... More

I would have rated this restaurant higher, except for the overwhelming amount of cilantro in their salsa. You could not taste anything but cilantro. This is a fairly recent change, as we have eaten here and their other location for years. We had the same experience at their other location a couple of weeks ago. The shredded chicken burrito I...

The interior borders on feeling like any other chain Mexican restaurant with just a few interesting touches that set it only slightly apart. The bean dip that they give you with the chips when they seat you is not so great, kind of like thinned out refried beans. The salsa was really good though, and not super spicy. My relleno... More

We eat here on a regular basis and think it is the best Mexican restaurant in the Colorado Springs area. The food is dependably good and the service is excellent. Prices are reasonable, too. Nothing is fancy here, but things are clean and well-maintained. My favorite is the Burrito al Pastor and my husband eats the pork and beef burritos... More

Took us a while, but we finally found a really great Mexican restaurant in town. The food is delicious, the atmosphere warm and comforting (with warm, vivid colors), the margaritas good, and service great. Casual, but beautiful, ethnic decorum. When we want a delicious, hearty meal in a nice surrounding, this is one of our favorite choices. (PS - Try... More
