When we are visiting Crested Butte, we always stop here for dinner. We were there at 5 pm when the restaurant opened and were seated immediately. Our waitress was helpful, but then she got other larger tables and forgot us. The assistants to the wait staff were more attentive and gave us refills. We had to ask for the check... More

This wasn't a huge place, but boy can they cook! Everything our table had was so good! I had an enchilada/chili relleno combo plate. Yum! Try the green chili sauce. Big servings - you won't leave hungry. Great service - even on a busy Friday night! Well worth the stop and definitely a new favorite!

Best Mexican my family has had in a long time. You could smell the fresh spices walking up the stairs. I had the special of the day, and it was delicious! Everything was made fresh, juicy full of flavor chicken, fresh salsa and chips. My kids said it was the best tacos they have ever had. Margarita wasn't to bad... More

Came here in December 2011 with my friend for a week. The owners were very friendly and even sat with us to chat. Good was great. Would recommend it.

We sat down at the bar for a couple drinks before dinner and were pleasantly surprised that happy hour was in progress. The margaritas were served in pint glasses and were very tasty and potent. Free chips too! Our visit was already a success. We put our name in to get a table and after we had waited awhile we... More

We didn't have to wait for a table. The waiter was very nice and fun. They had great margaritas and the food was delicious! It was a little crowded with how close some of the tables were, but it wasn't too bad. They staff were all great and so nice.

I went to the Cantina last night to have a meal with my boyfriend. After living here for 7 months I thought I would like to give something new a try. Worst idea I could have made. The food was good and the place was practically empty, but after leaving around 8 pm and going home and going to bed,... More
