Great food and the margarita's weren't bad either! Try the fish taco. Walking distance from the Cristiana Guest Haus.

Apparently mushy potato chunks are considered the substance of 'gourmet vegetable tacos'. It's pretty difficult to mess up Mexican food.

I am a big taco person being from Texas, and I have fish tacos everywhere I go. Teocalli Tamale had plenty to offer, from burritos and tacos, to tamales and salads. My boyfriend got the chips and guacamole as an appetizer and the guacamole was so fresh and delicious and made in house! I ordered the fish tacos, and let... More

We enjoyed an afternoon lunch at Teocalli Tamale on our last Crested Butte Vacation. We were a party of 6 and we all enjoyed different items from the menu. The quality is good and the food is very fresh. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a lunch or quick dinner spot.

This is my go to place when I visit CB to photograph the incredible scenery in spring and fall. The ingredients are always fresh, the staff friendly, and the prices reasonable for Crested Butte. The burritos are so large that I like to eat half at Teocalli and save the other half for a late dinner back at the campground.

Fresh, made to order burritos and tacos.A bit more expensive than most burrito joints of similar quality, but given the location in CB, probably understandable. Ask about the 'gap tooth discount' for $0.50 off your order!!
