We very much enjoyed our lunch at Teocalli Tamale while in Crested Butte. It was funny to sit and read the posters noting the "powder" days where lunch was perhaps delayed a bit by staffers getting out on the slopes. Who could blame them? We timed our entrance just right and got in before the high school kids came over... More

Love the food! Love the service! To us it is a favorite and mandatory lunch place on a non-ski day. Our family of three usually does assorted tacos or burritos. The food is fresh and so, so delicious in this small establishment. We always see locals here; another good sign! We have always enjoyed our meals here! Don't miss a... More

Had this for lunch after a morning of dog sledding. Really hit the spot! Burritos are very full and over flowing! Get lots of napkins.

My wife and I were starving and we were told we needed to try Teocali before we left CB. It was a little more expensive than I would have liked to spend on a lunch, but the burritos were delicious and the largest ones I have ever seen. The meat was cooked to perfection and the blend of flavors in... More

Excellent food. We had the burritos and a side a rice and beans (for our toddler). Our toddler loved it. He gobbled up the rice and beans and ate most of the delish guacamole. The burritos were yummy and a very large portion. Considering the high prices throughout Crested Butte it was a great value.

This is the only place I have ever been where a Thai Burrito is even an option. By far the best burrito I have ever had in my life. Not to mention their double-decker tacos are to die for. A Crested Butte Classic!

A friend who lives locally recommended we try this place. It's a small restaurant where one goes for a quick meal, not so much a sit-down experience. However the food is outstanding. We ordered burritos and were not disappointed. If you want Mexican food in Crested Butte, this appears to be the best place to go.

We should have shared the burrito.....it was huge and very filling. Small place but we didn't have trouble getting served at the counter and finding a table.

We decided to stay in on the last night of our vacation and picked up burritos. OMG, they were loaded and delicious. No doubt we will eat there every time we are in Crested Butte. I highly recommend this for take out or a patio lunch or dinner. YUMMY!
