Great food!

Probably some of the best tacos I've had. Homemade marinated beef, salsas and guacamole. A bit pricey, but very good.

Went here for lunch - perfect location, tucked in a little building. The staff were cool, food was very good, very fresh. I'm always on the lookout for where the locals like to go, this is it! Wife and I shared the fish tacos, which ranked well with others I have had all over the place. Prices were decent, look... More

Teocalli is not only some of the best food in the valley its also the best bang for your buck! Definitely the tastiest Mexican food out of CB and Gunnison, quick but still fresh. There is not a single thing on the menu that isn't delicious. They also have very tasty margaritas, and a super casual, welcoming environment. Eat more... More

Little hole-in-the-wall burrito shop. Wasn't expecting much the first time I went... But WOW! 100% better than Chipotle. The ingredients seemed very fresh and the portions were huge. Their version of pulled pork meat was incredible.... I think it was called "Mikes Meat?". Either way I'll definitely be getting that again. I've traveled and been to a ton of these... More

There was always a line and the seating space is limited but that doesn't deter those who apparently know a good thing. We were glad we got to try their tamales and tacos- both delicious. The casual atmosphere is perfect if you have children.

Excellent place to get Mexican food In CB! The food is fresh, seasoned well, has plenty of options to personalize it to your taste and has large portions! It is a small location with limited seating, so be aware before visiting. Highly recommended and will become must go to every time we visit CB!

A little 8 year old local we met on the shuttle bus recommended this restaurant to us and WHOA was she right! I loved both types of tamales but the red was my favorite, smoothered in green chili. My taco came with sour cream and guac! Generous portions, fast/ quality service and delicious margaritas. We will be back next time... More

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.
