Can't go wrong

A chill local vibe with tons of life. The staff was beyond helpful with selection of food and bike trails. Even the people in line were blurting out their favs. Had the mikes, woah! Get the hot salsa, damn good. Wash it down with a tecate and let your stomach relax. I'm going back tonight.

We have eaten here many times over the last 15 or so years. Very casual Mexican dining. Seating is limited but tables turn over quickly. I love their chicken burritos. Quite ample portions. The workers are friendly and efficient. This is a restaurant I look forward to every visit.

By sharing your experiences, you're helping travelers make We ate here one night after arriving to Crested Butte. It was a SMALL little space but don't let that fool you. We lived in Texas for 25 years and were looking for some good Mexican food. The ingredients and flavors met expectations. Be prepared to eat in shifts if you don't... More

This was a very good stop in our travels. Friendly staff and fresh food. The spicy meat was perfect. It was after 2 pm but, it seemed like the lunch crowd had just started. It was busy. They moved people through quickly and efficiently. Customers all had a pleased look on their faces. Guac was very good as were the... More

A girlfriend and I stopped in for a nibble during our wanderings of Elk Street. We told the guys at the ordering counter that this was their ONE SHOT to impress us as we would probably never be here again and what did they recommend as the one dish we would ever be able to sample. They said to have... More

The place is cramped and noisy, and the furnishings uncomfortable. You will be lucky to find a seat. Lots of college kids yelling profanity. When we went, they were out of tamales. Food was pretty bad... exceptionally bland and unseasoned. Tortillas were doughy. Beef was tough, dry and funky/gamey, I suspect it was very old and freezer burned. Even though... More

We had fished and floated the Gunnison and wanted a filling informal meal. We loved the Tamales that we shared but the burritos were amazing~ We had four in our family and all agreed it was one of our favorite meals. Everything was fresh, seasoned well and we will all go there again on the next visit~ I still would... More

Really tasty burritos, friendly staff. It was a nice break from mountain resort pricing. Kids enjoyed it as well. Family friendly.

funky little bistro on elk av in tiny shop with only 3-4 tables inside and a small patio on the sidewalk. Great pork tamales dinners with green or red sauce. Also delicious crispy or soft tacos. Order at the counter...quick service. Love it.
