Damn good.

Although it's not the best Mexican I've had, it certainly is good. The tacos are delicious and very filling, they pack me full of meat! They're extremely fast and very friendly. I only wish they had soft corn tortillas or fried crispy taco shells rather than the grocery store crispy. Still awesome... read more

Great tacos and tamales. Chips and salsa good too! Affordable and speedy service. Definitely a must when in Crested Butte.

If you're hungry and don't want to break the bank, this is the place to go. The "tamales" are not just Mexican fare. The Thai Burrito is amazing. It's very casual and no table service, but very yummy!

Always fresh, delicious and quick. Friendly, colorful atmostphere. Our son introduced us to Teo when he was in college and we go back everytime we're in Crested Butte.

Mikes shredded beef taco, FANTASTIC!!!! The tamales rock both mild and hot, but I prefer them without the green sauce. The tacos have a perfect blend of cilantro, lettuce, salsa, cheese, and sour cream! A fantastic after meal biking!!

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.
