Best Guac, ever

This little family restaurant is a favorite of the locals...really in the Lakewood community. I am admittedly a wuss when it comes to spicy/hot foods, which moves this place to the top of my Mexi list. The salsa was tasty without scalding and the guacamole was well blended so the onion and... read more

Was visiting relatives in Denver, and asked them to recommend a Mexican restaurant. This is what they suggested, and they were right on the mark. The food was really good, and there were generous portions. Several of us had combo meals so we could try several of their offerings. Hard to say that anything stood out more than others; it...

The kitchenette has been our second kitchen. The Carne Asada, my favorite go to, is consistently grilled perfect and plated with fresh requisite sides. They'll make an ala carte combo plate of your choice, if which I enjoy getting to finish. If you get the chance, enjoy spacious veranda dining.

I don't know where to begin except to say that the chips came to our table WARM--actually hot but not dripping or permeated with grease. Light and crisp and strong enough to carry a load of flavorful crunchy salsa. Most of those at the table where we sat ordered burritos "smothered" with beans and rice. They were delighted--and didn't stop... More

This is simply the best and most authentic Mexican food in Colorado. I drive from Colorado Springs to go to this incredible place. The service is great. The food is traditional Mexican food, NOT Tex-Mex.

I've tried many Mexican food restaurants in the Denver area, and this one definitely is in our top five. The place was busy, but our server was excellent. We deviated from the menu order slightly, but nothing was amiss when our food arrived. It was delicious and the prices were more than reasonable. We're definitely going back.

This is the second time I have had a bad meal there. After reading the reviews, I was hoping I had found a good Mexican restaurant. The meal was such a disappointment. I thought it might just be a fluke, so I went back to try it again, and it was just as bad. I'm going to keep looking!
