We had been delayed on our cross-country trip, having to have our car repaired in Durango. We did not feel like dealing with the crowds of the restaurants in the touristy area of town. As we drove away from town we spotted this tiny place with several patrons (a good sign) and decided to try it. We were very happy... More

This place is DISGUSTING! The service is TERRIBLE, and the food is NASTY! Not to mention, every time the health department visits, there are many violations, things such as food not being held at proper temperature, bare hand contact with food, employees not washing their hands! GROSS!! AVOID THIS PLACE LIKE THE PLAGUE!!!

Loved the food and the service. My meal was so good, I forced myself to stop eating to save some for later. It was our favorite restaurant stop of our four week tour of Southwest Colorado.

This little place has great truly "Mexican" food. Just don't go for lunch when the high school across the street is in session as it gets over run at lunch time.

This small restaurant reminded us so much of the Huichol culture and area around Puerto Vallarta. The offerings are varied and the tacos are very good and a real bargain. They have cold Mexican beer on tap or in bottle and do try the flan at the end of your meal.

My son and I stopped in for a quick bite. I ordered a ceviche tostada and he ordered 3 fish tacos. We also wanted a cheese crisp or cheese quesadilla. I asked if we could just get a tortilla with cheese only because I didn't see it on the menu and the waiter said yes. The tostada was pretty good.... More

We were very excited to go hear because it was highly recommended by our local guide; however, the food, while authentic, was just ok.

Hands down, one of the best authentic Mexican food experiences I've had anywhere. The cachete and lingua tacos are amazing. The simple pollo and carne asada tacos are also amazing. Most that work here are actually from Nayarit Mexico, and the flavors reflect this. All of the foods specialties menu are sea food and delicious at that. Margarita's as big... More

Definitely authentic. Ordered the special, some pork enchiladas. Beans, rice, and margarita were all great but the enchiladas were filled with dried-out dark meat pork and had two HUGE fat chunks. One chunk was solid fat. So glad I did not bite into it, instead I saw it and picked it out. I'm sure the other menu items are great...... More

We were fortunate to find this quaint restaurant as we passed down the street. What a find! If we would have stayed another day, we would have eaten here again. Authentic is the word. Delicious is what it was. Not just Tacos on the menu. The kitchen staff is happy and sings along to the music while they prepare your... More
