The cheese relleno, smothered in green chili (you have to request the green chili) was tasty and along with the rice and beans was pretty filling. The chicken taco was, um, sort of bland. Nothing but some chicken in red sauce plunked down in the rice. Not too pretty or appealing.

I've traveled to Mexico many times and found this restaurant to be very authentic. Love the Margs love the salsa bar and warm tortillas. I haven't ever had anything bad on this me ur and I've tried many of their dishes! Great food great staff!!

Yeah. When you see that they don't list the drink prices on the regular menu - run. Went out with friends and had a meal at $14 - should have been $9. Salsa bar? What? Trying to save time from the waiter bringing me something? Tiny plastic containers? I felt like I was at MacDonald's. The steak from the carne... More

Very impressed with the friendly welcome and service. My hubby loved the quail, I enjoyed Spinach enchiladas and a refreshing frozen strawberry daiquiri. The salsa bar was also very good. Prices were reasonable for the generous portions.

This place is real Mexican- love the salsa bar and big margaritas. Whenever my dad visits from Chicago, he always asks to eat here. Big portions- easy with kids.

It's been a while since I've eaten here and the food and drinks used to be quite good. I was sorely disappointed on my return visit. Has management changed? New chefs? Cutting quality to keep prices down? Whatever it is, they need to go back to the old because the dish I ate was plain at best, beans and rice... More

The food is always great! No one ever leaves hungry! Service is superb! We've made it a yearly destination in Old Towne before move in week. Tricolor enchiladas are my favorite with cheese and mushroon enchiladas coming in second. The salsa bar is to die for with the range for faint of heart to hearty hot. They keep them coming... More

Our family has regularly dined at Los Tarascos. We love the shrimp Tarascos, which is a nice Mexican enchilada with shrimp in a white sauce. The margaritas are tasty, but strong. You will only be allowed two, but that is plenty. If you prefer to eat good quality food served by family and locally owned, you should dine here.

We ate here with friends who live in Ft. Collins. The unique thing about this restaurant is the salsa bar, which has several salsa with chips( $2 extra) or tortillas. We all ordered the same thing -the enchilada tri color but we all different fillings. Each meal was $12.The food was good and better than chain Mexican restaurants.

I grew up eating real Tex(as)Mex & I really love every dish I've had at Los Tarascos (over the last 10+ years). My friend with food allergies accompanies me here as a special treat, since her food options are so limited. It's Certainly not anything like the "slop" you might find at Taco John's... What an insult! LT's dishes are... More
