Authentic Mexican

This was authentic Mexican restaurant. We enjoyed the personnel and the Sopaipillas were outstanding! We drank water, and the water was so good there. I only wish we would have taking our camel packs and had them filled.

We ate here in 1983 and 5 times since and food was always great. However in August 2015 we were extremely disappointed. The chips were store bought and the salsa changed to something very different. The sampler type platter was like something that had been frozen and microwaved. Will try one more time in future and hope for the best... More

Leadville is a town with precious few good places to eat. We tried the Casa Blanca based on enthusiastic reviews. The wait staff was very pleasant but the food was very disappointing. Very prosaic and uninteresting approach to South of the Border inspired cooking. The relleno was inedible and the vegetarian plate was below average with the exception of the... More

Started with a great homemade salsa and chips. Then onto Chile Relleno . it was great. Worth a trip to Leadville just to have their Mexican food.

Simple decor. Homey atmosphere. Family operated. Authentic Mexican food and very reasonable prices. The chips and salsa were not very good, but the entrees were excellent. I especially liked the Enchiladas Tejanas.

We were told at our motel that this was the best Mexican restaurant in town. If that is the case, Leadville is in trouble. The place is charming on the outside but is almost completely devoid of charm inside. They brought us about a dozen chips and a mediocre salsa, which should have been a tip-off. We had burritos and... More

We had low expectations when we arrived only because who would think there could be good mexican food in such a small town. But we enjoyed it very much! Only downside was the service was a little slow, but we were in no rush.

my favorite food here has always been the pork tamales. lately the outer corn wrap has been a bit mushy and the overall dish with the green chili on top has been lacking in the flavors it use to bring. the chicken enchiladas were good. the salsa with chips has a piquant flavor but the texture would be better with...

I've been here twice. Once when a local brought me, and a second time while travelling through Leadville. Both time the food was very good. Seems like this place gets a lot of local traffic along with visitors. I recommend it while you're in Leadville.

Decent Tex-Mex food, some Mexican beers, large portions, good service, family-friendly, clean brightly lit dining area with cheery artwork on walls (see photos). Enchiladas were very good. Chile rellenos were different than what I was used to, but tasty. Disappointed they didn't have posole during the couple of days we were there, as they make either menudo or posole (but... More
