we ate at this restaurant during our recent summer trip exploring the various historic small towns of western colorado. although the food did not stand out as exceptional in any way, the history lesson we received from our server Cesar (and part owner??) was truly outstanding! definitely the "dessert" that made the meal feel complete. we were totally blown away...

We live in Houston, TX and after being on the road for over three weeks, we were very hungry for some good Mexican food and we found it at Manuelita's. The service was great and our meals were very good...plenty of food with great flavor. The chips were corn and the salsa flavorful. Many times the Mexican food we find... More

I ordered the Burrito Supreme with chicken. It was delicious. The green chile was mild but delicious. It definitely had a home made taste. This is not a fast food, one taste fits all, boring American franchise restaurant. The taste was authentic Mexican. The chicken was fresh. The service was fast and friendly.

Waitress was very inattentive even when restaurant wasn't that busy. She provided bill with total scribbled on the back of someone else bill. She overcharged us by over $14 based on menu prices. Food was average quality.

Ordered their taco (4) special for $5.99.Tortilla's were about 3/4 inches around. A little meat, lots of lettuce & lots on onion's which we had to remove to eat. One order and two small cokes came to $ 11.48. Took forever to get the food. Would not itemize the bill so I paid it and left. Never again.........

We went through Leadville as a spur of the moment decision so I didn't take the time to research a restaurant like I normally would have. We love Mexican food and decided to try this place. We got there at 12:30 p.m. When we walked in, only one table was filled. This should have been our first indication that things... More

I've had this dish hundreds of times but this little place had the best yet. Very informal setting. The lighting is a little harsh. The food was excellent and the prices fair. The staff was firendly. Definately worth a visit.

Food: sub-par food that could be had from a king soopers frozen food section Service: do you enjoy being accosted verbally with no filter in front of other patrons? This is your place. Awful service is the only words needed. Value: try taco bell and you will have better food and service at 1/10 of the cost. Bottom line: the... More
