Mixed bag; very good food, but....

First of all, this place seems to do a lot of carryout, and if that is all you want then you should raise my rating to very good. But my overall experience didn't get to that level. I was by myself, and when I indicated that the waitress waved me toward a pair of small tables each of which... read more

We were just walking around enjoying a new town and what it had to offer. Although there were no other customers, we stopped for an late lunch/ early dinner and a beer. We shared a plate of nachos and took a sack of tamales to go. It was really good. The people running the place took the time to say... More

The metal object in my profile picture is what my daughter (minor) found in her burrito on 8/2/2015. The owner accused my daughter of placing it there. He was cruel. The police were called, my daughter's tetanus record evaluated by our doctor, and a report filed with CO. The owner/restaurant has no regard for your health and even less integrity.

Craving Mexican food and this did not hit the spot. Not sure if it's a Colorado thing but the mesquite seasoning on the beans seemed to be used on everything....not a big fan of that seasoning so wasn't happy overall.

We stopped in for lunch on a Friday afternoon. The town was very quiet, cars were being detoured during snow removal. The place doesn't look like much from the outside (or the inside for that matter) The food was TexMex style, pretty good, nice and hot, not overpriced. I would go back

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.
