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

They are ordered a la carte and I get them basically every time I go in. Crispy, spicy and delicious. I'm also a fan if their tortas. Service is occasionally slow and you take you check to the counter to pay. Despite what the sign says, they will almost always split the check if you want them to.

The food was mediocre. The service was bad. We were the only ones there at noon. Should have left when we saw that. When we needed something I got up to find the waiter and after 5 min he showed up. Don't know where he had been. But he was the only one there except for the 3 of us... More

Fish tacos are awesome. Service is usually one of the fastest places in town. Chicken enchiladas are great, even the piled high nachos are tasty, all gulped down with Horchata! This is a true family - run business, and they are an asset to little ole' Leadville! The oysters I have heard are great!

Basic Tex Mex, nothing fantastic, nothing bad. Expect decent comfort food, service friendly and a little slow, reasonable prices.

Although I really like the Freddy, the owner sometimes the food is a little plain and it is hard to communicate with the other employees. This is not the first restaurant I recommend but it is authentic Mexican food.
