An iconic place for margaritas

Pretty much everyone who goes to Manitou knows about the Loop. It's a locals favorite for large maragaritas. I'd give the margaritas are a 5, and a 3 for food. It's a great place to go after doing The Incline with friends.

OMGoodness!! This restaurant is SO great in all aspects: service from wait staff, freshness and flavor of food, portion size, prices, and atmosphere. Every time we eat here, everything consistently good. Try their margaritas because they are so yummy. Chips and salsas are great and the food is amazing. Settled on the corner in Manitou Springs in the middle of... More

We stumbled upon this restaurant last year. We had gone up pikes peak and when we returned it was after 9 pm. It was the only place that looked open. The food was very good so we went again this year. Foods good, could be a little cleaner. Wait staff friendly.

This place really looks like a dump inside, but the food is actually pretty good. We only had to wait about five minutes for a table on a Saturday night. There's not a lot of decent places to eat in this town to begin with, so finding anything edible is a challenge. Our waiter was fine and our food came... More

The food was pretty good. The server was nice. The margarita tasted a little off. I'd probably try another place next time.

We were recommend to this place a least 3 times, and were told it was "festive". While it wasn't that festive and the service was okay the food definitely made up for it.

Just ate here two nights ago. We didn't have a long wait time, so that's always a plus. It's a very dated place, nasty carpet... Our waitress was very nice, but slow. Our food was average. Not anything to go back for. They said they had the best margaritas...not sure about that statement... But overall it was okay. Wasn't too... More

We stopped for dinner here and had a nice meal. Typical Mexican fare, but was good. Dinner and drinks for 4 adults was $60.

When we visited in early evening the restaurant was busy but far from full. The floor was littered with food from previous diners and we had to wipe some from the chairs before sitting. Closing one section briefly to clean up would have seemed an easy solution but obviously not to the staff. Our food was good but nothing to... More
