Good food and stmosphere

We were seated by the fireplace which was lovely. Quick friendly service. The hostess could work a bit on smiling and being friendly. Nice warm chips and salsa. My husband asked for a sauce that wasn't spicy and we quickly received. The fajitas were great. Bathroom was clean. We would recommend!

Fish tacos are very, very spicy!! The carpet was filthy. In fact, the whole place felt dirty. The food was average.

After 7 hours on the road and a short walk from our hotel, we enjoyed a delicious meal at The Loop. I had the Enchiladas Chicken and Spinach and my husband had The Loop combination but what really stood out were the Borracho Beans.The beans had bacon, peppers, onions and tomatoes and they are made fresh daily. The menu had... More

Walked into the The Loop, and was impressed. All the wait staff was very pleasant. The food was very good which I don't say very often about Mexican food. I was very pleased with our waiters recommendation of the Chicken/ Spinach enchiladas. It is a little funky inside, but the wait staffs great service and the great food would keep... More

We stopped by during an afternoon visit to Manitou Springs. A mixture of locals and visitors were dining. Penelope was our server and could not have been more attentive and pleasant. We were seated immediately and the chips and salsa arrived quickly thereafter. Salas was watery but full of chopped ingredients and was slightly hot. The taste was good regardless... More

Upon entering this restaurant we were immediately greeted and seated despite the fact that it was very busy. The server was exceptional in every way, The food was delicious and very reasonably priced (a great value) as the portions were large. We will be sure to return to this place on our next visit.

Stopped in Manitou Springs for the first time & The Loop sounded like the best of our options. Enjoyed a great fajita meal, with salsa (so very tasty & hot!) and guacamole. Everything was wonderful. Extremely friendly staff. Would definitely return when visiting again & highly recommend.

We loved the shrimp and steak fajitas. We got food to go so we were not able to sample the margaritas. Next visit.

This place has your basic Mexican food. Nothing great, nothing you can't get in your own neighborhood. Service was ok. They do have a lot of bussers helping the server's. Didn't try their margarita's but they did look good.

I wouldn't go to place again ever. I started off with a Mai ti, it tasted like rubbing alcohol. The food is bland and tasted like it was just warmed up before serving it. Just pass this place up.
