Good late night food

Went there with my two sisters and we started the appetizers to be able to try a few different things. We got the spinach quesadilla, mini chimis, and the nine layer dip- all delicious! Their guacamole was very good too.

I went in one morning for a cup of coffee. After not charging me, the waiter put himself in between me and the door and tried to kiss me! Police report has been filed and I do not recommend going here if you're a single female looking for a cup of coffee.

The Loop has absolutely delicious Mexican food. I have been here a couple times. It has great affordable prices and the portions are a good size as well. It has a cute atmosphere. A great place to stop in for food after a day walking around Manitou Springs and all the shops. Highly recommend!!

The food is mediocre at best. The salsa is watery, although it does have some fresh ingredients. The nine layer dip was watery, had over-ground meat and awful canned jalapeños. The shrimp cocktail was awful. I think it had a lot of canned tomatoes/sauce. The enchiladas were average, overpriced and nothing special. The Black Orchid margarita was harsh, and the... More

We ate at The Loop during a weekend getaway to Manitou Springs. We arrived at about 3:30 for a late lunch/early dinner, and the place was very quiet. We had great service, and the food was prepared quickly. I ordered a specialty margarita, and it arrived minutes after placing the order-very tasty! I had shrimp ranchero, and it was very... More

My wife and I love going out to eat whenever we get a chance. When I ask her where she wants to go and start listing restaurants, as soon as I hit The Loop, that's where she wants to go! We love their food and have our favorites. They have the best fish taco's in town and their margarita's are... More

This place was highly recommended, so I'm thinking at one time it must have been good??? The minute we stepped in it looked dirty......still we said lets give it a try (maybe they've been too busy). As soon as you sit down they bring out chips and salsa (that's the best thing they actually have in my opinion). We ordered... More

This restaurant has been in the same location for over 20 years. Every year we make a point to stop and eat or just have a drink. The food has changed over the years but it is still worth a stop.

From the watery, tasteless salsa, and the waitress disappearing,our visit here was disappointing. We have been here in years previous and have always had great service before. One of our three meals was great, one was mediocre, and the shrimp dish had awful shrimp! This is the first time I have regretted choosing to have dinner at the Loop.

The restaurant has a lot of seating and a great location, but the food isn't that great - pretty tasteless. They have typical Tex-Mex offerings, along with burgers and a kids' menu. Our server wasn't thrilled to be there, and it showed. This place is fine if you're looking for a quick place to eat, but I wouldn't recommend it... More
