I tried, I ate, it wasn't the greatest

nothing special at this establishment. The chips were good, but the salsa was spicy for my taste. My daughter and I had tacos and had to eat them with a fork since they broke apart when we tried to pick them up. I also had a pomegranate margarita which was good at the time but I'm now nursing a... read more

Hubby and I were visiting Manitou Springs and The Hubs wanted mexican. The Loop is right in the heart of downtown Manitou, so we decided to go there. Food and service were really good! Hubby said it was some of the best mexican he has had in a long time. We will return!

Get a large margarita to share-they make lots of different kinds. I like the skinny, it is simple and delicious. Also the queso dip and the guacamole are delicious.

The hostess and waitress were both helpful, friendly and efficient. The food was served quickly. The food was good and well prepared but the menu pictures were better than the food. It was average quality restaurant food and a bit pricey for the quality.

The food and service were good. This place was recommended by a local to us. The salsa they bring with the chips is pretty spicy (which I loved) but be prepared for it if you don't tolerate hot and spicy very well.

I've eaten here twice as part of a large group and the food, drinks, and service has been great each time. I love the Molcajete and the margaritas. It's a great way to end a shopping trip with some friends in Manitou!

I had the flautas and they were great, needed extra spice so I used the chip dip that came out first to add to the flautas. The service was great!

We like to eat at the bar when we can, and we did here. Nice sangria and patron margarita with very good service by Anna. Fajitas were as they should be, hot and tasty and side of guac also good as were the enchiladas. A nice visit, friendly service and atmosphere. We'll return when in the area.

We stopped in at Manitou Springs after hiking a nearby peak. The town is so cute that we stayed longer than expected so decided to get a snack to carry us to dinner. Our host brought us to The Loop. The atmosphere matched the town so we were comfortable and glad of the choice. We only ordered a few appetizers,... More

Can't say if it was good or bad we had chips and "hot sauce" (in Texas we wouldn't have called it hot sauce, more like red water) but 10-15 minutes of getting there other customers who came in after us were getting their orders taken before we even met our waitress. So we finished our waters in hopes someone would... More
