Great margarita's, average food

Service is good and if you want a great margarita this is the place in Manitou. We have been here numerous times but now just get chips and salsa. Food is average at best, place is clean and again great margarita's!

Wonderful food! We had the Mini Chimis with shredded beef and the Quesadilla Supreme with steak. The service was fast and friendly. The chips and salsa were great, but the salsa is very HOT. I do believe they offer a milder version if it's too hot.

Stopped in for lunch and was surprised at how good the food was. The taco salad was wonderful and my wife had the guacamole enchiladas, which were magnificent. The service was truly friendly and very helpful.

Went for drinks and appetizers, Had one of the 32oz specialty margaritas it was wonderful! Took both of us to drink it. Ordered the coconut shrimp, was so good ordered another one. Came with a mango salsa which was amazing. Wish they had a outside dining area, as Manitou is a great people watching city. Can definitely recommend Margarita's and... More

The location is in downtown manitou springs. The Mexican food is very good and not the typical Mexican food found in this part of colorado. The have lots of choices for Mexican food with various seafood and steak selections. They have good beer and margarita choices on the menu. We will certainly visit them again.

I agree with those who said the food is nothing special. We had no issues with service as others have but the food just wasn't anything great- it truly was average. We got a pitcher of margaritas, which were very good. The guacamole is also good. My husband really liked his arroz con pollo but the rest of us weren't... More
