Upgrade the Nachos!

Terrific nachos. We upgraded to carne asada and we are so glad we did. There was the perfect amount of cheese, meat, sour cream, veggies and chips! The house margaritas were also fabulous! I recommend this place for a great atmosphere and terrific nachos!

Food was so good we ate here twice during our stay. Very nice outdoor patio with view of cascade waterfall and plenty of shade. Gotta try the nachos- huge and delicious. Also had an excellent meal salad with home made dressing. Burritos were really good too.

I wish there was a spot for negative stars. With a small town like Ouray that thrives on tourism you'd home there would be good service or even 50%. We went to this dive 1 hour before closing time (9pm) the place is packed, excited for some Mexican food, our favorite. Instead we waited 20 minutes to order. After we... More

We ate so much I thought we wouldn't be able to leave! Great food and lots of it! The prices were decent as well. I highly recommend Buen Tiempo.

I loved the fish tacos, and my friends enjoyed their meals as well. Great service and staff. Nothing to dislike here.

I had a hard time rating this because I am from Texas so I have high expectations of Mexican food but it really was just okay even for Colorado Mexican food. The queso was not very appetizing but the fajitas were not bad. It looked like they had good desserts and my margarita was pretty good. I had to rate... More

Had the Chicken Enchilada, which while not outright bad was some of the blandest Mexican I've had. Possibly I was spoilt by the Mexican food I've had in Arizona a couple of years earlier.

We checked out a few restaurant in town since we were there 3 days and Buen Tiempo was the best by far. My husband had the fajitas and I had the fish tacos...food was excellent and plenty of it, but did notice margarita was a bit on the weak side. We were surprised that Ouray doesn't have better food to... More
