Food is fresh, unique & delicious. Great atmosphere nestled in a beautiful setting surrounded by towering alpine mountains. A favorite stop for many years.

We have been going to this restaurant for years and have enjoyed every visit here. The food is fantastic, the atmosphere is great (and family friendly), and the staff is usually pretty good. I would very strongly recommend the steak fajitas for dinner. The are amazing! The sopapillas are top notch for dessert. Enjoy this place but come early. There... More

I cannot possibly recommend this place. We rang up and booked a table for 2. When we arrived, we were told they made a mistake and they didn't take reservations for small groups of 2 people but there was plenty of room so it was no problem. The waitress then proceeded to seat larger groups than ours, even groups who... More

I love green chili stew and have suffered through some poor excuses of stew in other locations. Not being New Mexico I was somewhat slow in ordering it here in Colorado- but what the heck. It was cold and rainy and I gave it a shot. It was among the best green chili stew I have had. The wife enjoyed... More

I love margaritas and Buen has good ones! The food is also great. We have shown up without reservations with as few as two and as many as twenty and they are so polite and accommodating. This is an excellent place to feed famished diners after a long day enjoying the hot springs or any of the wonderful Ouray activities!

We enjoyed the food and atmosphere. Unfortunately, it did not end well. I left my iPhone when we left. I immediately returned and asked it it had been found. I was told that it was not found so I searched around the car parking area - no luck. Two week after we left, we got a call form the Ouray... More

The service is great. The food is even better. Love their chips and salsa! You will love their food and their portions are great even though it's a little pricey, you will find it worth your $$. Enchiladas and tacos are my favorite!

We used to live in the area (Durango) and would 'date' over in Ouray. Always we ate at the Buen Tiempo and always would order the same things. Why mess up a good thing? We have since moved out of the country but periodically pass through the area. Ouray is a must and Buen Tiempo top of the list. We... More

average mexican fare, lots of it, noisy bar scene, relaxed atmosphere. Good place to go if you have been outdoors all day and are tired and hungry.
