No salt on the homemade tortilla chips, served with delicious salsa. All the good was fresh, homemade & delicious! Don't miss I'd you like Mexican food.

We brought some friends to eat here and everyone enjoyed the food. I appreciate all he vegetarian choices. Be sure to give a paper bill to our server to throw up to the ceiling. At the end f the year, the bills are removed and given to charity. How they are stuck up there will have to remain a secret... More

My husband and I ate here a couple of times while in Ouray and it was delicious each time. We ordered the enchiladas with blue corn tortillas and beef meat and the blue corn tortillas with spinach and beef and they all melted in your mouth. The atmosphere was great too. They have a nice bar area, outside patio seating... More

Clean restaurant, great patio, nice/polite but unprofessional service. Our food was all ok but nothing memorable. Food all seemed fresh except the chips which almost certainly must have come out of a bag. Pasole soup was probably the best item of the group. Kids options were actually pretty good and place is kid friendly. We would eat there again although... More

This restaurant was recommended by a local. I can honestly say it was the worst food we have had in many years. The location and atmosphere are great. The service was OK. The food was poorly prepared, improperly seasoned and spiced and not edible. Their "specialty" spinach enchiladas uses cream cheese and frozen spinach. (??) It was overcooked and horrifically...

This place has fast friendly service, indoor and outdoor seating, excellent food with large portions. We make a point of eating here when ever we are in Ouray if we can. We've returned year after year and haven't been disappointed. Beware the Supreme Nachos (appetizer) is big enough to serve 4 people for dinner!

Buen Tiempo has a great combination of service and quality. Even during peak evening meal times, the kitchen is quick (especially compared to some other understaffed restaurants in Ouray). We had chips and salsa on our table in 60 seconds (we timed it)! Special orders are no problem. the food is tasty and plentiful. Overall, the best restaurant experience in... More

We ate here twice during our stay in Ouray. The atmosphere was very nice...particularly the outdoor patio with views of the mountains in every direction! The food was great...loved the enchiladas with green chile sauce. We had an excellent house margarita at the bar. Will definitely be back on our next trip to Colorado!

Was recommended to us. Just not like tex mex. We can't get past shredded beef in everything. We prefer hamburger meat or fajita beef. Probably wouldn't go back although staff and service was great!
