The food here was excellent. I'm only giving it a very good rating because the service was a little bit slow and not overly friendly. Although the chips and salsa kid was really working hard and keeping all that full. Greatly appreciated.

Our group all had something different and no one seemed all that impressed with their meal. The tacos were rather bland and needed some kind of a sauce, the spinach enchiladas were too spinach-y and the beer wasn't cold. I'd give it a poor but the staff was very nice.

I have had the pleasure of dining at this establishment twice. The atmosphere is attractive. It is a fun place for dinner and the food is wonderful. I highly recommend the spinach enchiladas.

Food here is great! My favorite place in Ouray! We are always happy with what we order! Best margarita I've ever had frozen or shaken. Going back for more before we leave back home

My wife and I had lunch at Buen Tiempo. We both had the caesar salad - she had hers with salmon and I had chicken. We also had chips and ordered queso. Both of the salads were very good - large plate with mixed greens, salmon / chicken, and avocado. The dressing was good and didn't overpower the salad, although... More

We ate here with our 3 kids and had a pretty good meal. The food is good, and there's a decent menu selection. We will definitely return the next time we have a craving for Mexican food in Ouray. Family-friendly too. The atmosphere is relaxed and the dollar bills on the ceiling are fun and make our kiddos want to... More

The service was great until our food was served, and I found a hair laying right on top of my food. It was disgusting--the waitress went in the back and came out with my plate in less than 5 min. I think she just scraped off part of the food that had the hair laying on it. The only positive... More

The service was good to the table right up until they served the food. A hair was found on one of the plates and the waitress did not see it until it was pulled out of the food by us. Not much seasoning was used in the meat. I would try other restaurants in the area
