Good mexican food, pleasant staff.

Was passing through town on a motorcycle ride on the Million dollar Hiway. There was a Toyota offroad convention in town, so the restaurants were all packed. We managed to get a table here and despite being busing, the staff were quite pleasant, and got a decent meal.

My family of 10 traveling through town from San Antonio, TX were worried about finding a place that would be able to seat and serve us. Been Tiempo seated us promptly despite being busy. The servers were really wonderful and friendly, which was very surprising. The food was delicious. We will come back next time.

We have been dining at Buen Tiempo every summer for at least the last ten years (during our annual jeep trip) and have never been disappointed by the food or the service. On our most recent visit I had the steak fajitas and the steak was perfectly cooked with just the right amount of char and was so very tasty.... More

This place is great for the whole family! We ate there with a large group (20+) and loved every bit of it (especially the food)! The staff was friendly and very attentive for such a large group, just be sure to make reservations in advance because it is a popular place to eat!

If you are not in a hurry and want dishes covered in cheese and no other flavor this is your place. I see why it's not real busy in there. Anyone with sense would never go twice.

We are also from Houston and had heard from co-workers in Colorado that this was a great place. They joined us there and we were very happy with the food. Margaritas were great and fajitas were very tasty although well done. We had a group of 8 and everyone enjoyed their food. The place was not busy when we arrived... More

Many types of margaritas, tasty new Mexican food, and a wonderful patio for dining outdoors when the weather is nice. Both my husband and I really enjoyed our meal there.

Being from Houston where we have lots of good Mexican food, I was a little hesitant, but we'd eaten just about everywhere in Ouray, and the kids wanted Mexican food. The margaritas were very good, and the bar was long and looked like a good place to hang out. We waited about 10 mins for a table - enough time... More

When we came in for lunch, the restaurant was not busy, but our waiter was sloppy and not attentive. Despite this, the food was good, and I would consider going back.

We ordered the tostadas. It came in a deep fried tortilla salad bowl. The food was okay, but felt we were rushed as the hostess asked us what we wanted for drinks. We were not yet seated with the menus still in her hand.
