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

If you like Mexican food, don't miss going to Buen Tiempo. They have great margaritas and a plentiful menu. Good food and staff

The place was packed but only two servers. Our neighbors at the next table had been waiting for their food for an hour. We waited 15 minutes before even seeing the server. The staff was completely overwhelmed. When the good did come out (after at least another 30 minutes wait) it was cold. The only bright spot was the hostess... More

The food was good and so was the service. We ate out on the patio. They have blue corn tortillas as well.

The food was very good. Don't know if I can say "best ever" not that there was anything wrong, just that I am a "foodie" and find LOTS of good food. It was great though!

I was a little bummed out when my son said that he wanted Mexican food for dinner while in Ouray. Man, was I wrong! We had an excellent dinner here and the service was superb as well. The kids finished off dinner with the fried ice cream which they loved. I definitely recommend this restaurant while in Ouray.

Once you get over the awesome scenery, turn your attention to the food.The chicken tacos are authentic achiote spiced, fish tacos had delicious cabbage and jicama slaw, and the green chile chowder had chunks of tender pork and it really hit the spot in this beautiful mountain location. Typical Mexican fare that is both authentic and homey. I will definitely... More

Cavallos serves up Louisiana style food and does an adequate job. We had dinner here — I'd just put it in the o.k. category. It was Saturday night in June and the place was not busy at all — half empty, not sure if that reflects the food or what, as the town was quite busy. Service was not great. Our... More

We ate here twice. Good Mexican food with a good atmosphere. The patio is great. This place has a good vibe and good food.
