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.

A great experience all around. Despite the Saturday night crowd we had two servers taking care of us, and our drinks and chips were continuously replenished. I had the veggie quesadilla (I agree with an earlier reviewer that it was amazing) and a huge side salad. One of my friends had fajitas and the other the pork tenderloin--both were also... More

We have been visiting Ouray for many years and always eat at Buen Tiempo at least once--usually more. The deep-fried ice cream is our favorite. Their veggie quesadilla is also amazing, as is a cream based soup they serve. It's almost always busy for dinner so plan accordingly.

Our server was a delight as he demonstrated how all those dollar bills stick to the ceiling (a local Ouray fund raiser activity). The food was excellent and in giant portions. A great value for the money and I would return again.

I liked the food. Husband didn't care so much for what he ordered. Margarita was good. The server was good and made suggestions.

Our order was fouled up (very inexperienced wait staff) and another customer near us kept asking for (and not getting) attention and then stormed out angrily (rightly so)

We had a great dinner during our visit to Ouray. Some of the best beef fajitas I have ever had. Fresh, hot, great flour tortilla and an ice cold beer made the perfect meal. Outstanding wait staff - friendly, attentive, timely. Don't forget to donate a buck and see it deposited on the ceiling! Have a great time.
