Good But Fairly Routine Mexican Food

Nothing really stands out as either real good or real bad. We come back every year, so I guess that says something. We recognize the staff from past years so they are steady. Food prices are a little on the high side, but I'm sure the location overlooking the San Juan River Walk downtown has... read more

Great location, but lousy food and service. I would not stop here again. Service was slow and food was mediocre at best. Facilities are run down and dirty.

Terrible. My husband and I went in there for a drink and appetizers. The greeting person was rude from the begining. We sat at the table overlooking the river and the springs. We ordered 2 drings. Me the blue lagoon which came in a tiny glass and my husband the sangria. They have being the worst smallest expensive cheap shelf... More

We got attitude as soon as we walked in, and it never ended. We stopped in for a beverage as it was raining outside. We told them up front, that we just wanted to get ourselves and our kids a drink. Well, that must have been a mistake to tell them that. The person who sat us in our booth... More

This was our first time in Pagosa Springs and stopped here for a bite to eat. It's location is right by the San Juan River Scenic Overlook, so it is a very convenient place to stop and eat. But don't fall into the trap!! Everyone there seemed mad or unhappy to work there and didn't have the welcoming attitude you... More

I don't normally give bad reviews but I feel obligated to write this one. This place is a tourist trap. It is extremely over priced and the food is the cheapest Mexican you can get. We felt sick afterwards. The service was nothing special. The entire staff seemed to have a chip on their shoulder. Don't do it.

We had a great dinner on the deck over looking the river and hot springs. It was a short walk from the hot springs hotel. My husband had their shrimp and rice, I had their chicken enchilada with mole; very good, we will visit again.

Given some of the other reviews, I was expecting the food not to be that good. But it was actually pretty good and more like the type of Mexican food that we are used to in Southern California. And the close proximity to The Springs Resort made this the place that we went to. We were not disappointed.
