Best Restaurant in Pueblo!

If you've never been to the Mill Stop, it's time to change that. This is one of the best restaurants in Pueblo, despite appearances, and there is almost always a line waiting outside.

This was the worst "Mexican" food I've had in years. I ordered cheese enchiladas because the flautas were made with flour tortillas instead of corn, as they shoud be. The enchiladas were filled with someting akin to Cheez Whiz, at least it tasted like Cheez Whiz. The red chili it was covered with was the color and consistency of tomato... More

Sometimes there is a wait. The food is always great and so is the service. Very seldom are they not busy. Food is worth the wait. A great little family owned restaurant. We have been going there for over twenty years. Love it.

They have very good lunch specials but my meal of choice is a power breakfast. If you like "heat" get some poncho salsa. I'd go with an "excellent" rating but if you want to enjoy this great food you have to do it Mon.-Fri. with 8:00 a.m. opening. Sorry they're closed on the weekend

This a very busy place which definately says something about the restaurant. We've been there many times and the food and service has always been excellant. Staff there work as a team and always strive to make you feel welcome and appreciated. My favorite is the Mexican omelete but I've never been disapointed with any meal I order. You usually... More

Based on reviews, I went here for lunch while in Pueblo. It's a rather small cafe and was pretty busy at lunchtime. But, there were plenty of seats at the counter. Service was helpful and very friendly. The Cafe has a local feel which was very welcoming, something you won't find at a chain restaurant. Breakfast is served all day.... More

Only the best Huevos Rancheros you ever had. Everything on the menu is outstanding. In twenty years I have never had a bad meal.

The best sopapillas period! After you have finished an incredible Pueblo traditional style mexican food dinner and are in a chile infused stupor out they trot with the sopas! Even though you are stuffed you slather these gems with the cinnamon and honey and let them work their magic, aah so nice! This a joint that you will return to... More

On our way home and pulled off I-25 for lunch, craving REAL Mexican food. We stopped here because of the reviews on TA. We were not disappointed! We always look for local places and this was obviously a local favorite, it had a waiting line at 2pm! Service was friendly, the whole place was friendly! We were treated like we... More
