We are summer vistors to Salida. We have always liked this restaurant. This year we heard that it had new owners. Our favorite GREAT waiter, Oscar greeted us. Amazingly the food is even better. The salsa with the chips was loaded with fresh vegetables. We ordered our usual types- my wife carne assada and me seafood. We are eager eaters... More

Another place to eat breakfast on U.S. 50 in Salida CO. Tried the short stack of pancakes and a side of patty sausage, they were more than I could eat by a half a pancake. The sausage had just a touch of heat (spice) which I liked.

Now just as mushy as the other Mexican restaurant in town, everything seems watered down. The Mexican place by the car dealership other side of road is much better. Darn it, liked it better before it changed hands.

When visiting the grandparents, it's not a complete trip without a stop at this restaurant! The meals are always amazing and they are so good about helping me find a great meal with my gluten and dairy allergies. We just love this place and highly recommend it. Like my husband said on our most recent trip, "It's tradition!" We just... More

A pretty good Mexican restaurant. I had one of their platters and I think you could feed a family of 4 from it . I have had better Mexican food and a lot worse. Atmosphere was very nice and clean. Family oriented with a kids menu also. It also had more than Mexican. Margaritas were very good another place in... More

They make food right and it is quite fresh and looks great - and tastes great. One of the few restaurants in Salida that is open for breakfast, they are extremely kind and will separate meals with a smile. Family owned and operated.

I was staying overnight in the Gateway Inn & Suites in Salida on a road trip around Colorado. I was delighted to find the Fiesta Mexicana restaurant next door to the motel, making it very convenient for dinner and beer without needing to drive. I got there quite late but was made very welcome even though it was quiet. I... More

First time visit to this restaurant on 12/14/2014, 8:00 p.m. We were greeted promptly, host and waiter were very attentive to our needs throughout our meal. I ordered the 3-item sampler plate. The chile relleno and pork tamale each in their own class were the best I have ever had in a restaurant. The chile relleno was clearly homemade, not... More

We stopped here on a whim. What a great surprise! We were seated quickly, greeted warmly, and fed till busting. We've traveled quite a bit and we only post about experiences that make us really happy or really sad. This one had us smiling through the rest of our trip in Colorado.
