I had dinner there by my self, was given a small table in the back room by the kitchen-a bad placement for a single man, certainly was awkward staring at an empty room. The Margerita was great, but the food was tasteless and the placement on the plate was not very appetizing just kind of thrown on there. Maybe I'm... More

We got to our destination later than expected and we're looking for a restaurant that was close by. I was hoping for seafood not tacos. As it turns out, this Mexican restaurant has a significant seafood offering including octopus and scallop dishes. All of the food was well prepared and quite tasty. This is a very good stop.

When I go to a new Mexican restaurant I always try the chili verde. It's a hard dish to make and serves as a benchmark for me. I asked the server if the verde was spicy and he acted like I was an idiot, explaining that it had no beans. I asked again and finally he said that it wasn't... More

Good Food and a great place to stop on my drive to or from Colorado. All the normal dishes and cold drinks. Chips and salsa comes with a bowl of spicy slaw that is quite tasty.

This was a very good Mexican restaurant and highly recommend. Very attentive and professional service. From San Antonio, Tx , and was surprised at the quality of the Mexican food here as we pride ourselves in San Antonio as having the best Mexican food in the USA. Reasonably priced.

Tired after 12+ hours driving, we went here for dinner due to other reviews. Plenty of menu options and they were very cooperative in letting us split a fajitas order. Service was fast and courteous.

Had Dinner here one night while traveling in Colorado. Food is average for a Mexican restaurant but the drinks were above average. Nice decor and very good service. But nothing extraordinary about the food per se. Large selection of food.

The restaurant was very busy with several groups of folks who were in town for the county fair, but our server was very courteous and efficient. The dish that I always get is the chicken breast with mushrooms and bacon...not spicy and not traditional Mexican food, but very good. The seafood soup is very good - just don't eat the... More
