The food was great, reasonably priced, and the serviçe was great. Although they only have one type of salsa, when we asked if they had anything hotter, the server made a more spicey version for us. He also added some roasted jalapeños to my wife's plate. The restaurant is also very easy to find as it is on the I-25... More

This is a definite "must try" if you are in southern Colorado. The Carne Asada plate was HUGE, but the flavor was even bigger. I asked the waiter if they had hotter hot sauce, and even though they didn't, he added some chipotle to some of their hot sauce just for us. He also added some roasted jalapenos to my... More

They had more than the typical Mexican fare. And it was very tasty. My husband said the pork was some of the best he's ever had. I tried the Mexican stir-fry and thought it was a great alternative to more typical Mexican fare.

We were on our way home from an amazing trip to Texas and we found this restaurant on this site. Everyone in my family thought the food was absolutely delicious. I ordered the fajitas texanas. OMG - the flavor of the meat was perfect! Sizzling onions and peppers, beans, rice sour cream and guacamole made it perfect - and don't... More

We looked online to find a mexican restuarant near our hotel. The food was very good, large portions. The cabbage salsa was awesome. The wait staff was VERY friendly and attentive. We have ate there 2 times on our travels to Denver to deliver dogs to rescue. We will be eating there every time we go through there.

We ordered food items recommended by the waiter and were not disappointed. My dish was mild yet flavorful - just the way I like it. Cheese dip was tasty. Excellent waiter who remembered that my tea was half sweet, half unsweet on all 5 of my refills!

Great Mexican food, and one of the better margs I've ever had-they serve it in a mini-margarita glass, and you get the rest in a martini shaker! Food was surprisingly delicious, and the atmosphere was warm, cozy, festive and authentic. Great place to stop on a road trip, or if you are on a stopover in Trinidad. I'd be here... More

We travel through Trinidad quite often on our way to and from our cabin and this is really the best place to stop for a delicious, quality meal on either side of Raton Pass. The service is always excellent and the quality of the food is well above par. At first the prices can seem high to "small town folk"... More

I love going here. The salsa and cabbage are so good and I reccomend ordering the fajitas or a burrito. The staff is very nice and friendly.
