Not what I expected

We went for dinner and when we walked in it was very large and could use a decor update- looked pretty cheesy. We noticed there were only a couple people when we came in, yet we waited to be seated for about 10 minutes. There were two waitresses and they were very nice. It also took another 10... read more

We went to this place twice. It is a wonderful FAMILY owned establishment. We went during lent. The restaurant was able to modify just about anything we wanted to have fish instead of pork or beef. We were VERY thankful! Wonderful staff!! Fresh food!

I am aware of the low ratings given to Felisa's Restaurant during the last few months. My wife and I are residents of La Junta so we have been familiar with the restaurant for the last ten years. Felisa's daughters have worked with her during this time doing the cooking and operational responsibilities. The work load was heavy for them... More

My beef enchilada had a rich red sauce, good flavor, piping hot. My chicken taco had plenty of meat, which other restaurants in town are not doing. The guacamole tostada was refreshing and tasty, you can spice things up with the free dip that comes first with chips. Go a bit early or late for good service, everyone in town... More

I recently decided to take a friend and my family out for dinner. After much debate with my wife I gave in and decided on this place as our dinner destination. I must say that a few months prior I had a horrible experience with my food here and swore I would never set foot in this establishment again! However,... More

Large restaurant, mostly empty.....ordering and getting actual food felt like a month long ordeal. No offer of beverage refills....had to beg for a container for left overs. Can't imagine we would ever go back.

Authentic Mexican food homemade daily. Truly one of a kind experience! Family owned and operated too (no chain food here). Love, love it!

this is a must avoid place. the second the chips and salsa arrived i could tell that the food would be terrible. it was bland. we ordered the "stuffed jalapenos" to start, which were pretty much the kind you get at a bulk store. even the soda tasted bland. my mother, despite my pessimism, decided to order a number 9...

Stay away! Food is so-so, but the service is the worst I have ever seen. I work in the area and went there for the second time a few weeks ago to give them a second chance, but nothing had changed. I now know why, during dinner hours, I was the only person in the restaurant. I waited forever for... More
