Cute place, good mexican

My husband & I and our 2 friends were anxious to try this restaurant while we were in the area. We ordered the chili con queso dip and it was very, very tasty. The chips made there along with their salsa made for a great start to our meal. All of us ordered the taco & enchilada combo plate and... More

I recently returned from a trip throughout the Rocky Mountain states and dined almost exclusively on Mexican cuisine. Had lunch here last week and it was fantastic. Best salsa I've ever had by far.

We LOVE MEXICAN food, so our expectations are always high. The hotel we stayed at recommended it, and it was fantastic. It was some of the best salsa we've had. Service was exceptional, chips nice and warm, and reasonably priced.

Decided to try something different. Wow! Seafood enchiladas and shrimp taco plus tortilla soup. One big raspberry margarita to compliment the meal!

Third summer we have eaten here and the food remains good, fresh, and generous portions. The staff is super-friendly and the margaritas are large and strong. Only eaten lunch here and will return.

I'm not sure I would give this indoor/outdoor restaurant just south of the main drag a four-star rating if it was in one of the hotbeds of Mexican cuisine, like Santa Fe, San Diego, etc. However, it's not in one of those places, it's in a small town in the boonies of the Western Slope of Colorado, and not all...

We ordered 2 different margaritas and they were huge and not at all weak. Order chicken stuffed with shrimp, wrapped in bacon. Terrific! They also allowed our dogs to eat with us on the patio!!

Traveled to Gunnison and my husband took my family to El Paraiso for my birthday. What a great choice!! We all cleaned our plates and it's very rare that we all like the same restaurant. They even brought me out a birthday surprise at the end..... great choice!!
