Food and service were terrific. The green chili sauce is the best I ever had. Even bought some to take home

The food was delicious (tacos, enchiladas and chimichangas) and plentiful and the service was very attentive. The cafe is small and does not offer a lot of seating. Very relaxed atmosphere. The prices are a bit steep for Mexican food--$15 for Enchiladas with Green Chili is a little ridiculous.

First the hot sauce, whoever made it must have forgot to measure cause there were whispers at several tables about the salty hot sauce, I only dipped 2 chips in it. Husband even thought so too. Our order, had they taken some of the salt out, would have been good, except my husband thought he had way too much cheese... More

I grew up eating authentic Mexican food, and this restaurant's food was far from authentic. Before getting our not so tasty food, my husband and I ordered a couple of beverages. The margarita was awful. I took on sip and left the rest. Will never go back to this restaurant. If I want good Mexican food in Gunnison I will... More

Great Mexican food. Home made Green chile, and tortillas. The service was fast and nice. Ask for a Jeremy special, he will make something off menu if they are not too busy.

I am Hispanic and grew up on home made Mexican food. No better place in Gunnison for Mexican food. Can't get any more authentic than this considering the background of the owners.

The title says it all. This was simply the worst "Mexican" food I've ever had. There was nothing redeeming about it. The service and atmosphere were equally bad, although that's almost a compliment to the incredibly bad food.

Their salsa and thin chips are habit forming! And their homemade mexican fare is delicious! It is run by the nicest Mexican-American family that all pitch in and work very hard to serve you and if you're a regular like I am, they even remember your name!

I don't know what the other reviewers are talking about... this place has the best mexican food in the entire valley! And I happen to know that everything is made from scratch, including the beans and tortillas that the first guy said were terrible! This restaurant is a mom-and-pop, family owned/run place, which may explain why there are so many... More
