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 love their Margaritas, I love their food! Best chile rellenos on earth! Definitely give this place a try when passing through Gunnison!

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

I'm sorry to come down on this place because it seems like the guy running it is trying to make a go of a difficult business, but the food was really awful. The sign outside says "If you want authentic Mexican food, eat here" or something like that. I suppose if your Mexican grandmother opened up a can of La... More

We had dinner at the Cafe Silvestre recently while visiting Gunnison. We both had chimichangas. The beef in mine had no flavor - just fried hamburger, and it had lettuce which tasted horrible after deep frying. The chips and salsa were fine. Service was good.

We have been here several times and the food is consistently good - I guess that's why the place is moderately popular. My rating is low because the service is unfriendly and there always seems to be a crowd of teenagers who know the help. The decor is a little too basic - if you want to be treated better,... More
