Good family restaurant

We both got combo plates and were very happy with our meal. The original margarita was wonderful - very fresh and not made with sour mix. Good and fast service as well. Everything was obviously homemade

I'm from Texas and have been trying to find Mexican food in Colorado that would soothe my travelling soul. I definitely found that here. As is the case north of the Red River, you won't find much "heat" in their salsas, but Tequilas delivered on every other level. The service is personal and prompt, The food reminded me of home....

Not much to say. It's a local chain that does Mexican family restaurant style food with bar drinks. The enchiladas were good.

Perfect, great service, enchiladas and rellenos taste like they should. Don't miss this one! Server was right on top of his game. The place was clean and food was great.

The overall ambience of the place is ok. The outside of the building is a bit sterile and the inside is just ok. The Beef Chili Colorado on the other hand was probably the most flavorful that I have eaten. Often times I find the meat in this dish not very tender because restaurants use lower grades of beef.

Veggie burrito the size of my head. Incredible flan! Full bar. Eclectic decor was festive, but not obnoxious. Sometimes there are ladies that come in selling jewelry. They are very nice and the jewelry is very pretty. If you don't want to look, just say "no thanks." They are not pushy at all.

Brightly decorated cheerful Mexican restaurant with attentive and friendly wait staff. Warm nachos with spicy salsa served upon arriving. We had fajitas - chicken and beef. large servings. Both were sauteed in a distinctive sauce that I don't know if I cared for or not - wasn't bad, just wasn't really good either. Veggies were very fresh, though, as were... More

It took two different volunteers at the Welcome center, but the second one recommended Taquila's, which was just down the road. It was obviously one of his favorite haunts - and for good reason. It is set in a sunny set of rooms with colorful decorations. The meals were served on platter sized plates. It wasn't an overwhelming amount of... More
