Great Mexican Food

Got take-out because we had our dog with us, and they did a great job of packaging it and even added a big bag of chips and salsa. Really tasty and reasonably priced.

Brought our German relatives to their first Mexican food experience. They really enjoyed it. Had quesadillas, nachos, and the chicken fajita salad. Everything was tasty. The staff was friendly and helpful

Not too bad, but pretty pricey. Very average food, and below-average service, but overall a decent restaurant if your standards aren't very high. Next time we'll check out a different joint.

This restaurant was recommended by the hotel staff. I could tell that the locals ate there as there was a good crowd. The food and service was excellent. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Had a very nice dinner here on our way from Mesa Verde to our hotel Cortez. We were seated right away and service was very fast and friendly. Our waiter was very patient while our granddaughter explained exactly what she wanted on her taco! Food was very good; portions were not as huge as you sometimes get in Mexican restaurants,... More

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.
