We were lucky these folks were open late. We had a wonderful meal. Super Margaritas. All the food was fresh. Great salsa and chips. I had the carne asada plate which was excellent. Staff was very helpful and friendly. I have no problem recommending this place to eat.

The Margarita Original is the best margarita in town. I like the chile verde the best. Usually friendly/attentive servers.

Read positive reviews and gave it a try. Price is reasonable and food is great. We ordered chicken burrito, seafood enchilada and guacamole. Everything tastes fresh. It is located in a strip mall, which may be hard to find parking during busy hours. I wish that the server could speak English better.

Just finished visiting Mesa Verde National Park and we were spending the night in Cortez, CO. Not a very large town but a local suggested this place. Wow he hit the nail squarely on the head. The food was great, the beer cold and the service was great. Not that I will ever be in Cortez again, but if we... More

We all thought the food was not spiced enough, but good service and large portions offset any issues.

After eating at the outstanding La Casita de Cortez the previous day, this restaurant suffered a little in comparison, but we enjoyed our meal here during our trip to see Mesa Verde. The service here was friendly and attentive, their margaritas worked their magic for us, and the food was very good. We especially liked the enchilada sauce. This was... More

We visited this restaurant early in the afternoon. There were a few other patrons in the restaurant. We were quickly served chips and salsa and water. We waited 10 minutes before our order was taken and another 20 before our food arrived at our table. We watched other tables who arrived after we did get their food before we were... More

Thier special house margarita was incredible. Hand made sour mix and muttled ice. A great combination between frozen and on the rocks!
