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!

This is a nice, clean restaurant that serves very good Mexican food. The Enchiladas Suiza & the Sopia combination plate were the best that we had tasted. The server-Sergio- was very attentive & courteous. The prices were affordable. We will definitely eat here again.

Almost everything was perfect. Even the kids who are not big mexican food fans tried new things and cleared their plates. Chips & salsa was a great start. Fajitas and combo platters were right on the money. Fresh, flavorful and the right amount of heat. The service was wonderful. Margaritas and Shirley Temples were delicious. Kids said the best ever.... More
