Great lunch stop

We ate here after driving through the RMNP and had great food. The quesadillas were great as were the burritos! It had a rooftop terrace although we didn't utilize that feature.

This restaurant is set up similar to a Qdoba or Chipotle quick service Mexican restaurant Multiple preset entrees or make your own combinations available The portions are huge definitely big enough to share Kids menu available too Some unusual fillings to go along with the staples we expected My Mexican food loving family would eat here again

This restaurant has a Chipotle-like ordering system. You choose burrito wrap types and fillings at the counter, receive your food, and then sit down inside or on rooftop seating outside. The place is small - doesn't look like much from the outside- and sits in the middle of a parking lot by itself. However, it seemed very popular- there were... More

Very tasty for both the meat eater and vegetarian. You order at the counter and they prepare it right there, in front of you. EVERYTHING had great flavor. You get to choose your spice level. They have several choices. The portions are large. We both took home half of our meal to enjoy later. We will be back and we... More

A quick lunch stop before entering Rocky Mountain National Park. I had chicken tacos with rice and beans and hubby had a pork burrito as big as his head. Both were good and tasty. It was nice to sit outside on the roof and enjoy the warm, sunny day.

We had lunch there while on vacation and weren't impressed. The tortillas weren't properly cooked and the food, overall, was pretty bland and uninspiring, though they do have a wider variety of fillings than you get at typical Mexican restaurants. The service at the counter was also brusque. And, they wouldn't give me a spoonful of grated cheese for our... More

In brief, 3 of us ate there in September and it rates as the worst Mexican food I've ever had and borders on the worst food I've had at a restaurant. I know recipes can cross borders but the food was very bland and the 3 of us left with most of it uneaten. I feel like this establishment takes... More

Chipotle like setup, but far more interesting choices. They aren't afraid of spice, which I appreciate. The habanero queso is awesome, as is the pico de fuego. My sister is not a spice fan and still loves her meal whenever we go here. A must stop in Estes Park.

This is a great little Mexican food place near downtown. I would probably compare it to a Qdoba or Chipotle, but with a larger menu, and more of a "homecooked" flavor and style. I had fish tacos which were excellent and came with a generous side of black beans and rice. we also had margaritas, which I though were a... More
