Average food

We grabbed a late lunch - husband and I shared nachos and the kids had the chicken nugget kids meal. While our selections were probably not the signature dishes, we found the food average- nothing out of the ordinary.

I found the drinks to be very expensive, the food bland, cold and unappetizing. At this restaurant, the quality of food is not important due to the large number of tourists. It is the "pits" to be a resident of Estes Park and have such mediocre restaurants.

This is a great place, happened to go for appetizers, not a meal. Saw meals everybody else got and was huge. Daughter got appetizer tacos and asked for ground beef and corrected her as authentic and called "carnitas," not Taco Johns, ha. Was a great place, worth your money, not on strip, kinda off to side at beginning of coming... More

We have eaten at three Mexican Restaurants in Estes and this is by far the best. I had a burrito & tamale combination plate. We only ate there once. Their salsa with the chips (included with the meal) was very hot....

We had a group of adults and children, and everyone loved their food, but it took so long to arrive we thought the kids would go over the edge! The seafood enchilada was the best I ever had, creamy, lots of seafood. I've since ordered it in other cities and no where near the taste of this place. So go,... More

Stopped by early in the week after the lunch crowd. Seated promptly. Staff was cleaning the floor. Both of us ordered burritos, but different kinds. They were ones with all kinds of ingredients inside of the burrito.Both orders of burritos were cold. Didn't know if the waiter didn't bring them in a timely manner or the cook didn't heat them...

Ate here with a friend after a day of hiking in Rocky Mountain NP and found the food to be decent. The view was great and the prices were fair with good service. Overall, a nice dining experience in Estes Park!

The decor was bright and festive and we avoided the lunch rush. We lucked out and also got a seat with a view of the river. The salsa was pretty bland, but my fish tacos were tasty. All in all the food was good, but while the restaurant boasted an authentic Mexican dining experience, the flavors I tasted lacked authentic... More
