“Great Mexican”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2015 NEW

Took the family to eat and didn't really love the kids menu. But....we split the fajitas, shrimp and steak, and ordered a plate of chips. The gave us extra shells and we had lots for our family of five, youngest is 4. Delicious food!! Would totally go back for more. Not cheap food but with splitting items is came out to a good price.

“Good food and atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2015 NEW

Good service, massive portions. We had a burrito and it was enough to feed both of us as we weren't overly hungry. We sat at the bar and enjoyed the chat with the bar man. Nice interior. I did feel slightly guilty throwing monkey nuts on the floor but the bar man reassured me that's what they pay someone for to sweep it up.

“Fun place and good food at reasonable prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2015 NEW via mobile

Ate here with friends after a day's skiing at Lake Louise. Very welcoming staff. Lots of choices on the menu. Our server Sean, was very helpful and attentive. Highly recommend the quesadillas and gringo salad.

“Ok, but Nothing Exceptional”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2015 NEW

What can one say, no need to excelling. A resort town where the business relays less on locals/regulars than it does on tourists hoping for a fun experience based on the sector. While there was nothing particularly wrong with the meal or the service, there was also nothing memorable.

“Good Mexican in the Rocky Mountains”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2015 NEW

Stopped in for lunch on a Sunday when in Banff. For having just opened, the place fills up pretty quick! We've heard some great things about this spot and decided to give it a try.

We had the Banffo Burrito and the 3 taco meal.

The burrito was AMAZING! it was a big portion and the fillings were perfect. The meat was moist and full of flavor and the house-made guacamole was outstanding. The only thing that was odd is the salad that was served with the dish. Next time I'd ask for the salad to be substituted for something else (like rice).

The tacos were equally as good. The beef tacos had great flavor and toppings and the chicken taco had some nice heat to it.

Service was good. They were on top of the tables but not in a intrusive way (which can be REALLY annoying).

We will certainly be back for another meal next time we venture down to Banff!
