Believe we've found one of the better Mexican restaurants in Colorado Springs but after only checking out about 15, we're still trying. This looks like a chain restaurant and feels like a chain restaurant but very good food and service nevertheless. Went on a Sunday night at 7 PM and only waited 5 minutes. We're told waits of upwards of 1 1/2 hours is the norm. (good place, but that is a crazy wait).
Poblano de pollo - excellent; Applewood chicken stuffed Anaheim - excellent; Original fish tacos -very good but the mango habanero salsa needs a warning sign, really. The waiter should warn you. We are from Arizona and that stuff will kill your taste buds; carnitas burrito -very good; pork green chili was "industrial" tasting, not fresh or original tasting. Chile Relleno was terrible. Looked like they took a chile pepper, put cheese in the middle, folded a flour tortilla around it and deep fried it like a Chimichanga. That is NOT a chile relleno. That entree needs a big change. The food came exceptionally fast to have too much of our meal made fresh, but the variety of sauces did help. Wait staff was exceptionally good. Four adults, four regular meals and four small beers for $90 incl tip. That seems like a good value.
