“Detailed directions to a very good Mexican restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

Great place as the previous reviews state. However, directions given are poor. This eatery is between MM 240 & 241 on Hwy 285. It is on the south side of the Hwy in the Stop 4 Gas station & Mini Mart. There is an old (un)covered wagon in front. Look for the silver flag-pole and American Flag in front. Hope this helps.

“Neat restaurant tucked away off the highway.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013 via mobile

Had trouble finding it so finally called. It's further down the road than you might think. Very friendly people and good service. For table salsa they brought out some pretty spicy stuff, a milder pico de gallo that was really fresh and crisp and a plate of beans all served with lots of chips. All really good. I thought the meat in the al carbon was only average but someone else in our party thought the relleno was xlnt. Worth the drive after a visit to red rocks.

“LOVE”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

Too bad for the people who have trouble finding it, because you are missing OUT! We love this place and their food. Great quality and service. Definitely not worth the money, because they should be charging much more than they do. :)

“The best Mexican food and atmosphere anywhere!!”

This place has an outside patio. Nice cozy bar and a very nice restaurant area. The best Mexican food in the area.

“No regrets - in fact, make it a regular stop!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

You have to know what you are looking for - a small Mexican joint that is in a gas station, off off 285, easily missed - but once you have found your way in, you will most likely be back. Not very busy evening, obviously popular with local families, service efficient, and the food really quite good. Plenty of it, too. A bit of an unlikely spot, but what they do, they do right.
