“Authentic Mexican eats”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2012

Visiting Salida CO on business from Houston TX. Went for the "authentic" instead of the Tex-Mex I love and am so used to. Their chicken taquitos are to die for. I had them with their pico de gallo and homemade salsa, which is also killer!! The restaurant apparently recently moved to a new location on Hwy 50 in Salida (near Walmart). Extensive menu - moderately priced! Booyah!!!!!

“Do NOT Miss Eating Here Before You Head Home!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2012

OMG! Where do I start. Umm Ok how bout salsa? Thee BEST salsa on the planet!
I live 3 hrs away and we always bring mason jars to fill up and take home. That's how yummy it is!

Generally me and a friend go on vaca trips in that area and Los Girasoles is part of the activity list we generally stay 20 min away. It is not uncommon for a 3 day trip to eat there twice. Oh, my goodenss I am drooling just thinking about your yummy food. Looking forward to seeing you in the summer!

“Food straight out of Mexico!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2012 via mobile

We had dinner at Los girasoles in September 2011. We were pleased with the service, food, atmosphere and price! The best enchiladas and corn chips and salsa I have ever had! Will definitely recommend and go back!

“Great new location.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2012

This is a family owned Mexican place with friendly service and a good variety in the menu. All of the standards are available, along with some nice sea food items--like the shrimp in a creamed sauce. The prices are reasonable, the guantity good, and the quality consistent. The Cadillac Margarita is especially good.

“Great Mexican Food in Buena Vista”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2012

Finally good Mexican food in Buena Vista. Warm chips, home made salsa, decent portions, but not too large or cheesy. Easy to find right on Hwy 24.

Decor is that of an old diner, so pretty dated..

Service was friendly and attentive.
