Large Authentic Mexican Atmosphere

This is a big, excellent restaurant with authentic atmosphere. The food is usually excellent and the prices fair, but the waitstaff is often not the friendliest.

Our meals were fine and served quickly during a week night. However I should qualify that we don't have Mexican food too often. My husband tried to have his meal made less spicy and wasn't successful getting it done without hot spices. So recommend that if you don't want spicy foods stick to something like the beef tacos that can... More

A sad rendition of the wonderful cuisine of Mexico. We thought this would be better, located as it is just north of the New Mexico state line.

The service is extremely slow and food sub par. Mexican food is my favorite and this has just never been a place I like to go. I tried it again this summer when in town and was disappointed.

Chose this restaurant on a whim, it was open late and could accommodate a large group with no reservations The staff was knowledgeable but short, not overly friendly The food was plentiful and average price. The gratuity was automatically 15% for tables of 6 or more whether it was earned or not. Bathrooms were clean Kitchen was open to view

On mine and my husbands last stop in Alamosa we chose mexican food since it seemed like a big good thing in the area, the food was great and we enjoyed it but at the end is where everything went wrong. We had many questions as the menu was slightly confusing and I still don't think I understand it. Our... More

Stopped here because it was recommended by the hostess on the train. Bad advice. The service was slow, the food was average and not even as good as Taco Bell. And Taco Bell is less than half the price of this over priced junk. There are much better places in Alamosa to spend one's money.

Visited Oscars on a family vacation. The food was quite good. The complimentary chips and salsa for a party of five consisted of a small cereal bowl of chips and refills were charged. The service was beyond lousy. After getting our food we tried on numerous occasions to flag down our waitress for refills to no avail. Finally we asked... More

The restaurant was okay. Very clean. Wait staff was slow, food was bland, salsa was watered down way too much and still spicy. The only thing good was the chips!

We live in Oregon and have a family cabin in Jasper right outside of Alamosa. So for 20 years whenever we visit the cabin we eat here for the Chili Rellenos as you can not get authentic mexican food in Oregon. We came in after 2 when the. buffet was done and watched the meticulous cleaning for the buffet as... More
