Great Mexican food. Not a fancy place, but the food is good. As usual, most all alcoholic drinks are way way overpriced, but the food is good and not too expensive. Service was slow. They need to hire more help. AVERAGE VALUE.

Should have belive the other reviews. Service was unbelievable slow. It took over an hour to get our food. The wait staff was unfriendly. I have had better food at taco bell. The guacamole tasted like it was out of a pre made plastic container. The only good thing was the tortilla chips . Plus the waiter tried to double... More

We went here with the family, and the service was awful. The waiter was rude. When we were paying the bill, the receipt machine broke, and we ended up waiting for probably fifteen minutes so they could fix it. When they did, the waiter was very rude while we were finally getting our receipt. Several months later we came back... More

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
