Stumbled on this gem by accident and can't wait to return for another fabulous meal! The staff and atmosphere are friendly and welcoming with ample booths for private dining enjoyment. The menu is extensive so I chose "Korita's Combo" in order to try 3 items-...Grilled fish taco, shrimp enchilada and a ceviche tostada, along with rice & beans. EVERYTHING was absolutely DELICIOUS & fresh with ample portions for $16.99. Companion had a Chile Relleno & cheese enchilada combo which was also excellent. Regular Margarita was perfect! "Skinny Margarita" not worth the extra expense. If you're going out for a great meal...eat, drink & enjoy those calories---life is too short. Ole!More

Great margaritas. We had the carnitas enchilada special and a carnitas burrito. Both were very good and the burrito was huge. Took home leftovers. Friendly and attentive service

I've been to many Mexican restaurants and this one is simply the best!! Great homemade salsa and everything on the menu is superb! Be careful of the margaritas though! You only need one!!

Very nice ambiance,tasty food and well appointed menu- the disappointment comes in the service. Wait staff aggressive, rude, zero approach to customer overall satisfaction. Our waitress litteraly kicked us out meanwhile my friend was still drinking her margarita. The aggressive way she talked to us...and her body language does not fit hospitality at all!More

Great place to go to get served what you do not order and cannot eat and get overcharged. Horrendous

Tasty cuisine and great service. Patio seating is available but we ate inside and there was so much space for social distancing, we felt very comfortable.

This is my favorite Mexican Restaurant in all of Colorado! The service takes a little longer because everything is freshly prepared - and that is a good thing! The ceviche is the best and I love the El Korita special. Great food at a reasonable...price.More

This was not our first time at El Korita. We always go for the food, but never for the service. It is to be expected here. It took over 45 minutes to get our food even though it was not busy. The waiter only came...back to check on us once.More

My husband and I ran across this precious restaurant years ago when it was next door to the movie theatre in El Jabel. The very first dish I had there was the whole fried tilapia with the seafood stuffing. I have had this every time...we have been back for over 15 years. My mouth is watering now as I think about our next visit hopefully this spring. What I appreciate most is the consistency of not only the excellent food but the great service as well. It has never been one bit below my very high expectations. There have been days while vacationing in the area we have gone for lunch and again for dinner in the same day. You will not be disappointed!!!! Thank you!!! Oh and if you like Pina Colada’s, very best I have had in the world.More

To us, it was very typical Americanized Mexican food. Gigantic portions. Lots of sauce. Loud and packed. Not bad in any way, but not special either. Exactly what you would expect.

Popular Mexican eatery with a large menu. They seem to stress seafood but we stuck with the usual. Margaritas were very good overall kind of average

My husband and I always share the fajitas here. They are delicious and very filling, we usually leave with some to take home! The margaritas are tasty as well.
