Really good Tamales and Tacos. Had lunch and dinner there several times during my 3 week stay in Crested Butte. Have two more days in CB and will go back before I leave.

Everything is great. Tacos, burrito, and good beers. It doesn't matter what you order it will be tasty, fresh, and enjoyable. If it is not a tradition in Crested Butte, it will be. Go there and experience it. But if it snows the night before - you have a good chance of finding out what a "powder day" is \!

We got the fajita burrito- food was great! I noticed you get larger portions depending on who is serving you (one guy gave two scoops of most things and another guy didn't... smh). The place was packed out and we had to wait a while in line but it was a good dinner. Glad to see this offered in Crested... More

Good news travels fast, and we learned prior to arrive that this is a "must visit" kind of place. We were not disappointed. Unless appetites are huge, entrees can be easily split. Pleasant surroundings, limited seating (stools and tables) and a few outdoors.

Wandering Elk Ave after some strenuous hiking we found ourselves VERY hungry. Did we ever choose the right place! The staff were so welcoming and helpful. The burritos are huge and packed with flavor. Mrs. Was very happy and well fed with the steak burrito. The flour tortillas were really fresh and they heated them before piling on rice, black...

It may be a tiny place but it has a mighty handle on their food. All prepared to your liking you can order local favorites from their menu board or change up your order to serve you. Known for their big burritos and awesome tacos it is not only a local hangout but tourists quickly find out about the location.... More

The Burritos are huge so we chose to split one of the steak ones. They make it right in front if you and asking you about certain ingredients giving you choices. Being from Arizona we are well versed in good Mexican food--this was good! Prices better than many other Crested Butte eateries. Definitely would come again.

This place looks like just a little hole in the wall place but it had the best food in town. I order the tacos and my husband a burrito. We are so glad that we ventured in.

The food was good and cheap. I had the steak and chicken tacos and my wife had a steak burrito. It's a great place to grab a cheaper light lunch or a filling dinner. Beer is cold and ambience is down-to-earth. My only complaint is the food prep area is grimy and didn't appear clean. There was taco meat, beans,... More
