We split the shredded beef burrito with the delightful corn salsa and had a pork tamale (hot!) on the side - total $12ish. Plenty of food for two people and tasted fresh & yummy. It was everything we remembered from last year except we did not see the pork burrito on the menu. Recommend you spend some time people watching... More

Visited here with my daughter and we both ordered chicken burritos. We were getting a late lunch (3 pm), so was happy that everything was fresh, not at all dry and absolutely perfectly seasoned. The employees were friendly, fun and quick in preparing our food. The tables and floors were clean and the atmosphere was fun! My only complaint was... More

The staff creates the perfect burrito according to your specifications for a delicious "fueling" after a hard day skiing.

This place has great reviews that honestly aren't deserved in regards to quality. The chicken was dry and their steak was bland. Four a Mexican restaurant to get 4 or 5 stars they need to make their tortillas homemade, the chicken has to be moist, and the steak flavorful. The staff were super friendly and fast. They have their own... More

Very fresh food, delicious authentic tamales. One thing: if you ask if the chili verde sauce is spicy and they say no, just remember that they're used to it and it actually is quite spicy! Still very flavorful, though. Service was quick and friendly. Price point was excellent!

Little taco burrito joint. Really fresh ingredients. Very, very tasty. Nothing fancy. The staff has fun and shares that fun with you. The very casual atmosphere keeps us coming back. Great place for locals as well. One of the more affordable places in CB.

Teocalli is home owned, the service is fast and friendly and yes the taste is Colorado fresh...and surpasses Chipotle in every class of taste...The tamles are homemade and fresh and the taco's and burritos are the best in my experience to your...

The only "bad" thing I have to say is that they were out of mahi-mahi...so I had to get the steak tacos and try a gourmet veggie taco. I was not disappointed. Plus, now, I get to go back whenever they do have mahi-mahi (I have a thing for fish tacos)...and if they're out then...oh well, eat something else as... More

This was my first time at the Crested Butte location. I was a frequent visitor to their Herndon, VA, location (when I worked in Reston more than a decade ago) and I still remember it fondly. The chicken burrito was great. The beef & chicken tacos (they were out of fish) were very good as were both versions of tamale.... More

Teocalli was highly recommended to us, so we came here for dinner. The staff was very friendly, and very helpful for the few questions we had about the menu. I ended up getting one of their specialty tamale plates, with green chile and rice/beans. My husband got a taco plate, which comes with 3 tacos. it was a ton of... More
