Stopped in after a great day of skiing and had two tamales and chips and salsa. Left feeling full and very pleased with the quality of food. Small place with a good vibe and the prices are decent for a resort town. If you like...More

had dinner here with my son and his girlfriend - she and I split a burrito - there is no way I could have had one to myself - it was very good - restaurant is small, but there was room for everyone there

Tried the tacos and not tamales but was very happy. Husband tried the veggie tacos and I had the shreaded beef. Both of which were very good. Tasted similar to chipotle. Had the medium green salsa and it was quite mild. Would go back again....More

Thanks Heidi H. If the salsa isn't spicy enough for you next time check out our selection of bottled hot sauce on the wall.

This place is awesome. I have a burrito bowl with the special vegetarian. So tasty. Everyone, even the teenagers, loved this place.

Delicious tacos and burritos, the perfect quick eats after a day on the mountain. The staff was super friendly and had a great sense of humor. Not a lot of seating but you can get it go too!

These tamales are amazing. They get them from a family in denver. They run out of tamales quickly because people order by the dozen. Tamales are $2.50 each, $13 for half dozen, and $24 for a dozen. When I went they were out of the...More

Everything was delicious! Went with friends and family and will definitely go back! A little pricey but worth it.

Pricey.... but everything is in Crested Butte. What you get for the price makes it all worth it though. Not much indoor seating. Very casual kind of place. Best dang burrito I have ever eaten.

No. Teo doesn't take reservations. It is a walk in only place where you stand in line to get the amazing food. In fact Teo works best when busy when everyone orders and then looks for a seat. Nothing makes me more cranky... More
