My husband and I were in the mood for good Mexican food and decided to give this place a try. First off, we ordered the top shelf marg and I was not a big fan. I didn't like the gran gala they used for their orange liqueur. My husband had the carnitas and they were outstanding! He ate every bite!... More

Ate here with the family. Found the food to be authentic and delicious. The flavors were great although not spicy. The salsa bar was a plus to try different flavors and heat for your meals. The margaritas are a must have. Highly recommend.

A very nice experience with very nicely prepared authentic Mexican dishes. The restaurant area is pleasantly decorated with attentive staff, several eating areas and a very attractive bar serving Mexican and local beers as well as a range of margaritas.

Hungry, but not sure we were ready for dinner, we stumbled into this restaurant hoping to find a good margarita and an appetizer. We did - And then stayed for dinner! The only disappointment was not knowing about the salsa bar until after we had eaten. Obviously, we'll have to go back...

I got their tricolor enchiladas and they were amazing! I loved their tarasco sauce which to me tasted like queso. Great, friendly atmosphere. There were free chips and a salsa bar to go with them which was nice.

I expected an average experience, but was pleasantly surprised with our meal and really great service. Loved the salsa bar with lots of choices. Food was fresh and I will definitely return. I would recommend this spot to friends.

My son and I have been enjoying the food at Los Tarascos for many years now. We eat there almost every week because the food & the atmosphere are both so good. I also love that it's locally owned. I highly recommend their tomatillo salsa (one of the best I've ever tasted)!!

We have eaten here many times over the past five years. They have the best tortillas and sauces! Every meal we have ordered has been very good. Their margaritas are the best I have had at a restaurant in Fort Collins. The service is great, fast and friendly. We highly recommend this restaurant.

Thank patty5ia
