Better than anticipated!

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.

Love this place! Great Margaritas, salsa bar, and Carne Asada! The atmosphere is great for dates or family events, and the service is always awesome!

Just passing through during our travels. It was late, they were closing shortly, but we were greeted very friendly. Menus are different than what we are used to, no white chesse dip/sauce, no Fajita Nachos, no dishes with ground beef. It took us, a party of four, a few minutes to choose what we would try. I chose the Enchiladas... More

Easy to find for visitors! Right on one of the main streets in Fort Collins. Great from the start -- house margaritas (one goes a long way!), chips and a wide selection of salsas from the salsa bar. Then, after reading the very large menu for SEVERAL minutes, just close it and order the Enchiladas de los Tarascos -- that... More

Los Tarascos has been in Fort Collins for many years. They moved from a smaller location several doors down to a newer and larger location where they are currently located. Their menu is now much larger, too. First the bad news, and then the good: Our chips were stale and not very crispy, tasty or salty at all. (I always... More

The white sauce shredded beef enchiladas are freaking out of this world. I highly recommend the midori margarita! I have a fabulous meal every single time I am here. I highly recommend stopping in.

This is one of the best Mexican restaurants I have had the good fortune to visit. My friends and I shared our entrees with one another. They were fabulous. The service is outstanding. The margaritas are SUPER delicious and strong--even on Tuesdays during Ladies' Night when they are 2 for 1. Who gives you a strong drink when it's 2... More
