We decided to eat lunch in the quaint town and decided on Mexican. The food had little flavor, the refried beans looked to be just cream (also little flavor), and even the chips were bland. The only saving grace is that the flour tortillas were hand made. The hostess wasn't there when we entered and during our meal she kept... More

My wife and I were in the mood for Mexican food while we were visiting Grand Lake. We were on a tight schedule. We only had a hour for dinner, and we wanted to attend a lecture that was being held in Rocky Mountain National Park. We told the waiter about this and like a true champion, he was able... More

Some of the best Mexican we have had anywhere. From the burritos to tacos to the fried ice cream, everything was excellent. Only fault I would find is they don't give you chips and salsa - I guess you have to order it? We didn't ask, so not sure. Other than that minor thing, nothing to complain about. Clean restaurant...

We stopped in here for a quick bite. My kids and I shared taquitos and a burger with fries. Both were okay. My husband had steak tacos which he liked. The soda was horrible. The food was way overpriced. The place can use a good cleaning.

Sometimes the service isn't great, but the food is good especially if Carlos is cooking. If he is ask for the Tacos El Hombres, it's not on the menu.

We stopped in for late lunch early dinner. Waitress was not in the mood and the food wasn't anything to write home about. I ordered the 3 enchiladas combo. Chicken was land but the green chili was pretty good. The chips were not fresh. Hubby liked the steak nachos.

Don't bother eating the slop they call Mexican food. The crispy chile rellenos not fried properly and very doughy. The enchiladas we're not properly prepared they, they did not fry the tortilla shells before wrapping them. The chicken filling was dry fajita meat. The salsa had absolutely no flavor Kama I had to put chalupa sauce on it to make... More

The only reason we finished our meals was because every other place had a 20 minute wait & we would've missed the beginning of the fireworks show. Two beers, a nacho grande plate and a number 1 combo = $34.00 😝 flavorless and overpriced. First bite made me feel like I was at Casa Bonita (co. locals will lol at... More

Over Priced Tourist Trap. The food is substandard and way overpriced. You are eating frozen Mexican Food. The best part was the handful of corn chips you get in a very small basket. Really? 10 corn chips and one very small plastic condiment cup of salsa for 2 people. I would never eat here again.

Food was great. Service great. Ice tea was fresh. I'll have to agree what others have said about the salsa casera that comes with the complimentary chips. But I do not like that type of salsa. Never have. So, I would see for yourself. I'd go back. For sure.
