Average at best. Bland food. Seated in an annex which had zero atmosphere or anything pleasant about it, and the restaurant wasn't even full. Wine close to paint stripper. Avoid.

This is the second time I've eaten here in the past year. The food is great, the atmosphere is great. The restaurant is very clean. Love this place.

The Loop has won many awards for their margaritas and boast the "world's largest margarita." I am not sure it is the world's biggest but it is pretty big. The menu is quite extensive; I gauge a Mexican restaurant's bona fides if they serve Molcajete and runny, traditional refried beans and they serve both! Highly recommend the Loop.

Didn't realize (by the name) this was a Mexican restaurant but after we were inside that was obvious. Oh, what the heck- menu says they were voted best margarita in the area!!! The margaritas were good (if u like margaritas & don't have to drive get the large) as were the chips & salsa. My husband enjoyed his beef enchiladas... More

Excellent food, great variety and generous portions. We went in for a light dinner. We each ordered a taco and the 9-layer dip. The dip was from the appetizer menu and it was large enough for four people to share! Very good! The tacos we equally good. Excellent service and nice, friendly atmosphere.

Our service was great, atmosphere was pleasant, not too pricey, and the grande margaritas are amazing and are no joke!! The best ones ever! Overall would recommend. Definitely check out if in Manitou Springs.

First time in Manitou Springs, went to The Loop on the recommendations of a friend. Outstanding food (The Loop burrito, supreme quesadilla), and great service. Right in the middle of the shopping area, with a lot of really interesting shops. Would go again... actually, WILL go again if time permits.

We've eaten at this restaurant a number of times and we really like the food selection available. They serve traditional Mexican dishes but also offer a number of other dishes. Try the Mahi Mahi - it comes with a delightful cauliflower mash and steamed vegetables!

My wife and I have given the loop four tries now and it never gets any better. The service has been horrible every time we have gone. The food is mediocre at best. Way too expensive for what it is. There are much better Mexican choices all over the city. Don't waste your money here.

We were tured on to this place by many friends. We were so disappointed that we spent that much money and did not enjoy not even one bite. We had to send our food back a couple times and its like they just heated it up in the microwave and never cared about anything because they were getting their tip... More
