Margaritas were okay but didn't help ease the pain my legs were in after the climbing of the Manitou Incline. The food was fairly priced. The service was fast, friendly, and pleasant. I would stick with the beef nachos. I was slightly disappointed but it...More

Went here on a Tuesday evening after a concert in the park. I was prepared to give a luke-warm review because the kitchen was SOOOO SLOOOW. Seriously, I'm not sure how they got so far behind but I have never waited this long for Mexican...More

Hard to find parking anywhere in Manitou Springs. We had to hike several blocks from parking lot to Loop. Food was ok, crowded and busy for lunch. Tables are so close together, no privacy.

Good food, crowded, noisy Mexican restaurant in the heart of Manitou Springs. Not a place to write home about, but if you're looking for a dinner that will fill you up, possibily have some left overs, this is the place.

Cool little Mexican restaurant in downtown Manitou. The food was good and the service was good. Great little place to stop for a quick bite. I did think it was a little over-priced but not terrible.

Walking around looking for a place for dinner. Glad we went in. They serve Mexican food. It was quite good to my surprise. Large portions. Good service. I would recommend this place.

While this wasn't our first time eating here, it was the first time we left disappointed. I've never received a vegetable burrito with cauliflower, snow peas and carrots from a Mexican restaurant before and as a Mexican vegetarian, I've eaten a few Mexican vegetable burritos....More

While the place was cute and in a great location, we expected something out of the ordinary. The margarita tasted like every place else and not the best we ever had. The appetizers were just marginal so we left.
