Great locals place with the best green chili in the San Luis Valley. They were very serious about COVID-19 precautions, everything was super clean and everyone, including the local patrons, were very friendly. Great discovery for us!

One of the best places for Mexican food that you will find. Fantastic flavor, hearty portions and great green chili. Service was very good and tables spread out for safety. Great place.

We were seated by pleasant hostess in Des’ (Desiree’s) section. She was so lovely and really connected with us making suggestions on the menu and it showed how much she enjoys her serving position. She gracefully asked my name so that she and her team...could sing me Happy Birthday for our special dinner out. We so enjoyed our meal.More

I have eaten here a few times and the food is always good! It’s a real mix of American, BBQ, and Mexican. The staff are always at your table and they are always present and funny. If you get a chance make sure to stop...by!More

We stopped in for a late lunch on a Saturday afternoon. The name doesn't doesn't accurately describe the type of restaurant that it is. We had Mexican the day before and not looking for that again,but Prime Rib was the Special so we decided to...stay. It came with salad and potato. No salad bar or soup. There were only two dressing choices blue cheese or ranch, not my favorites, but we pressed on. I should have known something was wrong when we asked for medium rare Prime rib and the Waitress said that it only comes in medium well. Everyone knows a Prime rib is well done on the ends rare in the middle and medium in between. When our meal came out the prime rib was cold, not warm but cold. The baked potato was hot and the best part of the meal. We didn't send them back because we knew they would microwave them and that would make them worse. The Waitress was very nice so we tipped her well. The place is clean and really cute. But if they chose not to roast Prime rib but to buy them in packaged krovac, let your customers know ahead or don't sell them at all. This Subpar meal cost us over $ 40. With tip and no alcohol.More

We had dinner and breakfast at the Mountain View and both experiences were excellent. Good steak for dinner and some of the best green beans I have had in a restaurant. The cheesecake was to die for! Breakfast the next morning was yummy and the...breakfast burrito was generous and delicious. If we are in the area again, we will definitely return.More
