When we went by Buen Tiempo we found that it was closed. After talking with some locals we were told that the restaurant was sold and the new owners would be opening it in a couple of months under a new name. Understand that it...More

A great place for an afternoon snack (meal) of nachos and margaritas - Nachos with the roast beef are delicious and will feed two easily and leave both feeling quite satisfied. A bargain

Have eaten here several times over 2 trips and will continue to do so. Seems overall like a pretty good place. Food is good, drinks strong enough and prices reasonable overall as well.

We use to eat here regularly about 5 years ago and was a favorite of ours when visiting. We returned and were incredibly disappointed. At 6pm on a Tuesday evening they were already out of carnitas and Michelob Ultra beer. I ordered the shrimp tacos,...More

The atmosphere is nice in Buen Tiempo and the food was above OK, but not spectacular. Good for Ouray and the only Mexican restaurant in town. Stayed in Ouray 4 months, didn't go back after the first time.
