We ate way too much there as they give you a lot of food for the price! The margaritas are enormous! Fun atmosphere.

Take-out orders are often not as good as in-house, and this review has been adjusted from a 2 to a 3 to compensate. However, the food was really not very good, and our order had several mistakes. I had requested a chicken taco, but received a ground beef taco instead. My husband ordered a dish best eaten with tortillas but... More

We had a late lunch from the enormous but authentic menu. We have lived in Mexico, New Mexico, and Colorado, this place is a great fun place for couples, families, and groups.

Traveling from Colorado Springs and encountered a ton of construction on Hwy 50 and ready for food in Salida. This is the spot if you love Mexican food - special orders don't upset them. It was obvious they had a cook who knows how to prep and dish out great home made meals. Fast and the portion was so big... More

The drab exterior really hides the wonderful dining experience inside. The food was really tasty, there was a lot of it, and the Mexican flavors were fantastic. What was really nice was to have a wide variety ot choose from as well. The wait staff was very friendly and helpful, and the interior is traditionally decorated and complete with extensive... More

The decor is festive and the staff is very friendly and inviting. The portions are incredibly large. If you don't have a big appetite, you might want to order an appetizer/a la carte option or split an entrée. You also receive free chips and salsa. (The salsa is made in house, and is deliciously spicy) The quality of the food... More

One of the best restaurants in town for "authentic" Mexican cuisine. A real treat for us. I really enjoyed their Super Burrito-its huge! Typical of what I saw from the other patrons, the servings are just biggggg at a affordable price. The quality is very good. Large interior seating set in a funky Mexican theme. There is also a bar... More

A lot of food and most of it very good, depending on what you like and what you order. More of the type of food you find in or near Mexico.

Giant margaritas and they were good!! The chile relleno plate was huge! And it was delicious! As was the enchilada plate with the sour cream and green sauce. And the salsa was awesome! Great service too! Just a bit on the pricey side for Mexican food.

Right next door to my hotel. Huge portions and huge menu. Excellent, very large margaritas. Service was very good. Food was served fast and was very tasty. I ate there three times the week I was in Salida. Definitely make this a stop.

Thank Lakerspud
