We thought the food was okay but you couldn't tell by the constant flow of people standing in line waiting to order their meals! They have a variety of dishes that are delivered to your table. Very friendly service and reasonable prices.

Stopped by there after the 4th parade with a large group. The food can out quickly and was overall good. Some small inconsistency but it was extremely busy. The waitress was extremely helpful and food came out fast. Pricey though

A great place to stop for lunch when you're walking around Downtown Telluride. Great food, fast service. There's also a stand making fresh waffle cones for ice cream. The perfect treat to continue walking the streets and enjoying Telluride.

The lamb special was tender, but very hot, rice and beans were good. Husbands Quesadilla was very minimal, and bland. Guacamole dip was very good, and the most enjoyable dish we had. Margaritas were tasted mostly of mix, very syrupy. and not worth the price....More

The soft tacos and steak burritos were a hit. A funky and casual environment. The food was fresh and the beer cold! Recommend sitting out on the side patio and near the street so you can enjoy the people watching!
