Esperanza's is a lively little restaurant in a basement like setting. Ashley our server was super nice and friendly and offered some great recommendations. We had chicken fajitas and enchiladas poblano. The fajitas were excellent and was a huge portion. The chicken was spiced with like 4 or 5 different spices and was quite yummy just on it's own. The...

This is the place for happy hour in T-Ride. The margaritas are strong and not overly sweet. The chips and salsa are great and who can beat half priced apps?!

Our waitress was really good and the food was decent. Solid Mexican food. Nt going to blow your socks off but you will eat until your so full and immediately wish you ate less with their decent sized portions.

Go somewhere else. This place is way expensive and there are other places in Telluride that are much better!

Two of my friends and I visited 2/1/17. The margaritas were tasty and stiff enough without overdoing it, just right. Guacamole was pretty good too and they were very much on top of making sure our chips never saw the bottom of the bowl. There are many different combinations and individual menu items on the menu. The service was very... More

While on a motorcycling trip through the back country of Colorado last summer,we stopped for lunch at Esperanza's. We were covered in dirt and mud and without batting an eye the owner happily agreed to our request of taking our meal outside. In fact, they served us on the seat of our bikes. So, our dirty group of Canadians enjoyed... More

Cozy place with good service. I ordered fish tacos that were bland, not enough lime or anything on them. The rest of our group were okay with their meals: tacos, enchiladas, fajitas. No one raved about the food, nor did they complain.

My wife and I loved the food. Both of us being born and raised in Arizona, we were skeptical about eating Mexican food in a resort town in Colorado. She had chicken mole enchiladas and I had the pollo asado, both were incredible. Tequila options were great. The staff was awesome. We will definitely be back.

Great place to get a margarita. They are made with fresh lime juice. Also, great child and salsa. Had the enchiladas and steak tacos. Both were excellent. Great beans and rice.

Great Mexican food and margaritas! Reasonable price. Friendly service. The menu is full of Mexican favorites. The chips, salsa and slaw were fresh and delicious. They offer a kids menu. Full bar.
