My wife and I were traveling across country and landed one night in Cortez CO. Our hotel made several recommendations and we tried La Casita De Cortez and were very pleased. The service was excellent, food delicious, and inexpensive. My only complaint is that it's...More

Appreciate the prior reviews. We enjoyed eating here. We tried the three item combo with shredded beef burrito, chicken enchilada, and chile relleno. It was very good. Enjoyed the bean dip which contained chorizo in the recipe! And the surprise free dessert was like miniature...More

My wife and I ate here twice coming and going through Cortez. The food was great and tasty. The staff was friendly. It was very busy both times we visited. Happy atmosphere and the other dinners seemed to enjoy themselves as much as we did.

We stopped here on our way from Mesa Verde NP. Every dish that we ordered was made fresh for us and it was very tasty. If you look at other reviewer's pictures you will see a typical Mexican fare. What pictures do not show is...More

Casita de Cortez has great outdoor seating and service--not many places in town do because of the highway noise, but Casita has its outdoor spot tucked between buildings and it dampens the noise. The fare here is average--no problems but nothing to rave about. I...More

We wanted to try a new restaurant while traveling through Cortez and hit the jackpot. My husband says he had the best seafood chimichanga ever. I make albondigas soup at home, but there's was better.

Definitely a hole in the wall place. Chicken En Mole is very good and chips and salsa is very good. I’ll be back if I’m in town again!

Very small restaurant but the entrees are absolutely delicious and the prices are very reasonable. Tamales are really tasty. Service is quick and I can't recommend this place enough. If you're in Cortez, stop in and give it a try.

Perhaps, they could accommodate a large party outside in the patio. However, the inside of the restaurant is rather small. If my memory doesn't fail me, I think there were only about 8-10 tables . Go to their web site and... More
