Stopped by here last Sunday morning when every other breakfast restaurant was jammed. We got right in and our meal was fantastic. Although we've been here many times for lunch or supper, we now know where to get fresh tamales, eggs and home-fries for breakfast!

We are locals and enjoyed our meal here very much. Good food, good margaritas and a friendly waitress. The only negative was an obnoxious bell which rings every time the door opens.

The food here was satisfactory, but nothing special. Chips and salsa were extra rather than complimentary like most Mexican restaurants. I had the pork dinner which was advertised as crispy on the outside, but it was definitely not crispy. Again, okay, but nothing special.

The staff and their service was the best offer for this restraunt. I had the beef steak fajitas. I was disappointed because they had no flavor. Green peppers and onions do not add the taste neefed6for

We were really craving good Mexican food & I wanted to hit someplace off the beaten path and/or not overrun or oversold by tourists. From what I could gather, this place started as a food truck & went to a "brick & mortar" location in...More

I am giving this place 5 stars because the food is homemade, from chips to salsa to entrees. The food was delicious during our visit for lunch on a weekday. It's off the beaten track of downtown Estes but worth the short trip. Service was...More

The place isn’t very big, but the food is outstanding. Our waitress was very good. The chips were excellent. Their beer selection was a little on the skimpy side, and they were out of the local beer that I wanted. Their parking lot is fairly...More
