THE place for eclectic and Southwestern style Mexican food. The red chile enchiladas were the best I've ever had. I'm usually skeptical of Mexican food buffets, but this was outstanding. The cook made small portions so everything on the buffet table was hot and tasty. Hope to go back soon.

Hands down the best Mexican restaurant that I have ever eaten at. The buffet is incredible, the help friendly, and the food fresh.

Who is writing these rave reviews? I actually had to check the address after we left to make sure we hadn't stepped into the wrong place. This restaurant was a dive! It seems there are limited options in Alamosa, but even if this is the best, it can't warrant higher than 2 stars!

The buffett had a good variety of Mexican and New Mexican food, granted, but the quality was poor. The rellenos looked like they'd been sitting there for days. The tamale was fair -- Probably the best thing we had. Posole wasn't too spicy, and the pork looked undercooked in places. The desserts were just blah.

It was about $12 per person, which is a great price for a buffett, if it's good. I would rather have skipped lunch altogether, after having eaten here.

We stopped here after hiking up the Great Sand Dunes--found the place on the recommendation of other TripAdvisor reviews. The lunch buffet was going and seemed incredibly popular; we opted for the menu which did not disappoint. Highly recommended.
