“Fresh and delicious Mexican food in a terrific location!”
Reviewed September 10, 2012

El Korita is located in the same town center as the newly-opened Whole Foods Supermarket, making for an excellent destination for both grocery shopping and a delicious lunch or dinner. This spacious, pleasant restaurant has seating both indoors and outside, with excellent service no matter where you sit. My partner and I have eaten here several times over the past month, and the food has been of consistently high quality, and always fresh and well seasoned. El Korita advertises itself as a Mexican and fresh seafood restaurant, and the shrimp fajitas or tacos, the mixed seafood platter, and the grilled shrimp all do not disappoint, and the menu is so extensive that there are always new dishes to try! This is surely one of the best Mexican restaurants in the valley, and I can heartily recommend it!

“Don't miss the restaurant”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

The menu is extensive, the food is good (too much of course but that's what styrofoam containers are for), and the wait staff is courteous and friendly. This is a popular place so you might have to wait for a table during prime time.

This is such a gift to the valley. Even though the new location is much larger it is still always crowded. The menu is so extensive that it takes time to make a choice. Very friendly service and wonderful margaritas. A favorite!

“Best Authentic Mexican Food in Colorado”
Reviewed August 10, 2012

My last 2 years of high school were in Mexico City. My family used to have dinner at a restaurant in the Zona Rosa, which set the standard for chile rellenos. El Korita comes as close to that restaurant as I've found anywhere in the U.S.
My family and I have been dining at El Korita for the past 15 years when we travel up to Snowmass and the quality of the food and the service has always been great. In addition to the chile rellenos, they make fabulous seafood dishes, as well as the normal Mexican fare.
Dining here is well worth the 20 minute drive from Aspen.
