We stopped in to eat after a great time rafting the Arkansas. The server was very friendly and helpful. The food (and beer) was great!

Moving from Texas to Colorado, I can tell you that it is hard to find good Mexican Food. However, Los Girasoles is the clear winner in Buena Vista. Great selection and very consistent. Also very reasonably priced. Their Margareta special is hard to beat. I definitely recommend for both lunch and dinner.

Love the food, the margs, the chips and salsa are fresh! The atmosphere is okay and they are busy, so you may need to be patient to get your check. Chicken mole--really tender and had good flavor when I was there.

We shared the t-bone steak dinner. While the cook (or perhaps the server) didn't understand the definition of "medium rare" and the steak was done more than we normally prefer, the food was very good and plenty for two to share. We asked for and got corn tortillas as we limit gluten, and when we asked about the ingredients of the salsa and the marinade for the steak, our server was happy to ask for us. The salsa is made fresh each day, and has no sugar or vinegar, and the marinade for the steak is garlic, pepper, and salt.

Decided to try Los Girasoles for a late lunch. We stood at the front of the restaurant for almost ten minutes while the server rang up three individual patrons, and once he was finished he said to sit anywhere we wanted. Out of the 15 or so tables available.. we picked out one of the two clean ones and sat down. We ordered margaritas which tasted like straight sweet and sour and were not asked if we wanted salt on the rim or whether we'd like them frozen or on the rocks. We ordered a chicken quesadilla for $8 and it literally consisted of a tortilla, cheese and boiled chicken. No seasoning of any kind. I can make a better quesadilla in the microwave. Asked if they had spicy salsa and the waiter responded in Spanish and looked confused. I then pointed to the empty bowl of salsa and said caliente... He brought back three bottles of tabasco.. I highly suggest NOT eating at this place.
