“Outstanding and unique”
Reviewed August 11, 2014 via mobile

You can tell these people love what they do. Seems like they put thought into every part of the experience. Awesome decor. Great atmosphere. Had the cactus street taco and the fish taco, which were very good. Great queso blanco and killer salsa. The tortilla chips were fresh and tasty. Great beer selection. Not your average fajitas - smokey, spicy and yummy. Friendly service, and the manager dropped by to make sure we were happy. The only not-so-great thing was the churros. But don't let that stop you- this place is a must-do.

Thank Suzanne O

“Great Street tacos”
Reviewed August 6, 2014

Excellent street tacos including vegetarian options that you can mix and match for a great meal. Don't let the DIY guacamole fool you, it is really easy and super yummy. Also, they do have a kids menu available with more traditional options. An awesome selection of tequila is sure to compliment your evening. Servers use iPads to place orders expediting your experience without making you feel rushed.

“A new twist on Mexican”
Reviewed August 4, 2014

This space has struggled to sustain a restaurant. Bonez looks like the solution. The space is cleverly decorated, the staff seem well-trained and the proprietor is quite open that she is still experimenting with the menu, so new items appear on our several visits. Think tapas bar, then substitue taco for tapa and you'll get the flavor of this place. Not your typical Tex-Mex, I'd encourage trials on the various low-priced tacos rather than gravitating to the shop-worn enchiladas. The bar focuses on beer and tequila drinks, so don't come expecting to sip on 18 year old single malts. Overall a fun and reasonably priced experience.

“Don't Miss this”
Reviewed August 3, 2014 via mobile

Really fresh and great tasting food. A very different take on Mexican, with all the fresh, healthy characteristics plus a modern slant. We tried several appetizers and Margaritas. All were very good, the (do it yourself) guacamole was exceptional. -The cinnamon apple margarita was great and special enough to start a trend. The bar is modern, with great illumination of a wide selection of liquors. The service was prompt and personable...down right gregarious in conveying a sincere welcome. All in all BONEZ is a great ambassador for Crested Butte, so don't miss this.

“Savor every bite, Relish every sip”
Reviewed July 31, 2014 via mobile

Many of the reviews on Yelp and a couple of other sites are mediocre. Ignore them!

The margaritas are exceptional, the fajitas tasty and the tacos innovative with lovely, contrasting flavors that blend and complement each other.

Pay attention to the details of the decor - you won't be disappointed.
