“Stopped for dinner after the train”
Reviewed August 14, 2014

Close restaurant to the train depot and was recommended by a local. The margaritas were great. The place has kinda of a tight feel but we enjoyed the meals we had and it was served in a timely manner. A little spicy but it worked for us.

“Just as I remembered”
Reviewed August 12, 2014 via mobile

Stopped here on a family trip and it was our first time back in 20 years. Same reliable Mexican fare. Opt for the homemade pinto beans. Enjoy the sopapilla desert which is complementary.

“Unusual but good”
Reviewed August 9, 2014

It's not Tex Mex but then we didn't come to Colorado for our much loved Tex Mex Mexican food. We were told that this restaurant serves a New Mexico type of Mexican food. Having eaten a lot of Mexican food in New Mexico, I still found this food different. Perhaps it's a regional thing. The food, however, was excellent. Check it out.

“Average food if it was served warm or hot!”
Reviewed August 5, 2014

This is a bit of a "hole in the wall" restaurant. The downstairs was very hot so we moved ourselves upstairs (the staff seemed not to care that we were uncomfortable) where it was more tolerable. The menu is pretty complete. Certainly more southwestern, New Mexico that Tex-Mex. It's tough to rate the food since it was served refrigerator cold (hot on the edges - cold in the center) - TWICE! Our experience leads us to believe that this is a restaurant that just doesn't care to do it well. Good margaritas, though.

“Our Favorite”
Reviewed August 5, 2014

We eat here all the time when we're in town. It's amazing. The food is terrific, the service is great and the prices are reasonable. Definitely try the carne adovada (spicy!) and the margaritas!
