“Great food at a great price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2012

I have been going here for many years and I have never been disappointed. I am looking forward to going after the remodel is complete. The service is fast, the prices great and the food very good. I always get the same thing, I should venture out and try something different sometime!

“Great breakfast, too. Don't be deterred by the remodel!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2012

The map has been corrected here on tripadvisor, which is good.

We took family from Ohio here for breakfast. Great breakfast, very inexpensive. Coffee is a little on the not great side, but OJ is good. Our favorite is the vegetarian skillet smothered in hot green chile. Fantastic breakfast!

Don't be deterred by the remodel - it is separate from the rest of the eatery.

“Best (and least expensive) mexican food in the Golden area.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2011

As of 8.9.11, this is shown incorrectly on the map as being near the railroad museum. It is not - it is on South Golden Road, east of King Soopers by about .5 mile. We have been going here for 5 or so years since they did the remodel (and before they did the remodel on La Carreta #1, which is now El Dorado, also shown incorrectly on the map). We still really enjoy going, and enjoy their food. Take out is a nice option as well. We think their crispy Colorado style rellenos are fantastic, as well as their cheese enchiladas (we think the cheese version is better than the chicken or beef). We also think they have the best Colorado style (with pork) green chile in Denver Metro - better even than Santiagos and Brewery Bar. Their house margaritas aren't the best, but all of the food is good. We also really enjoy the fish tacos - made with seared catfish. For this visit, we went with my mother in law. We all enjoyed our meals, and the price is always right. Highly recommended.
