“Best Mexican in Grand Junction”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2012

This is part of small chain and has lately been quite good and the best in Grand Junction for Mexican food. A couple of years ago it was not so good, but recently it has improved a lot. My wife and I and friends have had a variety of dishes in recent months and all have been good and the portions generous. I keep wondering how I can eat all that food but I do it. Grand Junction's restaurant standards are low, so this one stands out and would be rated fairly good (3 1/2 stars) elsewhere.
