“Great Mexican Food!”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

Went here on the recommendation of the hotel and it didn't disappoint. Friendly service and good southwestern menu. Ordered Posole soup and chicken enchiladas and it was all delicious. Great flan for dessert! Definitely above average Mexican food.

“Upper Quality Mexican Food”
Reviewed October 21, 2013

The prices are slightly higher than you expect at a Mexican restaurant, but the food is higher quality as well. For instance, if you order the beef tostada it comes with shred beef, not ground beef, in a tostada shell. The atmosphere is similar to most of the restaurants in Ouray. The service was good with the server returning several times during the course of our Sunday afternoon lunch checking on us and refreshing our drinks.

“Reliable in Ouray”
Reviewed October 19, 2013

Reliable for lunch ... our annual road-trip through the San Juan mountains always includes Ouray, but on this day we were tired, hungry and wary of experimenting with dining, SO, recalling one of our earliest visits we went back to Buen Tiempo and were not disappointed. It was as good as several years ago. They have nice patio (but watch the weather and pick a table carefully). Servers seemed young & disoriented at first but welcoming corn chips were presented a few seconds after seating & fast service on the first beer gave us a breather, Salads were fresh and chili was tasty.

“Great lunch”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

Had lunch here the other day as not much else was open. Hadn't been here in years. Food was as good as I remembered. Service was fast and friendly.

“Great Service along with great mexican food”
Reviewed October 13, 2013

The best place for Mexican food in Ouray. It won't cost an arm and a leg either. Service is terrific. All employees are trained and the owners care about quality.
