Coming from Phoenix.... I have had lots and lots of Mexican food! Trust me when I say that La Cocina de Luz is fantastic. It is so wonderful to see the growth and success of this restaurant that used to have the tiniest space and a couple tables... and now a large street-front restaurant with the same personal service by the nicest people. The salsa is so fresh and delicious and every menu item that I have tried has been so enjoyable. And you must try the margaritas! No machines or commercial mixes here! A trip to Telluride includes multiple visits to La Cocina de Luz every time.

Good Mexican food that fits the budget and fills you up. It is very popular with the locals so very busy. They have a salsa bar and a juice bar. Add in some of their homemade ice cream with interesting flavors and you'll leave full and happy like we did.

We had a great lunch here today and I would highly recommend it. Nothing fancy but lots of food on the plates and all of it will great, authentic favors. We find it difficult sometimes coming to Telluride and finding a decent meal at a good value. La Cocina de Luz does just that and I look forward to returning.

Burritos are large, carne asada was delicious, and the chicken fajita was to die for. Great margarita too!

This Mexican based menu is over the top in value and taste. We eat here once a week. Great ice cream has been added.
