Small eating area and early closing are the only drawbacks to this place! The food is great, the staff friendly and its not too pricey. If your in Telluride and want good food at a reasonable price, you need to eat here, you will leave full and still have money in your wallet (unlike most places in Tellurde).

Our ginger 18 year old was mexi-hungry so our group of 6 made our way down the mountain on the gondola to fiesta at La Cocina de Luz. No one was dissappointed! From the delicious pork tamales, to the steak burrito, to my favorite soft steak tacos; everything was really delicious and fresh. The margueritas were tart but delicious. And the teens loved the Mexican bottled Cokes! 6 of us ate incredibly well for about $120. We arrived at 6 pm and had no problem pushing two tables together. By the time we finished at 7 the place was packed and we were happy to surrender our tables to hungry patrons.

This is a quaint and casual restaurant in Telluride. I live the mix and match concept on their items. Being vegetarian, I chose two soft corn tacos filled with garlic roasted veges, guacamole and cheese. The fresh chops and salsa choices were delicious too. It will be my go to spot for lunch on Telluride

Let's face it, the food in Telluride is way above average for anywhere else I have visited and most places will really blow your mind with flavor. This place is no acception. We had dinner here on our first night bc the taxi driver told us it was the best Mexi joint in town. I have to agree with him!! They have a chips & salsa bar which is super yummy. Food is prepared fresh and made quick. The margaritas are REALLY good! Everyone enjoyed their food! I had the tacos and loved them. Place gets crowded quick so grab a table when you get there and then order. It isn't cheap eats - but everything is really well made!

Yes this spot was "just right" for a burrito or chop salad. The service was excellent and food was fresh. There are mostly familiar Mexican restaurant staples like quesadillas and margaritas with a touch of telluride flair.
