Visited with my sweetheart & loved the experience from start to finish. It's a different set up in that you order from the bar as you enter then help yourself to the chips & many varieties of homemade salsa & pico-de-gallo. As the food is prepared they bring it to your table & we were very pleased with the portions & the quality of the meals. The sauces, both red & green were unique & flavorful & just the right kind of spicy. It's a little noisy in the eating area but fits nicely with the atmosphere & decor. Nothing really fancy here but really great food & a fun time out!!

I'm fine with paying above average prices in towns like this, but to make me clean my own table and shoo flies away all dinner was too much.

Had a wonderful lunch of Tostadas and the place is a gem in the heart of Telluride. Reasonably priced, freshly made, authentic Mexican food...what more could you ask for? How about a little area off the crazy streets of Telluride to sit and enjoy your lunch!

My husband and kids ate here while I had a kebab from their Mediterranean place next door. We placed our order at the counter and waited over a half hour to get it - 2 kids bean burritos and a regilar birrito. Husband said his was cold. Kids didn't even eat half of theirs. I don't know why they bothered with the 3 strands of cheese. Nothing impressive about the place at all!

The food was great, the service was exceptional, and the atmosphere was small town. We enjoyed what we ordered, wished we had room to try other things. A great meal, reasonably priced. And they have ice cream available if you have room!!!
