“Great lunch stop - Cheap prices for awesome Food”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

I stopped here because of the reviews on Trip Advisor. Was visiting from Florida. I had a bean taco on corn, and a open faced bean taco. It only cost $5 and even came with free chips and sauces from the salsa bar. The two tacos hit the spot and was the perfect amount of food so I wasn't stuffed. The music on the radio sounded like a live Grateful Dead concert. Made for a good atmosphere. After eating, I went upstairs and caught my bus back to the free parking lot.

“Great margaritas!”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

Stopped in after a day on the slopes. They definitely make a good margarita and they didn't skimp on the alcohol. Hard to believe this place is literally at the bus-station (Transportation Center).

“Best Food Served at A Bus Stop”
Reviewed February 9, 2013

Seriously, who goes to a bus stop to eat? Cracks us up, but it is great food, and you can't beat the price. I seem to mostly order the grilled fish tacos which isn't a lot of food, but enough as you get a complimentary basket of chips and they have good little salsa bar so it's a nice little app. If you're really hungry, they have huge burrito for something like $8...And if you like quirky atmosphere, you got it here... Love it!

“Great Mexican on the go!”
Reviewed January 31, 2013

I think most people stop in here because it's located in the Vail Transportation Center, but I've been known to make a special trip here. Their salsa bar is great and tasty!

“The best Mexican food around”
Reviewed January 18, 2013

This is funny, but the best Mexican food we had for the past several years is at LaCantena, located in the Vail Parking Garage! Great marguerita's, casual as ever, but when your done you hop on the shuttle and your day is complete.
