What a find!!! This restaurant is way off the beaten path and it looked as though mostly locals eat here. We quickly discovered why the locals love it. The service was the best we had in all of Estes Park. I think nearly every single staff person checked to make sure we had all we needed and they were so friendly it was a pleasure to dine here. The food was wonderful - nothing fancy just really good mexican food. We both agreed that of all the places we ate during our week long stay in Estes this was by far our favorite. Make sure you put this restaurant in your plans!

Great food and great prices! Ask to try the Candied Jalapeños! Owner told me how he makes them and I am now making them here in PA. Looking forward to our next visit and going back for some authentic Mexican food!

We are semi natives in Estes Park and have never really been satisfied with any of the Mexcian food restaurants. We tried El Mex/Kal and were pleasantly impressed. The wait staff was very friendly and attentive and the food was really good.

First visit here, really enjoyed it. We shared a plate of the mixed Fajitas. They were very friendly about sharing and accommodated our request. The food and salsa was fresh and plentiful, even on a shared plate! I will go back. Were got a recommendation from a local who told us he had not been here, but everyone he heard from really liked it.
The Guac was the only item less that 100%.

Much better food. Not totally perfect but authentic and hopefully fresh made daily. I get the chili relleno plate (poblano chilies!). Large portions. Service is always fast and very friendly but I care about the FOOD not the service. Atmosphere okay and booths are comfortable.
