My husband and I, were passing by Buena Vista, decided to stop for dinner and so happy we found this little gem of a place! First I would like to say how clean the restaurant itself was, the bathrooms, our table was shiny (of course didn't check all the tables), condiments clean, menus clean..First impression great! The food we ordered... More

Decent Mexican food restaurant. The salsa was homemade and very good. The guacamole was also very good. I had a taco and tamale lunch plate. The tamale needed more filling and the taco shells looked and tasted like Ortega or similar brand store bought. I would have preferred homemade. We didn't try any drinks.

Food was good, not great nor the best Mexican we've eaten. We met out of town family so had a large crowd. The restaurant was expecting us so had large space for the ten of us set up. I asked about the wine and was appreciative that the waitress said it wasn't very good. Everyone liked the beer selection and... More

We visit Buena Vista a couple times a year to stay at Mt. Princeton hot springs. We have our favorite restaurants we always go back to...Evergreen Cafe and Quincy's. We noticed this new restaurant this time and the parking lot was full, always a good sign. We wanted to watch the Broncos game during lunch so we decided to give... More

We ate the other day while visiting and Mexican food sounded good. Our waiter was a nice young guy and he seated us and took our drink order. We were there with some friends and we all ordered our food. Food came out quickly, but they forgot to put in my wife's order because I believe he wrote it down... More

Wow! I could drink the salsa. It was so fresh and flavorful! Truly the best chips and salsa I have ever eaten! My chicken enchilada was perfectly seasoned and had the ideal amount of spice. The shredded beef taco was wonderful also. I wish I were local.

The food here is excellent! I had a cheese enchi, and a shredded beef sope. I have a hard time finding a good red sauce for my enchis. The sope had an excellent pocket of corn meal. This place got it right! My hubby had shreded beef tacos, and he said they were awesome! The service was slow, because it... More

We were passing through Buena Vista and getting hungry so stopped in at Los Girasoles. (Sunflowers). We had the Girasoles Trio for 2. It had a variety of entree items on this platter. It was really delicious. We really enjoyed the fresh salsa with chips. Service was very quick, too. Thanks!!
