I do love Mexican food, but this place serves watered down, bland too much Americanized Mexican food, which is not worth the stop. One can't even call it Mexican food. Yes, it looks like Mexican food, but it certainly doesn't taste like it. Looking for good Mexican food? Go elsewhere. Taco Bell's is better.

Traveling thru Canon City, we decided to stop for lunch. After looking up a couple places we passed by, we decided on Old Mission. Our server was very friendly, establishment was small but clean and quiet. We each had a burrito smothered in mild green sauce. I'm a spice wimp, and could've chosen the medium green chile sauce. I highly... More

Delicious food, friendly service, and great place for families! Will definitely stop in again on our next trip to Canon City to visit family (the ones who recommended Old Mission since it's their favorite restaurant in CC!). The Green Chili with Taco Salad was recommended, and it was DELICIOUS! Being from Texas, I KNOW Mexican (and Tex-Mex) food, and the... More

If you are in the mood for Mexican food stop here! Great food and reasonable prices. The perfect place after a trip through the Royal Gorge. Friendly and efficient staff.

We stopped in because there were quite a number of cars in the parking lot. And it was a good choice! I had the mission burrito, and it was so good that we went back 2 days later. My husband had the chicken tacos and those were tasty. The price was right and the service was very good.

This place rated average and it was. They have an extensive menu, but the service was lackluster and the place is not very inviting. The food was okay, but nothing I'd come back for again and again.

Had evening meal here, enchilada and tamale dinner, and it was good. Not greasy, good sides, and spiced just right. But, not the best mexican ever, just good. Service was rushed but competent.

We have been in the area a month and have had meals or bar food at least 15 times. All of the servers are excellent & work hard to see that we have everything we need. The margaritas are exquisite!! Open 7 days. Old Mission was always consistent. We have to leave town but won't hesitate to stop here again... More

We stopped off for a late lunch and had a memorable meal. Everyone got what they liked and shared a taste. We had great service and the friendly staff made sure we had all the side salsa, guac & chips. It was a great afternoon in Canon City!!
