Teocalli has some of the best tamales I've ever had. Their other offerings are delicious too, but the tamales are the best. It's a simple restaurant but has lots of character (like a lot of places in CB). It is located in a cute house...More

I've been to this place the past two winters and just went again this summer. There's a lot of choices for burritos including a range of salsas. The food tastes fresh, you can have it exactly how you want it, and the flavors are great....More

Yum! Great tacos and burritos! Great guacamole! A great place to get as little or as much as you want to eat! Very casual and small interior but tables turn over fairly quickly. We ate there several rimes during our week there!

My mom has lived in CB for over 40 years and this is her favorite place for lunch. We stop in every time I come to visit. Everything is just delicious. Not to be missed!

Yeah there is a line but it's a good thing. Gives you enough time to figure out which awesome tacos to get. Dudes behind the counter are super friendly and helpful too.

Went from Gunnison to Crested Butte looking for a place to eat dinner. Walked up and down the street gazing at posted menus. Raining. Came across Teocalli Tamale with lots of bicycles parked outside. Hmm locals eat here. Order at counter. Had the Tamale plate,...More

OK selection, but slightly limited. Fresh taste and clean atmosphere makes for a great late lunch spot.
