I was looking for some fish tacos. They knocked it out of the park. Service was adequate and helpful, not overbearing. They had kids meals for my daughter and the chips and salsa was top notch, just the right heat and flavor. I usually skip...More

Great meal, reasonably priced. Great service. Nice setting off of Manitou Blvd traffic and construction. Ate outdoors near a small waterfall. Not typical Tex Mex offerings.

Travel up the hill out of the touristy downtown to find this hidden gem. Great service. Delicious authentic Mexican fare, especially the sauces. They met our low carb special requests perfectly.

Visited for lunch on a Saturday. It wasn't crowded, we had reservations but could have walked in (after tourist season). Service was good and the food was excellent. I had a combination plate, my wife had an enchilada with tomatillo alfredo sauce was wonderful

The food here is a little different than most Mexican restaurants. What a wonderful surprise! They have 3 sauces to choose from to top off your enchiladas or smothered burritos. A red mole, pork green chili and a mild tomatillo alfredo. Husband ordered beef burrito...More

Found this place last year on vacation and returned again this year. Food is outstanding and the service was great. One waitress juggled six or seven groups of customers and did a fantasiic job. Looking forward to our return visit in the Spring 2018.

Our large group had a fun and lively dinner here. The food was delicious, the margaritas were not overly sweet, and our server was terrific. The evening added a lot to our family weekend.

Our group of four found the atmosphere and food here to be excellent. We were able to eat on the outdoor deck which was nice. The chiles rellenos, smothered pulled pork burrito and their portobello, spinach and cheese enchiladas were all excellent. The guacamole dip...More

My wife and I ate here after driving in from Arizona. It was a few minutes from our hotel. We chose this place because we thought it was mexican food. It's more southwestern food with some mexican influence. The food was tasty, although the portions...More
