The food was really good and the service was great. A little pricey for Mexican food but I'd recommend this place to people who don't mind paying more.

They have the best food in town. I love their green chili, enchiladas and carne asada. Actually, I have never had a bad meal. And the service is excellent.

Good place for either a few beers or magaritas with good food. The environment is nice and the staff is friendly.

It was close to our hotel (Holiday inn) and we were very hungry. Food was sub-par, not nearly as good as average restaurants. Margarita was good. Service good. But a hair in the food killed it for us.

I have lived in Texas for more than 27 years and coming to Colorado for 40 years and always trying to find real Mexican food. Well this is the place! Absolutely delicious. Staff is great and food is the best I've had in Colorado!!!! A...More

This Mexican restaurant was great - really good food at a very reasonable price! Parking could have been better, but eh...

I ordered a combo plate with a shredded beef chimichanga and a bean tostada. All items were tasteless. Not even green chili on the chimichanga. Based on the menu, it seems smothering items in green chili is not what they do here.

I visit here several times per year, mostly for late night dinners. I like the chicken chipotle and they have good mexi desserts. Huge margaritas too!
