This restaurant is so great we come back every time we’re near Glenwood Springs! We enjoyed delicious guacamole, enchiladas and a margarita. Good service and nice outdoor seating.

We love to eat here. The service is always a little low and maybe a bit inattentive but the food is outstanding. The restaurant is always clean and the people friendly. I believe it is under new ownership now. It is called 2 Corona's.

This restaurant offers probably the best Mexican food in the County. It's prepared carefully with authentic Oaxacan recipes and ingredients. Prices are reasonable and their outdoor seating is pleasant. Samuel Garcia, "Él Patron" takes great pride in the product, and mixes a worthy Margarita.

I visited a couple of times when they first opened. The atmosphere is beautiful but the food was not quite there yet. I decided to give it another shot. I was passing through town and was hungry. Even though they were closing they still seated...More
