Two families on vacation came in to an empty restaurant at lunch and waited an hour for food after ordering. Chips/salsa can be extra so watch out. Plenty of other good Mexican in Pagosa.

Our first visit to Chato's. Stopped in for lunch and ordered the chicken enchilada special. Very good and and good portion. Their salsa is spicy, more than most. We are in Pagosa weekly and will stop in again.

We ate here because it was close to our room, but the food was just so so. Green chile was unexceptional. Too much cheese. Just not that great tasting.

We had the asada burrito. Very good food. Friendly staff. We liked the ambience as well. The salsa was a little warm but that's just me. Loved the burrito even though I wasn't used to having rice inside and not on the side. I'd eat...More
