Snagged the last table on a busy night - they had the Olympics on at the bar and skiers made it cramped in there but the staff gave prompt, attentive and friendly service and the food was tasty! We split the Dos Dynamite Diablos tacos...More

We met friends to dine here during spring break.I have never been to a restaurant that charged .50 for each tortilla. The waitress was loud and rude.The food was mediocre but not too expensive.It was too small and uncomfortable. We won't return to this restaurant.

Best barbacoa tacos I’ve had. Place is tiny. Expect a wait... but it’s worth it. In Pagosa? Try this place.

My wife loved the fish tacos a lot. My son said his bacon cheeseburger might be the best he’s ever had. My Americano tacos sucked. No flavor at all. I should have gone with the pizza or burger. The queso is very jalapeno-ish. It’s a...More

Yes they do. While were there, some did have a dog with them. Once you are on the patio, you can exit and enter from the patio.

Yes, you can do any of the tacos as a Baja salad or the vegetarian tacos can come without the cheese too. We also offer a Portabello sandwich.
