They have many menu choice and all are very good. Lunches are fair priced and way too much food. Their street tacos are very good.

I love those little places that serve good food and this one did not let me down at all. Greaat food and fast service from what appeared to be a 2 person shop. It is on my list on my next trip back to the area

The menu is huge, and there is certain to be something to tickle anyone's taste buds in the many pages. The drinks on offer are equally abundant. The daily specials offer very good value for money. Most recently we had the enchilada trio special which was one steak, one ground beef and one chicken enchilada served with rice, beans, and... More

We ate way too much there as they give you a lot of food for the price! The margaritas are enormous! Fun atmosphere.

Take-out orders are often not as good as in-house, and this review has been adjusted from a 2 to a 3 to compensate. However, the food was really not very good, and our order had several mistakes. I had requested a chicken taco, but received a ground beef taco instead. My husband ordered a dish best eaten with tortillas but... More

We had a late lunch from the enormous but authentic menu. We have lived in Mexico, New Mexico, and Colorado, this place is a great fun place for couples, families, and groups.

Traveling from Colorado Springs and encountered a ton of construction on Hwy 50 and ready for food in Salida. This is the spot if you love Mexican food - special orders don't upset them. It was obvious they had a cook who knows how to prep and dish out great home made meals. Fast and the portion was so big... More

The drab exterior really hides the wonderful dining experience inside. The food was really tasty, there was a lot of it, and the Mexican flavors were fantastic. What was really nice was to have a wide variety ot choose from as well. The wait staff was very friendly and helpful, and the interior is traditionally decorated and complete with extensive... More

The decor is festive and the staff is very friendly and inviting. The portions are incredibly large. If you don't have a big appetite, you might want to order an appetizer/a la carte option or split an entrée. You also receive free chips and salsa. (The salsa is made in house, and is deliciously spicy) The quality of the food... More
