When we travel through Colorado we stop at Trinidad on the way to Boulder and found this wonderful Mexican restaurant. It is clean and friendly and the food is excellent. This time we tried the fajitas and found they had generous portions and were delicious. They also have great margartias and a friendly, knowledgeable staff. We will definitely visit again... More

To start off fairly-it's hard to get great Mexican food when you're out of South Texas and that was the case for this 'ol gal. The food was good but, different than what we're used of. I will say, the Beef fajitas were tasty but the total wrong cut of meat, maybe that's what's available? Yes sure. Wait staff was... More

Although we weren't quite your favorite, I'm happy you enjoyed the fajitas, Sonia. We use high quality ingredients for all of our dishes, including that one, but it's a shame it wasn't what you had in mind. If you're ever in town again, we'd love to have you back, and we'll do our best to get those refills out quickly.... More

As I love the Tequilas Franchise I must say the one in Trinidad is one of the worst places I have been to. Our food was horrible last year and so we tried it again today. I order my favorite arroz con pollo. The gave me a scoop of rice on the side and 4 little strips of chicken breast.... More

I'm really sorry to hear this -- it's a shame you didn't enjoy your meal both times you stopped in. What you're describing doesn't sound up to our standards, and I apologize. I appreciate you giving us another try, though, and wish you all the best. Take care, Edgar, General Manager More

Typical Mexican food with good, friendly service and good food in a nice and clean environment. We live here and frequent Tequilas for dates, family occasions and group gatherings. The menu has quite a bit of variety and plenty of options even for me with a gluten allergy. Reasonable prices and large portions top off the desirability of this place.

We ate here while en route through Trinidad. It was a Monday evening after 5 pm and little else for as open. But we're glad we came! Food was good, portions large, prices reasonable (as was the wine and beer), service was great. And close to our lodging g (LaQuinta). A colorful and attractive restaurant to boot!

This is one of those places with a plastic menu with so many kinds of shrimp and Mexican specialties. As such, it was friendly and courteous. The customers were interesting.

The staff is friendly. The food is good. You could take a date, or bring your family. But, the best value, is that typically a portion will be enough for two meals: to share or to take home and enjoy not cooking another time.

If you like lettuce, rice, and beans, this is the place for you. I asked for my appetizer and entree to be served without lettuce, rice, and beans, and it didn't leave much on my plate. The chicken taquito was rather bland. The beer choices are really bland.

It's a shame you weren't a fan of your chicken taquito or beer. We try to have something for everyone, but I'm sorry you were disappointed by your selection. I appreciate the feedback, though, and wish you all the best. Take care, Edgar, General Manager More

An okay Mexican restaurant, portions were large but food quality and taste was middle of the road. Prices were fair but there are most likely many others dining places nearby with better food quality
