We love Mexican food and decided to try out a new place. We order to go. Staff was friendly. The food came quickly. Everyone liked the food, could be our new favorite Mexican place in Nashua.

I started going to Colima when they were a hole in the wall. When their now manager was just a waiter. And they were fabulous. But now that they moved they have moved to the big leagues there customer service is some of the best I've seen their bar is by far the most diverse in Nashua. And to know... More

I love the homemade tortilla chips. I have not had anything I didn't like here including the margaritas... also on Wednesday nights they have $1 tacos and $5 margaritas!

Very nice atmosphere. Wait staff was very friendly, responsive and knowledgeable. We happened to go there on a Wednesday which is $5.00 Margarita day. NOT YOUR AVERAGE MARGARITA. One of the best cocktails I've had in years. Their web page describes the "mole" as a labor intensive sauce and it is delightful. Very different and delicious. Thanks to the Chef... More

Been three times, between my family and I, 7 different dishes, all excellent. I personally have had the chicken in "mole" sauce twice. Never have had anything like it, very nice flavor (do not order if allergic to peanuts). Got the pitcher of margaritas last visit with family. very good, and quite fair price ($22), make sure to say "house"... More

Homemade salsa is delicious! Everything tastes so fresh and authentic! Try the churros for dessert! Simply the best Mexican food in the area!!!

I've been before and found service lacking and hoped that was a one-time occurrence. Unfortunately, it was not. The draught beer selection is quite limited. Salsa and chips are AWESOME! The meal was good , not great.

I have eaten at El Colima several times and it is without a doubt the best Mexican Restaurant in Nashua. It is worth a trip for the perfectly seasoned guacamole alone. Everything we have ordered has been delicious. The only thing that keeps this from being a five star review is the lackluster, watered down margaritas. Order a Mexican beer... More
