Just go there!!!! Delicious food, hardy portions, and great drink selection. My favorite sauce was the cream sauce, followed by the mole sauce.

You can count on a good meal here every time. It is a bit expensive for Mexican food, but you get a lot of it (we always take a go box) and the service is great.

We come from largely hispanic town and have the great pleasure of eating some wonderful Mexican food. That being said our experience here was definitely disappointing. Speaking directly to the food it was eatable at best. Fajitas consisted of pre cooked chicken and raw oily veggies. Tortillas were store bought not made. Carne asada burrito was an huge disappointment. Meat from a steam table not cooked to order. Rice and beans were so heavily salted they overwhelmed the meal flavor. Prices were moderate to high but far to expensive for the quality. Service was acceptable however we are still waiting for the extra salsa we asked for for our chips. All in all Save ur money and time. Eat somewhere else.

We ate here twice on our 3 day weekend! After driving through the monument, we were starving! Looked around the area and found a lot of people parked outside...a good indication . We had the chicken asado, pork enchiladas, quesadilla, triple enchiladas and a Bohemia beer. ALL fantastic!! I highly recommend eating here. It is also close to Rim Rock Adventures, and downtown Fruita, where there are cute shops and two bike shops, as well.

Very typical ambiance for semi-chain Mexican restaurants. Full of colorful patterns in various designs. We did enjoy the service, however, it appeared to be rushed. All servers were most friendly. The selection from the menu was typical and but varied for this type of restaurant. Portion size was quite ample, enough so that I was able to enjoy my leftovers for another meal. Quality I thought was very good. Prices were quite reasonable. My only downside was their selection of beers...for I could use a selection of American Craft beers.
