Immediately upon entering we were greeted and seated immediately. The food was excellent (I recommend the fish tacos) and the service couldn't have been better.

We had a great breakfast. The coffee was very good and the portions were great. plenty of parking. Lots of great art to look at while you have a great meal.

Good Mexican food, enough said. All of the items on the combination plate were good, chips are fresh. Salsa is very good. Casual, family oriented place. Street was under construction when we went to dinner, so access and parking were a bit of a challenge.

The food was delicious - not your typical Tex-Mex - and the staff was terrific. The flaming margaritas are just plain fun.

Friendly staff. Good service. Food average. Overpowering cumin flavor in the guacamole. Enchiladas were lukewarm.

We had eaten here several years ago and were quite pleased. This year our party of four had mixed results in the taste and quality of the food. Two of us had "la creme" entrees and they were lame with only a heavy sour cream flavor and little Mexican flavor. The others had acceptable food but nothing to get excited... More

Service was good, and the people were nice. Disappointed with my taco salad...small and had beans smeared on the bottom. My husband had tamales, and they weren't very tasty.

Finally located some good Mexican food after three months in Leadville. It's about a 40 minute drive, but worth going. We would return to try other items on the menu. We shared the combination in order to sample different meats. Each one was tasty. The presentation was good. The mojito was wonderful. Leftovers tasted great the next morning in an... More

We stopped by as we were traveling through Buena Vista. I had a chicken enchilada and a cheese enchilada. The chicken was very good! The food was good, staff was friendly, but service was a little slow. The restaurant was extremely noisy (mainly due to the customer sitting on the other side of our booth). We enjoyed the food, but... More
