Absolutely the best on the south end of Colorado Springs. Tasty food, great service, and amazing Margs. (Try the Cadillac!) All this, and reasonably priced.

I had the beef taco. It was not that great. The meat was ok, but just not great. reminded me of a sloppy joe. Chips were good, but the salsa was hot, no mild. The cheese for the chips was seemed like it came out of a can. So not that impressed.

From the host to the waitress and the busboy we received excellent service. Each of the three paid attention to our 8-year old daughter and made her stay special to the point of she always wants to go back. The busboy did some simple magic where he hid the dishes and was 'trying to find them' in a clownish way.... More

The margaritas were excellent, the salsa with the chips they bring out had good flavor and just the right amount of heat. We had four people in our party, we all ordered different food, and everyone was happy. The staff were attentive and nice. I would definitely go back, if I'm in the area again.

Came for early dinner on Friday night. Pancho kept us in stitches with his mixed Spanish lesson for us. We liked the big margaritas and our dinners of chili relleno, enchiladas with good green chili sauce, and smothered burritos. Cheese dip was plain however. Chips and salsa were good. Not the best, but we'd come again.

My daughter and I went to dinner here tonight. I had just a simple 2 cheese enchiladas plate that came with rice and some refried beans. I took one bite and thought it didn't taste right. But thought maybe it was me that was "off". It wasn't!!! This was the worst Mexican meal I have ever had! The rice was... More

I love the shredded beef tacos and their chile rellenos. The rellenos have a great fluffy batter and are made with poblano peppers . The margaritas are good but the real treat is the staff. They are always welcoming give great service and love to joke around. I've never left unsatisfied with any aspect of my meal.

Average Mexican Restaurant...nothing special and nothing to go out of the way for. Had the enchilada plate and it was just bland.

Nice place and very good authentic Mexican food! Atmosphere was authentic and was in a sub par neighborhood but don't let that detour you away from this little gem in Colorado Springs. It's apparently family run and very cared for. We received a warm welcoming along with an immediate warm welcoming face from the owner. They have a unique way... More

Our dinner did not get off to a good start because a person was seeking donations for some charitble organization Have read a lot about this place and was looking forward to our meal. The margaritas were good, not real strong which is the way I like it. I had the steak tacos and they were pretty good. Would like... More
