We stopped in for dinner and cocktails. I looked around at the other diners and their margaritas and decided to get one. They have a large selection of margaritas, including an Italian margarita. I ordered a very large one, thinking that is what I saw on all the other tables. Boy was I wrong! They brought me one the size... More

After strolling the streets of this friendly little tourist town, we felt stopping at The Loop for lunch was the appropriate thing to do and we were not disappointed. Tortilla chips and a very zingy salsa arrived promptly after which we ordered the Chili Verde Taco Salad, an interesting mix of goodies in a large tortilla shell, smothered in pork... More

Went to dinner with some women I met on retreat and ordered the fish fajita! It was DELICIOUS! I wanted to go back the next evening but ran out of time! I would definitely recommend this restaurant to friends and family. I didn't have a drink but I hear that they are amazing too!

While visiting during Spring Break 2017. My son and I walked the streets shopping and looking for a great place for lunch. We talked to the locals and they recommended this place. We stopped in and we could not have asked for anything better. The food is fantastic. The salsa is on the spicy side but that is easily managed... More

I would not return. It seemed somewhat dirty and the quality of the food was average. Service however was friendly and fast.

I am from Texas originally, so I have HIGH standards when it comes to MX Food... The Loop is essentially one of the best choices in Colorado Springs/Manitou. The environment is great, the Margaritas are big and the food is good. A great family spot, and always a good place for date night. Come midweek to avoid the touristas!

My husband and I had lunch at The Loop on our first day in Manitou Springs. We love Mexican food so were super excited to find this restaurant. We both ordered beef enchiladas. Our food was delivered in under 5 minutes. Normally that would be a good thing, but it was barely warm. We ate it anyway as we're not... More

There are so many choices but I had the sampler and every bite was so very good. Very fresh. Didn't have to wait for a table and our server Lauren was very attentive always checking on us. Their Margarita choices were great too. Right in the downtown district so walking distance from anywhere. Glad we made the choice to have... More
