A great place for Mexican food. Lots of food for the price as well. The only disappointment was the so papillon. I like mine with a lot of cinnamon sugar and the ones we got hardly had any. Everything else was very good though!

This used to be one of my all-time favorites, but yesterday's visit might be my last. The restaurant was not very crowded and as there was a Help Wanted sign on the window, so perhaps understaffed. You must wait for a hostess to be seated....More

Food and service was average to say the least. I actually didn't find much Mexican flavor in the chicken dish I consumed, but the chips and salsa was OK.

Food is overpriced and not very good, but service is great, so I gave this one an average instead of poor.

Thursday night is fajitas night and they do give you a lot of food. If you have a smaller appetite, two people can split this dish. The fajitas were $12.50 on Thursday night. Average service and not too rowdy.

I recommend this Mexican restaurant. The service is good and reasonably timely. The salsa tastes homemade. The chips are crisp. The cheese enchiladas are overstuffed with 2 kinds of cheese. The soft tacos are flavorful.. Hint: look up at the ceiling decor.

Enjoyed this restaurant’s food to-go while in Ouray. Excellent menu options, the flavors were authentic (the salsa was delicious) & they served a nice, healthy portion. Only regret was we didn’t eat there as the environment was very appealing.

We went here for dinner and to watch a basketball game. We sat at the bar with the owner bar tending. Great guy and he made great Margheritas! The fish tacos were out of this world! We will be back!

I'm honestly shocked Buen Tiempo has such good reviews after going there for dinner. I had the chicken quesadilla, which is hard to mess up, and couldn't even finish it. And I'm pretty undiscerning when it comes to food - as an adult, I regularly...More
