The atmosphere is fun and colorful. Plenty of space. Food is typical Tex/Mex. It’s good but not memorable. It’s in a great location right in the heart of downtown Rifle. For more upscale decor, a nicer bar and way better Mexican food go to Tequila’s...More

You can always count on a good meal at Chamo's. Their chile rellanos are interesting, red instead of green sauce. But tasty.

The salsa served with chips is thick and delicious. Fresh made. Everything we had was piping hot and good. The night we were there service was slow. There was only one waitress working the room. She was very friendly but overloaded. Portion sizes were quite...More

Came here after reading other reviews on our way through Rifle. Really glad we did! Great tamales with a twist. Can’t wait to stop on our way home and try the carnitas and rellanos which were recommended.

Not a huge bunch of choices in Rifle, but this is a cut above. And, if you get off of I-70 it's less than five minutes from the interstate - right on the south end of Rifle. This is, as I said, a cut above...More

If you are looking for great food at a great price this is it. Not your typical Mexican fare,but Spanish fusion. Great for families or a romantic dinner. On a budget... don’t miss Taco Tuesday .99 tacos

With fresh produce and the most amazing white cheese, this is undoubtedly the best quesadilla ever. The owner is Nicaraguan, so there's a different flavor and atmosphere than your typical Mexican restaurant, but homemade chips and yummy salsa are still provided. This is a must-go...More

The restaurant certainly has good tortillas with the plates it serves but I don't remember seeing tortillas for sale. Very nice people so I expect you could buy tortillas. One thing I know is the food is excellent and I live... More
