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.

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

My husband and I enjoyed Chamo's in Rifle. My fajitas were tasty and my husband enjoyed his fish tacos. The salsa served with the requisite chips was quite good, too. We were there on a Friday around 6 p.m. in late September and it wasn't...More

This restaurant has lunch specials until 3 that are less expensive than the dinner menu. Our waitperson was not very attentive. The chile relleno was covered in too much breading. My husband's order was not correct. The salsa, however, was wonderful! The margaritas were way,...More
