It was crowded but that was ok. We were finally sited and ordered. It took forever to get our food. The food was ok but nothing special. We went here because we heard it was good. Prices were fair but nothing special. Probably would not go back

There are a lot of good Mexican restaurants in the greater Denver Area but this family-owned restaurant has the best all-round Mexican food in the Denver area. Less expensive than most places and the restrooms are clean. A must-try for travelers and locals alike.

Best authentic homemade food and awesome staff. Chile rellenos and green chili to die for. Rellenos come fried (aka crispy) or soft. Some of the best of ever had. FRESH! Avoid the chain restaurants and support a true Mom & Pop family run business. Nothing fancy, but what do you want with a "real deal" great Mexican homemade food establishment.... More

I love this restaurant. This is a great family atmosphere. The green chili is very good, the portions are generous and Daniel and his family have never compromised on their quality and service. We have been coming here for years.

Great food even better prices... The breakfast is fantastic but the salsa is good enough to buy more and take home.
