Great food. Try the crispy chicken tacos. Burritos are huge and very good. Hot sauce bar with multiple tasty choices. Best bang for your buck in Vail. People watching is very entertaining. Everything from millionaire regulars to ski bums spending their last dollar.

Wow. This place has amazing chicken tacos and chips and salsa and super cheap. Wish we had discovered this earlier on our trip. Located in transportation center in Vail Village.

This place is soooo good! I'm originally from Arizona and I'm always looking for authentic Mexican food - this place has it. It has a Salsa bar too. Delicious tacos and enchiladas. Check it out! You will be glad you did.

I don't recall any children's menu, it is a small restaurant. Give them a call, there is probably something to suit.
