Ate twice during our staying in Cortez. Simple tasty dishes served in sympathetic atmosphere with right portions adjusted to starved customers. A good dinner for two combination. Clean place easy accessible to main road. Stuff very positive and eager to assist upon choosing relevant meals not to ne too spicy.

I have avoided this restaurant for quite some time due to a bad experience. I was finally persuaded by a friend to give it a shot now that it's under new management. The food was just OK. It was ridiculously overpriced. Drinks were also overpriced. I won't be going back.

Our favorite food is Mexican. Our favorite place to eat it is here. In our opinion it is better here than can be found in the River Walk in San Antonio. We always order their cheese enchiladas with a side of guacamole.

Ate at the Fiesta Mexiana while staying at the Days Inn next door. The waitstaff was very attentive. The margaritas were delicious and the quesadillas tasty. The place has an attractive decor and we were pleased with the experience.

Our hotel was just next to this restaurant and we were tired after a long day of touring. Went over for take-out. They had a senior menu with each item 7.99 which came with rice and beans. I ordered the Chicken Burrito, Chili Relleno and Chicken Chimichanga. I was told that chips and salsa were included but not sour cream.... More

Being a local I love to catch happy hour here. They have the best margaritas in town, hands down. The jumbo margarita is about half price during happy hour. Warning, very strong and you can only have one and drive. Food is great. I love the crispy chile relleno.

After hiking Mesa Verde we felt like some "heavy" calories! We ate here both nights that we were staying at Hampton Inn which was close by. Food and drinks were excellent. They have a Senior Menu that we ordered from, the portions were large, don't know how big the regular menu portions would have been? Everyone very pleasant. Food tasted... More

The food is what one would expect from an establishment that purchases from the large, industrialized purveyors. The food was good & the atmosphere VERY Mexican with decorations of Halloween filling the place (very fun decorations). The staff was VERY nice, but a little flustered, as though they were short handed. Large portions served HOT. Senior menu for folks like... More

I was a late evening arrival. I was greeted promptly and in a friendly manner, seated, and provided with excellent chips and salsa. My order came quickly, and it was a ton of good food. I couldn't finish it all. I would definitely eat here again.

We started our dinner with excellent margaritas and free chips and salsa. The meals were OK, nothing special. My chili relleno was good but the shredded chimichanga filling was very dry. Our server was attentive and prompt.
