From start to finish, this place was amazing!! A hidden gem in the Willits area, El Korita is authentic from the first step in the doors. We felt that we made the right decision to have dinner there when they brought out the chips & salsa (homemade). And, the drinks...priced just right, sized just right and so good to the very last drop - my suggestion, try the skinny margarita (you'll thank me!) The kids menu is perfect for the picky eater, and the adult menu - awesome - plenty of food that is cooked perfectly and portioned for the hungry guest. Kudos to the chef's! The wait staff and bartenders are great too - very attentive. We will be back!

There are much better Mexican restaurants in the valley. The food here, including the chips, salsa and guac, is so salty that hours later I'm still drinking huge glasses of water to recover - and I'm a savory, spicy, salt lover! The house Margaritas had an 'off' flavor. We were told it was because they were the cheapest so we shouldn't expect the best! We let the server know the alcohol wasn't the problem, it was the mix or base ingredients - the drink tasted as if the lime mix had started to turn or spoil. So, not wanting to ruin the celebration we were there for, we ordered their premium version but have to say they were not fantastic either - but at least they didn't taste spoiled. When the bill came were were still charged for the original two drinks we never consumed, the ones we just tasted. We truly are not picky and rarely send anything back. Such sad service. My career is in the food and hospitality business so I understand what service is like. This is the first time I've never left a tip. We live locally and will never go back. What a shame. They used to be a decent restaurant. It's a good thing we still have much, much better Mexican food establishments available to us than this place.

Suggested by friends who live in the area, El Korita is an authentic Mexican restaurant, family-owned and friendly. The food was fresh and good; the service friendly and the margarita's ample. Located between Glenwood Springs and Aspen, it is a good, affordable choice.

Amazing food every time!! Go out on a limb and order the Seafood Mocahete it is a big boiling dish of amazingly tasty soup. Their Margaritas pack a punch so be careful if you are driving, and be sure to plan to wait, this place is so tasty that there is almost always a wait, but it is ALWAYS worth it!!

Really great food. Super authentic. Really nice people. Love being outside in Colorado so the patio was appreciated. My dog liked it too.
