Wonderful and very friendly service. They have a buffet as well as an extensive menu. We arrived late afternoon and opted to order from the menu. The food was great.

We were in alamosa for 36 hours and went to calvillos twice! Verde salsa is freshly made (it had froth on it. So damn good) and buffet is awesome. Kids loved it, we were happy campers.

Not sure I can add much, but my understanding is the buffet is an all-day feature so it should be good for lunch. I think the other reviewers have provided an pretty good estimate of the price.
