The bartender forgot to ring in our order so we were sitting there for 40 min. After she apologized and rang it in, the manager even came to the table to try to offer a good service or to show that they cared that we were just sitting waiting for our order that wasnt put it in the computer. The... More

Prices not bad for a ski town, Our food was OK but not amazing, but honestly I think we ordered wrong. They had a big Seafood menu, and we didn't order fish, also I saw a lot of tables ordering Mocajete, which looked good but we did not try that either. It is a lot of food, and we weren't... More

Came in with a few friends on a Monday night and our server, Ramon, could not have been ruder. Ask for anything..."Sure." Ask for our check to be split..."can you just write down what you want to pay for." Saw him maybe 3 times through our hour and a half long meal. I'm a server myself and can forgive a... More

This place is POPULAR! The staff does a good job of keeping things moving but don't come during peak times if you are in a hurry. The food was excellent and menu extensive. The variety of seafood offered is not typical of many Mexican restaurants. The chips and salsa are house made and quite tasty. I had the seafood Molcajete... More

We stopped here on the way back from a day trip to Aspen/Snowmass area. It was a Monday night and there was still a wait - first sign (to me) that a place is good. Only waited for about 5min to get a table. Servers were sociable and friendly and the chips and salsa were fresh and had just the... More

I loved this placed! The food was excellent. My favorite was the Tampiquena. Food was hot, on time, and good. Service is great!

This was the best place we ate the whole time we spent in Colorado. I had the Hot Pineapple, quite possibly the best dish I've had this year, half a pineapple filled with shrimp, scallops, mussels, octopus, fish, cream sauce, and of course pineapple. My husband had the open face chimichanga which he loved, but not as adventurous as some... More

We have been going to El Korita for years. Our last two visits were very disappointing especially the most recent one. Service was slow, two of the entrees served were wrong, the food was luke warm and the waiter never came back to check after he's served the food. This was on a slow night. At least the margaritas were... More

I used to want to eat here every day - fish tacos or die! Not so much anymore. Something is lacking.
