My husband and I come here for lunch/dinner every time we go to BV, and we are never disappointed! Just visited again on Friday, 1/20. Nancy has been our server last 3 times, and she is always sweet and prompt. The food is awesome - good authentic mexican with hot chips and fresh fresh fresh guacamole. I don't even like... More

This should be the number 1 restaurant in Buena Vista. It certainly is for my family. It is different but that is what makes it such a wonderful experience, including the unique ambience. The southwestern style red sauce on a cheese enchilada is amazing. The Carne Asada steak is wonderful. We always order a number 3, 4, 6 & the... More

Great home made food in an adobe house. Cute as anything with interesting southwestern recipes such as Chicken Mole and a very interesting chile relleno casserole. It's been there for 40 years for a reason!

Casa del Sol has been a great place for Mexican food for several decades and does not disappoint. You can get out of the intense high country sun and eat in one of the quaint dining rooms or out on the shady patio with fountain and plants. I recommend the pachuga suiza dish and a margarita (very limey and fesh... More

There were 4 of us and nobody was happy with the meal, or prices. The waitress was great! It's a cute place, but 3 of us ordered the salad with our meal, which they serve their homemade dressing. No taste to the dressing. One person ordered the albondigas soup, which was light broth with 2 small meatballs, nothing else. Two... More

I was on a business trip and stopped by because they were busy the night before. I am so glad I stopped! I had the #1 combo, great if your hungry. Chicken Enchiladas were absolutely incredible, I have had nothing like them. A deviation form the norm, the Chicken Enchiladas had a white cheese and sauce that was outstanding. If... More

My family and I did not like the food there. Service and building were great. The food is different from typical Mexican food, and we did not like it.

We have eaten several times on vacation at this restaurant. It has a very nice atmosphere, including a nice courtyard eating area. Menu was good, and prices were reasonable. We enjoyed the food and atmosphere, and enjoy eating here each time we vacation in Buena Vista.

If you remember true NEW Mexican food these people still do it right. They are consistently good. Red Chile is just like so many of us from Southern Colorado/New Mexico remember it. Thanks for keeping genuine tradition alive!

I've eaten here on two trips and enjoyed it both times. A bit of a hole in the wall, but the food is decent. The pechuga (chicken breast) was quite good. Depending on the waitress you may have to explain what you want very carefully! I got more than I wanted to eat because I don't think she understood "a... More
