had dinner here with my son and his girlfriend - she and I split a burrito - there is no way I could have had one to myself - it was very good - restaurant is small, but there was room for everyone there

Tried the tacos and not tamales but was very happy. Husband tried the veggie tacos and I had the shreaded beef. Both of which were very good. Tasted similar to chipotle. Had the medium green salsa and it was quite mild. Would go back again. Yum.

This place is awesome. I have a burrito bowl with the special vegetarian. So tasty. Everyone, even the teenagers, loved this place.

Delicious tacos and burritos, the perfect quick eats after a day on the mountain. The staff was super friendly and had a great sense of humor. Not a lot of seating but you can get it go too!

These tamales are amazing. They get them from a family in denver. They run out of tamales quickly because people order by the dozen. Tamales are $2.50 each, $13 for half dozen, and $24 for a dozen.

We stopped to get lunch for our road trip. Good selection of burritos, tamales and tacos. Very efficient method of building your own creation as you move forward past the staff who ask which fixing you would like and making your personal meal. There is limited space to eat in and a lot of take out business. We all enjoyed... More

Better than anything you get at home. Always out first stop when we pull into town. The kids love the tacos and burritos. Service is really good and the food is great.

Pricey.... but everything is in Crested Butte. What you get for the price makes it all worth it though. Not much indoor seating. Very casual kind of place. Best dang burrito I have ever eaten.

This is the Subway of Mexican food in Crested Butte, except much, much better. It is really good and my only complaint is that the burritos are tooooo large. I love the pork Tamale's. They are great.
