Took my family a party of 9 their all left quite satisfied with they had for dinner. Wide array of choices to be had-even kids. The salsa bar is the best I've seen and/ or tasted. Large portions and reasonably priced. Friendly, fast and efficient...More

I just don't understand why people really like this place. I agree that the location is convenient, but other than that...it just doesn't really have much to offer. I freely admit that I have pretty high standards when it comes to Mexican or Tex-Mex food----after...More

First of al,l the food is expensive for the average Tex-Mex fare served here. There was a very limited selection of pork dishes offered when I was there. I just look at their online menu and it shows you can get carnitas in burritos, tacos,...More

Having been gone from Fort Collins for 10 years, we have missed this restaurant. This was our first time at the new location, and we were impressed with the changes. More choices and very good food. And the margaritas are still the best.

This is my new favorite Mexican restaurant in Fort Collins - or anywhere for that matter! I've been going to various Mex restaurants in FTC for over 20 years and I tried Los Tarascos just to go someplace different. It is FANTASTIC!!! 9 salsas from...More

It's a couple blocks south of the downtown knot of pedestrian traffic and just north of the suburban sprawl—perfect spot for an oasis of flavor and value in a town overloaded with pretenders and wallet drainers. The site-made corn tortillas are all over the menu,...More

Chose this place based on TA reviews on our way back through Old Town. Rarely are we disappointed based on reviews, but, honestly, this place is definitely not worthy of it's "accolades". My family and I lived in south TX for almost 10 years and...More
