A great place for an afternoon snack (meal) of nachos and margaritas - Nachos with the roast beef are delicious and will feed two easily and leave both feeling quite satisfied. A bargain

Have eaten here several times over 2 trips and will continue to do so. Seems overall like a pretty good place. Food is good, drinks strong enough and prices reasonable overall as well.

The atmosphere is nice in Buen Tiempo and the food was above OK, but not spectacular. Good for Ouray and the only Mexican restaurant in town. Stayed in Ouray 4 months, didn't go back after the first time.
