The food here, as well as the margaritas, was hands down excellent. Our waiter Mitch was fantastic, and the atmosphere was authentic and great for kids of all ages. Highly recommend!!

Decending down the stairs to this basement restaurant you arrive to a cozy eatery. The Mexican fare was delicious and plentiful. Staff were attentive and efficient. However, it is not handicapped accessible.

Because it has the best tequila bar in Telluride. Hands down. Over 150 different types of tequila and the best Mexican food this side of the mountain. La Cocina is overpriced and just as delicious but definitely more expensive. Best local restaurant of 2017+

Stopped here for lunch, ordered from the lunch menu on the back of the full menu. Quesadillas could be ordered with meat, came with guacamole and sour cream. Burritos were large, came with rice, beans and salad - very tasty and very filling.

The margarita was the best part of the meal. My husband and I both got two-item combination plates, which at $16 were grossly overpriced, and the food was average, at best. In fact, the tamales were dry and not very flavorful.

This is the place for happy hour in T-Ride. The margaritas are strong and not overly sweet. The chips and salsa are great and who can beat half priced apps?!

Our waitress was really good and the food was decent. Solid Mexican food. Nt going to blow your socks off but you will eat until your so full and immediately wish you ate less with their decent sized portions.
