Stick to the basics. They used to only have beef. No Quesadillas, no chimi, and no fish or shrimp. The green chili is great if you like the flavor. It is primarily New Mexican. The owner's grandparents are from New Mexico and Bobby took over from his Mom who was Rose! His kids are doing a lot of the running... More

I often travel between Denver and Idaho and when time allows I stop to eat. The green chili is even better than my favorite Denver Mexican restaurants. The prices are great too. The place is very small and a little off I-80 but is so well worth the stop!

We had a stuffed sopapilla smothered in green and enchiladas smothered in red sauce. Both were fantastic. I would consider this to be in the top 5 Mexican restaurants that we have visited and we eat a lot of Mexican food. A couple of things to be aware of- Chips and salsa are not included in the price of a... More

Good food. All homemade right there. Single counter and one tiny table. Outside patio. Pleasant staff.The restroom is a tiny closet in the kitchen, but it was clean enough. All the good sauces and beans and veggies and meat are cooking right there in the kettles on the stove. The flavors were good. Good food for most everyone. We sat... More

We continue to eat at Lariat every month. The food is excellent. The waitstaff is friendly. Counter seating with a few tables. Outside seating during warm weather.

I had read about Rose's on a pervious trip when I wasn't feeling like Mexican and tried it this time. It kind of looks like a hole in the wall, but inside it was very bright and charming. I was hungry after driving all day and the food was great and filling. Looks like the locals eat here, always a... More

Very grateful for previous reviews which guided us to this amazing spot while on a road trip. I had beef Chimi, a work of art topped w/sour cream and homemade, amazing guacamole. Crust was perfectly crunchy, filling outstanding & topped w/ fresh, crisp Lettuce & tomato. Husband had beef Burrito, equally as good. As a clear demonstration of the quality,... More

We stopped by for lunch on The Wesley Bell Ringers Summer concert Tour. Not only were they able to seat us all (24!), the food came out quickly and was delicious. Keep in mind, there are about 30 seats in the entire restaurant. We got there at a good time, where we all could sit. The food was hot and... More

Wanted something other than fast food on our Grand Tour around the west so we stopped in Rawlins and went in towards town and this seemed like the most interesting place. Went in and there is a counter and evidently a room beyond that but we sat at the counter. Looks like it is family run, and we felt very... More
