“Great food and Excellent Service”
Reviewed 16 March 2014

Very good food and the service was some of the best we have ever had. From our entry into the restaurant until we left, the service was exceptionally great. We were warmly greeted and during our meal the attention to us and others around us by all the staff was warm, friendly and well above expectations. We went to Calvillo's based on the high Tripadvisor recommendations. We were in the area at a wildlife sanctuary. We chose the buffet as it had a wide variety of choices vs. the menu selection. The food we tried was very good. All selections had very good flavor. If you are in the area, stop by and you will not be disappointed. I understand the high recommendations by others on Tripadvisor. Only wish they had a higher rating than 5 based on the service we had.

“Family Mexican Place”
Reviewed 15 March 2014

An big informal restaurant which seems to be favored by the locals. Very good Mexican food and friendly service. I especially liked the $1 draft beer Monday - Thursday.

“Can you imagine TODAY getting hot homemade tortillas with a buffet!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!b”
Reviewed 7 March 2014

We were hungry when traveling this last month , on our way to Neveda. We love Mexican food but usually I don't eat it out of the house, too many disappiontments. We felt eating here is better than fastfood bloat. Calvillos is WONDERFUL! I was so surprised! We chose to eat the buffet. Everything was wonderful and such variety! To end it all we got HOT, HOMEMADE TORTILLAS ! (which was being made infront of you!) wE ALSO GOT rice MILK OR mAYBE IT IS CALLED RICE WATER. i AM FORGETTING THE REAL NAME. it WAS HABIT FORMING. i TOOK MINE IN A TO GO GLASS. i WAS SO STUFFED THAT i COULD ONLY DRINK IT AT A LATER TIME. i WANT TO MAKE A TRIP FROM dENVER just TO EAT THERE AGAIN! pRICE WAS SO SO WORTH IT, THE STAFF WAS WONDERFUL AND IT IS clean! wHAT MORE COULD YOU ASK FOR.

“good, some different flavors”
Reviewed 4 March 2014 via mobile

The service here is some of the best you will find anywhere. The food has some different flavors than what you may not be used to in a Mexican restaurant. The people who own and run the place are from a region of Mexico that has some different spices than we see in typical Tex-Mex restaurants. It's a nice change, the food is tasty, the service is superb, easily the best in town. Order the buffet, if you want something special, they are happy to prepare it for you and include it in the buffet price. One time I asked for chicken mole, not usually on the menu. They had some at home and asked that I go there to pick it up. I had enough for two meals for my family. I can't imagine they do that for everyone, but they certainly try their best to accommodate you and make you glad you came in.
