“Best part of our trip!”
Reviewed 21 March 2014

We are from Denver and took a long weekend trip to Albuquerque, Santa Fe, and the Great Sand Dunes. We've eaten Mexican food every day of our trip and this was the best food and experience by far!

The staff was really friendly, the owner thanked us for visiting his restaurant, and the food was soooo good! The prices are reasonable and they make you feel at home. We loved it here and will be back again!

“Very friendly service.”
Reviewed 20 March 2014

My wife and I went to Calvillo's based on the reviews we read and a recommendation from our hotel in Alamaosa. We were impressed with how friendly and inviting the wait staff were and the selection of food offered on their buffet. I'm not a Mexican food aficionado so I can't compare it with other Mexican food, but their fruit, salads and alternate foods was fresh and tasty.

“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.
