This is definitely the best Mexican in Aspen. It has "coastal" Mexican cuisine with many seafood dishes in addition to meat.

Food was amazing, too! Try the chile relleno especial. They don't have a kids menu, but the happy hour mini tacos were sufficient and our waitress had the kitchen make a smaller quesadilla for our other child. Be careful when drinking at this elevation, one margarita (only $5 at happy hour) and I was done!

Sat outside and enjoyed the beautiful weather, shrimp ceviche and margaritas. The shrimp ceviche tasted just like it does when traveling in Mexico so I was pleasantly surprised. We also had a cheese dip that was just ok, but the shrimp ceviche was so amazing!

Cadillac margarita, pricey for a small marg, but worth the splurge. If you're limited on meals in Aspen, go elsewhere. If you're here for a few days then you'll want to come by to satisfy your craving for some Mexican food. Can recommend the fish tacos and enchiladas dinner. Nothing special about the nachos and cheese quesadillas. Great service.

This place was adorable! Cute ambiance, yummy, yummy food. We ate waaay too much and wanted to eat more. The queso was delicious, and the fajitas were yum. The waitress was super friendly, and the bus-woman was also very friendly. Great little place!
