Reviewed 23 July 2014

Great specials. Haven't found a better place for Mexican food in Canon City. Better places in Colorado Springs or Pueblo.

“Birthday dinner”
Reviewed 22 July 2014 via mobile

We always love coming to this place. The food is always really good and their quick service is fantastic. If you drink this place has great margaritas any almost any flavor. Kids menu is great for picky eaters. Open 7 days a week, something for everyone.

“good food, less than wonderful service”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

The food was fine, the employees seemed like they would rather be anywhere else than where they were. Zero personality from them.

“Salsa”
Reviewed 13 July 2014

Great salsa! Waiter was not the greatest, he never really checked on us and we needed stuff. We also had 7 in our group and only 2 small bowls of salsa. They did bring more to us after we asked. Food was okay

Reviewed 12 July 2014

Good mexican food in traditional atmosphere. Faves are the appetizer combo as a meal and the El Caporal enchilada.
