Service was great, atmosphere cozy with amazing view of mountains and food very authentic. Few of our favorites were the chicken chimichanga, stuffed sopapillia with pork and green chili sauce and fish tacos.

“Family owned Mexican restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2014

We love this place north of the city, always feel so welcomed there, and the food is always freshly made on site and great tasting. I do not like really hot Mexican food, so they accommodate with three different choices of green chili or a white sauce. The staff is all very friendly and often times the owner is walking around greeting people! We go there often!

“Delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 June 2014

We were on vacation in June and looking for the best Mexican food in Colorado Springs. We found it. All four of our dinners were exceptional - great taste - fresh food - good portions. On top of everything else we appreciate that they are not open on Sundays to let their staff have that day to themselves.
