“Great Food, Outstanding Service”
Review of Ruben's New Mexican - MOVED

Ruben's New Mexican
Cuisines: Mexican
Description: Our diverse menu includes signature tacos with house made salsas, unique tamales, famous chile rellenos and enchiladas, seasonal favorites such as posole, gazpacho, ceviche and pumpkin flan in addition to nearly 50 more items. The margaritas are Latin-inspired from all reaches of the culture. Every item on the menu is made from scratch. Ruben's uses fresh ingredients and local products whenever possible. There is absolutely NO lard in any of the dishes prepared at the restaurant, and that includes the beans!

My husband and I came to Crested Butte to get away from the hustle and bustle of the "real" world and were told that the best Mexican in the town was Rubens. We decided to take that advice and have a nice dinner there one night. Let me tell you that we were not disappointed! Our bartender/server "Katie" was wonderful and her knowledge of the menu ensured us a delicious and filling meal. The queso is second to none (My husband is a self proclaimed cheese dip expert!) and the burritos are enormous! To complement our meal "Katie" whipped us up one of the best margaritas I have ever had. If you are looking for a great atmosphere, cheerful service, amazing food (and tons of it!), great drinks, etc then Rubens is the place for you!

We have eaten here twice this month! We were with two different groups of people and we all loved our meals! My family said they had the best chicken enchiladas they had ever tasted! Staff friendly owner always there! A must stop place!

2 for 1 house margaritas during happy hour, 4:30- 6:30 pm. Have been a few times and there may be a difference in the taste of the Margaret ( tasty, or no real taste). Went in June, marts were weak, went yesterday and they were so good, I had 2.

Regardless of the margaritas, the Mexican food is good. There are plenty of options- combo plates, black or retried beans, and the tortillamchips are delicious. Service is also very good. And the staff very friendly. My friends and I like our Mexican food a little spicier, but overall was tasty.

The atmosphere is charming and is frequented by the locals, riding bikes or walking. I thoroughly enjoy crested butte south, the people are neihborly and not pretentious.

This was convenient for us since we were renting a house in South CB. If you are in town, it is about 7 miles south on the way to Gunnison. We sat in a booth with perfectly vertical backs - rather uncomfortable sitting so go with a table and chairs. Very good margarita to start. The posole was good and spicy. The enchiladas were a different style from southern NM but they tasted good. The service was excellent.

There are 3 parts to Crested Butte - Mt. Crested Butte (the ski area), Historic CB (downtown main street), and CB South. Ruben's is located in CB South, about ten miles South of downtown. While this is a bit of a pain if you live or are staying in the two other areas, the drive is well worth it. Allen (the owner) is always there to make sure everything is going well - he has a full bar, decent sized menu of Mexican food, and also has steaks, burgers, and a kid's menu. It is a small restaurant in an old log cabin type building with an outside deck. Very casual, very friendly, and reasonably priced - definitely give Reuben's a shot.
