“Do not waste your time or money here”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 March 2014

Food: sub-par food that could be had from a king soopers frozen food section
Service: do you enjoy being accosted verbally with no filter in front of other patrons? This is your place. Awful service is the only words needed.
Value: try taco bell and you will have better food and service at 1/10 of the cost.

Bottom line: the fact that this place creates their own reviews to boost ratings on multiple review sites is a direct reflection on what you can expect here. Fish tacos good? Seriously?! Nothing better than seafood in a desolate mountain town. ... lies. Fish tacos = microwave dinners on sale at Wal-Mart.

“Amazing fish tacos”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 December 2013 via mobile

They are ordered a la carte and I get them basically every time I go in. Crispy, spicy and delicious. I'm also a fan if their tortas. Service is occasionally slow and you take you check to the counter to pay. Despite what the sign says, they will almost always split the check if you want them to.

“Don't go here”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 September 2013 via mobile

The food was mediocre. The service was bad. We were the only ones there at noon. Should have left when we saw that. When we needed something I got up to find the waiter and after 5 min he showed up. Don't know where he had been. But he was the only one there except for the 3 of us and after about 5 min of looking for him, he walked back in from the front door. ????

“Authentic and yummy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 September 2013

Fish tacos are awesome. Service is usually one of the fastest places in town. Chicken enchiladas are great, even the piled high nachos are tasty, all gulped down with Horchata! This is a true family - run business, and they are an asset to little ole' Leadville! The oysters I have heard are great!

“Comfort Tex Mex”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2013

Basic Tex Mex, nothing fantastic, nothing bad. Expect decent comfort food, service friendly and a little slow, reasonable prices.
