“good food reasonable prices”
Reviewed 25 June 2012

Stopped in, going from Denver to Estes Park. The food was good, but not exceptional, at reasonable prices.

“Is this fish”
Reviewed 10 June 2012

Waitress had no knowledge of food or drink menu, had to convince her that my meal came with rice finally she stopped arguing with me looked. Fish tacos covered in mint, looked like small marbles on some kind of tortilla, by far one of the worst meals I have ever eaten, my brother had to ask what the difference was between the enchiladas on the lunch menu and dinner menu she said the lunch one has no rice and beans, he pointed out to her they are the same the difference is $2 for the dinner, why?

“is there supposed to be fish on this?”
Reviewed 10 June 2012

Our first clue should've been the two cars in the lot at 7:30pm on a Saturday night.... Our waitress though nice had NO clue about the menu from non alcoholic drinks to what came with what dishes... I got fish tacos and literally I saw NO fish? It was three tiny cubes of something that in no way resembled or tasted like fish and it was apparently covered in mint... no garnish, just a bare shell with a slice of avocado ( which was the highlight), red cabbage and the mysterious cubed chunks of mint??
It was wrong from A to Z... wait M was good, my margarita was palatable ...... I won't be surprised if this place is out of business by end of summer.

“Getting Their Act Together (Finally)”
Reviewed 4 May 2012

I had eaten here once or twice shortly after the reopening. Not so great. We tried again with some friends more recently and things seem to be on an upswing. In 3 visits over about a 4 week period (the kids liked eating there), we had pretty good food each time.

It's good to see that things are improving.

It's mostly homey fare. The queso and salsa are very good. You should consider asking them to back off the agave nectar for coin style margaritas - the default drink comes out too sweet for most peoples' tastes (ordered light on agave, they are good).

Worth a try, if you're after a simple Mexican plate, though it still isn't the best game in town (all food types considered).
