We tried this while in Estes and they have decent Mexican food. We have had better and we have had worse. For Estes this may be one of the better choices for Mexican. The Chalupa is very large but lacked any real flavor.

As a local, it is extremely difficult to find a restaurant in Estes Park that is edible as well as consistent. Most restaurants are hit and miss on whether you can even choke down the food around here. Thankfully, if we are in the mood for Mexican food we always know what to expect when we go here. They have excellent service and even though their food isn't spectacular, it's good and always the same time and time again. It is our number 1 choice in town.

I went here for lunch on my way to the mountains. It was ok but again I'm biased. The salsa was very good the ground beef was spicy but was lacking salt.

Not the best Mexican I've had. This restaurant was recomended by a local. Save your money and go some other place

The chips and salsa were great. We ordered fish tacos & fajitas and shared both. The fish was a bit old. The fajitas were sloppy, too wet. The guacamole was creamy, I like it more chunky. They had a busy Friday nite crowd and it was locals. I'd try it again based on other recommendations. Service was good and it was not on Main Street (Elkhorn) so that was a bonus.
