Ordered a beef chimichanga and the seafood mojete (a seafood gumbo served in a black stone bowl). Portions were huge and the food was excellent. Arrived during happy hour and got sizable, well-made margaritas for under $5 each.

Love the atmosphere, very festive! Huge selection of meals from simple tacos to full lobster selections. Loved the Ceviche and shrimp tacos, the beef burrito were very good too. The Margaritas were plentiful, loved it.

This is the place we meet friends from up and down the valley for Mexican. It is worth the drive from Aspen every time we really crave authentic Mexican. They have a extensive menu of classic items, but I order the seafood molcajetes so often...More
