The margaritas are strong and delicious. Our waitress was Tobi Lynn, she was very attentive and mad sure our chips and salsa never... More

My wife and I ate at the Old Mission Restaurant today for the first time. The food was delicious and seasoned perfectly. They have great tamales, chili rellenos, enchiladas, etc. They all whether you like your food mild, medium, or hot.

After trying all the Mexican places in town, this is my favorite. I loved the atmosphere, the service and best of all,the food. Altho tacos are pretty simple food, I can never find one that I like away from home, until now, good job!

This place was recommended by a local and was even better than the recommendation! Green chili was perfect, as was the bean and carnitas burrito, beans, rice, enchiladas, tacos, and the tostada!!! They also have a healthy side dish with grilled squash, onions, and melted cheese, which was delicious! Our server was the best we've seen in a while among... More

The Mexican food is fantastic. They have the best chili rellanoe's you ever ate. The chili comes in green and red. The medium green is best for me wirh some heat but not enough to burn you mouth up. All there food is excellent.

This was my go to place for the most delicious one of a kind chili rellenos! Not anymore :( they apparently changed them from homemade amazing chili rellenos to more of a glorified cheddar pepper from Sonic :( I guess I'll save money not coming once a week.

I do love Mexican food, but this place serves watered down, bland too much Americanized Mexican food, which is not worth the stop. One can't even call it Mexican food. Yes, it looks like Mexican food, but it certainly doesn't taste like it. Looking for good Mexican food? Go elsewhere. Taco Bell's is better.

Traveling thru Canon City, we decided to stop for lunch. After looking up a couple places we passed by, we decided on Old Mission. Our server was very friendly, establishment was small but clean and quiet. We each had a burrito smothered in mild green sauce. I'm a spice wimp, and could've chosen the medium green chile sauce. I highly... More
