This was our first stop for lunch in Crested Butte. Great tacos and salsa & chips. Fun place to go, eat outside or in, very relaxed as all places are in CB. It's worth the wait when the line is at the door. Enjoy

The absolute best! I am so picky with fish tacos and these knocked it out of the park! All of the food was fresh and delicious. Not to mention the margaritas-a must have! My husband also loved his pork burrito. I don't think you can...More

My friends and I ran in right before they closed. They were happy to serve us and completely chill with how long it took us to decide. This was great since the place before said we could eat there in 3 days. I'm so glad...More

Glad you and your friends had a great experience. We strive for excellent customer service while still servicing in a quick manner. I too like spicy foods and hope you check out our awesome hot sauce rack next time if you need that extra kick....More

Our family loves this place, think Chipotle/Qdoba before they were corporate. The place is full of locals. Delish burritos, try the shredded beef with queso! Always full of locals. One warning, if there is significant powder on the mountain, it may be closed until noon😎

Quick, fresh, and delicious. Limited seating; small space. Thai burrito was a fun change in flavor for a burrito.

Don't walk, run to Teo. Their burritos, tamales and tacos are the best in Crested Butte. This is where the locals eat. You will never have to wait for hours like some of the other places in town during peak season.

Stopped in after a great day of skiing and had two tamales and chips and salsa. Left feeling full and very pleased with the quality of food. Small place with a good vibe and the prices are decent for a resort town. If you like...More

had dinner here with my son and his girlfriend - she and I split a burrito - there is no way I could have had one to myself - it was very good - restaurant is small, but there was room for everyone there

No. Teo doesn't take reservations. It is a walk in only place where you stand in line to get the amazing food. In fact Teo works best when busy when everyone orders and then looks for a seat. Nothing makes me more cranky... More
