I love Mexican food. I honestly could eat it all the time, but if the people running the place aren't nice, I'm never going back. The ladies who were serving, especially our server Alma, were wonderful, efficient and patient. Everything our large party ordered was...More

Visiting Denver and a friend took us out to lunch here. Very friendly reception and quick service. Salsa was made up fresh, as was the guacamole. I had chiles relleno and my wife had a combination plate, both of which were well-prepared. Nothing fancy, just...More

Okay Mexican food, but nothing spectacular. Stopped here on the way to see Porgy and Bess at the Aurora Fox Theater since it was so close in proximity. Ordered the chicken fajita which was somewhat bland for my taste. The bright spot was the customer...More

Good food but really nothing outstanding. Clean. Pleasant atmosphere. Well stocked bar.The service was really good because of the "family business" aspect. In two words, "It'll do".

I'm sorry you had this experience. I wish you would have said something so we could have made it right for you. We work hard to make sure the food comes out the way Nabor intended and have our customers leave full and happy. We...More

Interesting place. Loved the server, Patricia, couldn't have been more helpful or nicer. The salsa is pretty good. The enchiladas were just gooey. Horrible texture. Had a bean burrito and bean tostado, both were decent. The Queso was very good but very bland. For the...More
