I relocated to this area from Austin, TX which has some of the best Mexican cuisine I've had in the states. I've been looking for a good Mexican place for a year, and I kick myself for not trying this place sooner! Location wise I hadn't tried it up to this point, but I appreciate it being so close to...

I recently ate lunch here with a few coworkers, and wanted to share my experience. I ordered the enchiladas (chicken and shredded beef) combo and the meal was a real disappointment. All of the sauces are thin with no flavor, the meat was watery and greasy, and the sides were just as bad. I ordered the black beans instead of... More

If you are in Ft. Collins proper, la Hacienda Real is a bit out of the way but worth the trip. It's located on the far northwest corner of town just west of I-25 and off the frontage road. For a weekday lunch, they weren't busy at all. The service was great, the margarita was classic, though the decor was... More

Ok... so yeah, the restaurant is near a major highway (I-25). So, it's location doesn't exactly make it a "neighborhood" eatery. Tends to make you think it's going to be on par with a Denny's. But, that impression couldn't be further from the truth. The place is nice, clean, well-decorated, and the food...? Spot on classic Mexican food. Big menu.... More

We ate an early dinner on a Wednesday night. There were already a good number of folks eating. We were seated and waited on promptly, starting with water and drink orders and followed closely by the food order. Chips with salsa and warn bean dips were complimentary. Everything was very good, very fast and as ordered! Location is right off... More

The food was absolutely perfect as was the service by Alejandra. Beautiful decor and cozy atmosphere, is located between about 4 different hotels, right off the interstate.

If you are traveling on the I25 this is a good choice- near hotels-gas stations Better than I anticipated. Lots of seating-some of the booths need to replaced-cracked seating but colorful fun Mexican interior. Service is friendly. Chips/salsa and bean dip brought out right away and drink orders fulfilled quick. Plenty of room for families. Lots of menu choices -... More

Usually on our trip from south to north or the other way around we stop at least once. It it perfectly located right of the Interstate I-25 and just across from the La Quinta Inn in Fort Collins. Service is usually great! This past December I was not so happy with the lady serving us. Not so friendly and professional.... More

I have rated Hacienda Real with five stars because of the entire experience. I would rate the food as very good, but coupled with an attractive restaurant that was super, super clean and staff members who were friendly and happy, the experience was excellent. Our meals were beautifully presented and the flavors were very good. The chips were brought quickly... More

I love Mexican food. This place offers a dish (sauce really) that I have never experienced anywhere else. A sauce they make there that is a smoky chipolte sauce they can put on enchiladas or burritos...delicious...a must try!
