We picked this one because my granddaughter needed to use the restroom and it was easy to get to (other than other places with construction interference ) there was an outside patio as well. My daughter went in with 3 year old and asked about...More

La Mariposa has an extensive menu, including a fair amount of seafood (oysters on the half shell?). Tortilla chips provided before the meal were nice, thin and crispy. Salsa very simple and very mild. Chicken enchiladas with tomatillo sauce were good, as were the accompanying...More

Dinner for two on a weekday. Typical Mexican family restaurant. Fajitas were flavorful with tender meat and freshly-made garnishes. Chimichanga was crunchy on the outside and accompanied by the standard rice-&-beans. Drinks are large and reasonably priced. Ambience was pleasant and clean. Food was totally...More

The atmosphere is nice inside. The food is usually overpriced for the quality. The staff is friendly and the service is average to slow. I go here because it is the only Mexican restaurant in Lyons.

Our server left the restaurant for about a half an hour, and no-one covered for her, so we were abandoned. The hostess didn't appear to care at all. The food was average at best.

You can go ANYWHERE in town and get better service...seriously, like the gas station. We waited an hour for our food. Had to get up and seek out a server for refills, twice. The vibe of everyone who worked there was "I hate my job....More

Dropped in on impulse to see if we could find a better restaurant than Smokin Dave's in Lyons- and we did! Besides having bronco football day specials, Mariposa has midrange Mexican food. We tried the Mariposa special fajitas and we're not disappointed. We would. to...More
