Thursday night is fajitas night and they do give you a lot of food. If you have a smaller appetite, two people can split this dish. The fajitas were $12.50 on Thursday night. Average service and not too rowdy.

I recommend this Mexican restaurant. The service is good and reasonably timely. The salsa tastes homemade. The chips are crisp. The cheese enchiladas are overstuffed with 2 kinds of cheese. The soft tacos are flavorful.. Hint: look up at the ceiling decor.

Enjoyed this restaurant’s food to-go while in Ouray. Excellent menu options, the flavors were authentic (the salsa was delicious) & they served a nice, healthy portion. Only regret was we didn’t eat there as the environment was very appealing.

We went here for dinner and to watch a basketball game. We sat at the bar with the owner bar tending. Great guy and he made great Margheritas! The fish tacos were out of this world! We will be back!

My husband and I ate here Saturday afternoon and by evening he was sick. I knew better than to eat the Pico de gallo that looked like it had been frozen and thawed several times so I was fine. This wasn't my first visit but...More

I picked up food togo, pork tamales with red and green chile (Christmas style). I was taking a shot in the dark but was/am pleasantly surprised. They have awesome food! I can't wait to go back and try many more items on their menu.
