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!

I'm honestly shocked Buen Tiempo has such good reviews after going there for dinner. I had the chicken quesadilla, which is hard to mess up, and couldn't even finish it. And I'm pretty undiscerning when it comes to food - as an adult, I regularly...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.

Chips were fresh, but needed salt. Rice excellent. As a Texas I was leery of Mexican food in the mountain, but it was pretty good! A bit pricey for lunch.

This place was recommended to us by a local for their exceptional salads, as we were looking for lighter fare on Saturday evening. The Caesar Salad was great and their margaritas above average as well.
