Nice family run spot right in town. Good food, quick service, reasonable. Seemed filled with "locals" which is generally a good sign - we were down from Denver at a tennis tournament. I would definitely go back.

We dine here frequently, and the food is consistently good. Save room for sopapillas for dessert; they are top-notch. I like the machaca taco Colorado best. My kids like the burritos. The French fries are particularly good. Chimichangas are good here, too.
