The food here is good and the service is good too. Don't expect your meal to come out topped with a big layer of melted cheese. Instead you choose your options and you can have a nice salad, roasted veges or whole beans. I had the relleno and enchilada and they were nicely done and very tasty. If you want... More

Very easy Telluride main street location. In the summer be sure to head to the side patio and dine outside.

We asked a local on the chairlift to recommend some affordable eateries and this topped her list! Rightly so. As soon as we sat down we were presented with a bowl of corn chips and three salsas to scoop up. A good menu with lots of selections. Fresh, healthy, tasty....enchiladas, burritos, etc. quickly prepared. Friendly servers.

We came here for breakfast on the recommendation of a friend. We were not disappointed. Since it was 11:55 we were able to order breakfast. We decided on Huevos Rancheros and Huevos Motulenos. Both were cooked just right and the green and red sauces were tasty. The salsas that we got when we ordered were spicy and piquant. They came... More

We visited this restaurant twice while holidaying at Telluride. The food was very good and great value for money. Salads accompanying meals especially good.

My wife and I enjoyed a pitcher of Margueritas, and for her an enchelada plate, and for me a small burrito. Both tasted wonderful, and left us feeling full and happy. Good value, good food and good service. You can't do much better than that!

We were not very impressed with the food or drinks. The Margarita tasted watered down. It needed more lime. The food quality was good but could have benefited from more seasoning. Definitely not authentic Mexican food.

After a day of skiing, we headed to find a quick bit to eat. We stumbled into La Cocina and really enjoyed the meal. The portions were large (a small burrito plate was more that enough) and the flavor was good. Enjoyed a house margarita which hit the spot after a long day on the slopes. Enjoy!

New to Telluride, we ate here based on local advice. Man! It was so good. None of my teenage boys finished their food. We had full meals with ice cream for dessert. Service was great. Very quick and very filling!
