Fairly decent Mexican fare here. Swift service and a good selection of food and drinks. A good place to go if you're beginning to get your fill of the usual "local Banff indigenous food" scene and just want to kick back and have fun. Regular...More

Loved the decor and vibes in this place! We had chicken enchiladas, the tofino burrito and the taco meal and all were extremely delicious and authentic! We stayed 4 nights in Banff and this was our favourite meal!

Four of us shared the nachos, which were fine but the pico de gallo sauce was wimpy. Then my husband and I shared a burrito stuffed with ground bison. That was much better, but still not very spicy. We added some jalapenos, and that helped....More

They serve good Mexican food here. The staff were very good and helpful. The choice is large. We loved the burritos and tacos. We also loved the staff t-shirts
