We stopped here after a long day at the Dunes. They had a buffet which looked really good but we ordered from the menu. Wow! All 3 dishes we had were excellent. We started with the chips and salsa which was fresh and well seasoned....More

Not sure how you spell it, but the Smorgsboard "Buffet" is the way to go! It has EVERYTHING on it, from fresh fruits to make your own tacos and the BEST Chili Rellanos we've had in a very long time! There was a lady there...More

We looked for reviews of restaurants and found Calvillo's to be number 1 in town. I understand that I'm the weirdest person on the planet, but I don't care for Mexican food. I went to Calvillo's for my family who loves Mexican food. I thought...More

Stopped on way out to Pagosa Springs, Colorado and this was a nice friendly place to have Sunday lunch. The food was outstanding and plenty of it. The combination plate was to die for, and my wife and Ii for under 25 dollars!

How this got to be #1 on your list I do not know. The service was good and the tacos weren't bad. But that is the best I can say about it. This town is full of Mexican restaurants and if this is the best...More

We enjoyed the buffet. Good variety and all was tasty. Employees were all friendly and helpful. Only drawbacks were that the buffet items are not labeled so we didn't know what some of them were. They ran out of chocolate ice cream. Also, it was...More

Not sure I can add much, but my understanding is the buffet is an all-day feature so it should be good for lunch. I think the other reviewers have provided an pretty good estimate of the price.
Do they have a buffet at dinnertime? How much is it?

Yes, they have a very good buffet or you can order off the menu. I have done both. The buffet is very good and quite extensive. If I remember correctly it is about $13-14.00. They had live music the second time we were... More
