Drinks were great! Dinner OK- I asked for spinach for my daughter and they said they had no spinach. I asked about the spinach enchiladas which I was about to order and he said they are frozen- so, no spinach. I skipped those and ordered...More

This location has a varied menu, portions are medium to large, service is rapid, and staff are friendly and helpful. Try # 22 --spinach, cheese, and good flavor!

They don't have cheese dip, (maybe that's not uncommon in Co?) and our waiter seemed like he didn't want to be there at all but the food was really good!

Subpar food and service. Do not go there to eat and waste your hard earned money. The salsa is bad... the wait staff are rude and the food is bad. You are better off going to Chucks seasoned grill for a burger and fries.

Good Mexican food on vacation. Lots of choices and non-Mexican options for kids, salsa was good but pretty spicy. Reasonably priced. Nice atmosphere.

I'm a huge fan of Mexican food, I've eaten at LOTS of different Mexican cantinas. I loved their nachos but their meat was a bit greasy! Service seemed a bit short handed but other than that I left with a happy tummy!!

We enjoyed the food, it was very good. The margaritas were not our favorite though. They seemed too sweet.

This is the best Mexican food you will put in your mouth. You can taste the freshness in every bite. Excellent service with clean tastefully decorated. For non drinkers I highly recommend the raspberry tea.

We ate dinner there twice. Authentic cooking well presented and a fair deal. If you like Mexican food this is the place. Great food and good service.

The food here is always great, good variety and more of an authentic Mexican flair not South West cuisine. The staff is very attentive and the food comes out quick. So try the Polla Ala Crema - yummy!

It's not my restaurant, but I do think I remember that on the menu.

They don't have a banquet room. This should have gone to the restaurant.
