This place serves the best fish tacos on earth. The lime margaritas are excellent as well. Staff is super friendly.

Was looking for a casual lunch in C.B. after driving Kebler Pass. This was just what I needed. Enjoyed the Baja mahi-mahi tacos and my husband loved the chicken tacos. The service was fast and friendly. Will come back on next visit to C.B.!

Great place to grab lunch...I love their burritos and the options you have for fillings! Love being able to grab a beer and a burrito and sit on the porch in the sun!!! Affordable food, friendly staff.

We enjoyed a great lunch. The tamales were very tasty and everything was very fresh. We will go back when visiting Crested Butte. The staff was friendly and helpful with the ordering process.

This is a fast food type, order at the counter place. The service was fast and friendly. The price is also great for CB. We are more accustomed to Tex Mex but really enjoyed the New Mexico flavor. The green chile sauce on the tamales was excellent!

This place is so cool and laid back. We love having lunch here when we visit Crested Butte. It's just a couple of guys putting together your food right in front of you!! So simple but so amazingly good!! The burrito is big enough for two!! The chips and guacamole are amazing!! Love everything we've tried there!!

Tiny little place on Main Street. It's the best burrito I have ever had....ever. The guys behind the counter are friendly and funny. And, you have a hundred different hot sauces to choose from.

My wife and I could have split our burritos, but they were delicious so I over ate. It's a fun little place that reminds me a bit of Chipotle in that you sort of build your own burrito given a range of available toppings.

The burrito I had was very good, but over-priced. Skip the chips because they are store bought and lack any flavor....and in fact tasted stale. Very small place and not much room, would be better to take the food to go.

Stopped here for an early dinner on my way out of town. Had Mike's Spicy Shredded Beef burrito - which was quickly prepared & delicious. Limited seating with some outdoor tables, with friendly staff. Worth the visit if your in town.
