We had great service and good food. The green chili is great. Our group had breakfast quesadillas, huevos rancheros and enchiladas. The enchiladas were a little light on sauce, but tasted good. I'd stop here again.

Clean, great food, good value. Just a nice experience. Very accessible by major highways. Good meeting place, quiet , personal care about making you feel at home. Family that lives just outside Denver took us. Hour ride worth it.

Can't rate what isn't open. Seems to be an issue in this area; a lot of restaurants just aren't open at all on Tuesdays.

A group of us stopped in for lunch. The special for the day was a burrito . It was one of the best I have ever tasted. Just the right amount of spice. The salsa was different but very good. It added to the taste. The staff was so friendly and attentive. I recommend it and will go back to... More

The Brown Burro has been a South Park favorite for over 30 years. The reason is simple: nothing fancy just good food, friendly, great service and reasonable prices.

Based on recommendations we stopped in before heading out of town. The staff was very responsive to all our special request and the food was served promptly. There were a variety of options available and we did not have a wait.

Good but very small. We could not help but feel rushed just because there were so many other patrons waiting to be served. I cannot say anything was particularly bad, but I cannot say anything was great. I later discovered that it was the first weekend of bow-hunting season so that may have contributed to the extreme popularity of this... More
