Although primarily known for its Mexican food, Wondervu also has great burgers. Try either the Wagu or the Bison. Both very good. If you want to pass on the fries, which are included, you can substitute a very good house salad. Service is efficient and...More

This place was super convenient to Eldora Lodge. It's a bit pricey but the food was pretty good. Heavy on the mexican cuisine.

This great little place has excellent Mexican food & good margs. The nachos are not just a pile of chips with a bit of stuff on top...they are layered throughout with yummy melted cheddar & green chilies, & a half order easily feeds two people....More

I have eaten here many times and always enjoy it. It is not fancy, but the food is good. I highly recommend the guacamole. I'm not sure why, but it is especially tasty. Also the desserts are excellent. I did find the green chili to...More
