A small, comfortable, inviting place to get no frillls, consistently good, homestyle mexican food. We have been dining here for years and can't imagine Pueblo without this place. Mike and staff are great!

Cheaply made food that tastes cheap. The bar is set very low in this town.Their award winning Chile is a soupy tasteless mess. Chile relleno is like an egg roll with some chopped up chiles and yellow cheese, not the whole pablano stuffed with cheese....More

We dine here frequently, and the food is consistently good. Save room for sopapillas for dessert; they are top-notch. I like the machaca taco Colorado best. My kids like the burritos. The French fries are particularly good. Chimichangas are good here, too.
