Great to see real Mexican food in Gunnison these days. Service was fantastic. Prices are a bit lower than the other Mexican restaurants in Gunnison, but still a bit pricey for Mexican food.

We were looking forward to a good dinner after driving all day and checking into our room at a neighboring motel. The restaurant is cute and looked promising. Our dinner started out OK --- the chips were great and beer cold and refreshing. The rest...More
