OK selection, but slightly limited. Fresh taste and clean atmosphere makes for a great late lunch spot.

Teo never disappoints. Great food and you’ll never leave hungry. Probably the best Mexican food in town now. Great happy hour and margarita specials during the off season!

Huge burritos and great tamales. It’s small and easy to grab and go or sit and eat quick. No wait. Behind the counter looks a little dirty but the food was good.

We had margaritas with our taco whatever's. We each had satiating meals. It's a cheap eat out. A bit like a takeaway.

This is a awesome place for a quick lunch. Giant burritos and great tasting tamales. Try the spicy pork.

This little place is small but mighty. Very good tacos, tamales and other tex mex food are offered in a laid back style. Very good cheap eats in this Colorado ski town. Great for lunch, snack or inexpensive dinner.

Being from So. Texas, tamales are a tradition. Teocali Tamale is comfort food perfection. If you're a light-your-lips-up spicy foodie then go for the green chile! Not overwhelming but delivered the good heat! They offered mild pork tamales that any self-respected Texican would scarf down...More

No. Teo doesn't take reservations. It is a walk in only place where you stand in line to get the amazing food. In fact Teo works best when busy when everyone orders and then looks for a seat. Nothing makes me more cranky... More
