I only had the opportunity to come here once during my short visit to Crested Butte, but if I went back I would return to Teocalli Tamale for sure. Inexpensive, quick and friendly service, and delicious tacos. Not to be missed.

The tamales here are amazing! The margaritas don't disappoint either! It was very crowded when we arrived but the line moves fast and the food was definitely worth it!

Big burritos. Choices of four fresh salsas. Cheap, fast eats in an expensive town. My second time back. Will visit again. They also have 30-40 types of bottled salsa to try.

We stopped in while on our vacation for a quick bite after we got off the hill from hiking. Overall the food is decent, but the place could use a good scrub down. The staff is very nice and very helpful when discussing what we...More

This was our first stop for lunch in Crested Butte. Great tacos and salsa & chips. Fun place to go, eat outside or in, very relaxed as all places are in CB. It's worth the wait when the line is at the door. Enjoy

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
