The temperature dropped like a rock and we opted to eat somewhere close to the hotel. They had a blazing fire going which was perfect as big fat snow was falling outside. We had sizzling chicken fajitas with excellent pico and guacamole, too. I had tamales and a chili rellenos with rice and beans. Everything we ate was spiced right,... More

Wonderful staff that provided excellent customer service. We had 14 in our group and food came out at some time hot and tasty. Nicely done!

Good Mexican food, many margaritas to choose from, plenty of other liquids to choose from. We had appetizers, bacon wrapped shrimp and nachos, both were great. Close to downtown.

Cheese filling in chili relleno tasted like rubber. Also was cold. Tasted like it was previously frozen, not fresh as expected. Restaurant carpeting is filthy. Decor and furnishings are ugly and dated. Same as 20 years ago. Bathrooms are old, dirty. It's about time this restaurant sink $ into updating. I am a local. Will not be back.

I wasn't really hungry so I may not be a good reviewer, but I got a salad and the helpings of guac and sour cream were huge. The salad was very good. The people I was in loved their food as well and they all got different things. Portions were big.

I am not one for Mexican or southwestern food or so i thought. this restaurant was put into our must list by family from the area. The food was very good and the drinks were some of the best i have had. We ended up eating dinner here two out of our 3 night stay.

I had heard great things about this place, especially the margaritas. I can concur that the margaritas are very strong but I wasn't a fan of the flavors (fruit loop). The restaurant itself seemed to be pretty old and dingy and had an odd smell. The prices were a bit high for average mexican fare, but expected given the great... More

We had a nice lunch here this weekend. We are from San Antonio Texas and were looking for some familiar food. The food was good and we enjoyed it, beans are different from what I expected but not bad. Thanks!

We were looking for a place to eat on a Sunday evening in Manitou Springs. Other restaurants were either closed or near empty. The Loop had several guests and a few waiting outside. Ten minute wait. We were seated quickly next to the burning fireplace, which felt good since it was cold outside. Service was very hospitable and efficient. Meal... More
