It was busy, but we were seated pretty quickly. The kids thought the décor was cool. I don't get the dollar bills on the ceiling, but it was a great conversation starter for the kids. The food was average at best. My daughter loves cheese dip and chips and almost cried with disappointment when she tasted theirs. Not a great... More

This restaurant has great atmosphere. We dined as a family on the outdoor patio. Food selection was great and the servers were friendly. If you are in the mood for Mexican food, this is your place!

The service was not what I would call great by any means. I ordered the queso to go with our chips and salsa and it was terrible. Expensive and terrible. Ended up just getting a couple tacos and leaving a little disappointed.

Pretty good Mexican food. We'd just come from Santa Fe and had eaten at the two best Mexican restaurants that I guess we've ever been to, but this was pleasant and pretty good.

Best place to eat in Ouray that we found! The Camarones was an outstanding meal. It is probably too spicy for some, but great flavor (has pineapple in the sauce for a sweet and spicy taste). My wife had the a quesadilla and it was great as well. I am usually pretty ambivalent about quesadillas, but the cheese blend was... More

It was okay, nothing great. Not too clean, the table and the chairs were sticky. the waitress brought us unwrapped straws in her hands and never refilled drinks. We wanted to sit outside but they said it "wasn't ready". no idea what that means, it was empty. The spinach enchilada was actually pretty good but everything else was just okay... More

We stopped in here during the early afternoon of August 4th. The food was quite nice and it was a nice change of pace from some of the "mountain food" we had been eating in days prior. The dark-haired hostess was lazy, unfriendly, and apparently distracted. We almost left because we weren't getting seated (and it was not a busy... More

Long wait and we sat outdoors to get the first available table. Was a little chilly and we forgot jackets. Food was good, service was so-so due to big crowd. Very acceptable Mexican Food

Stopped here for lunch. Sat outside wonder views when the weather is nice. Service was very fast and food was excellent. I had the spinach enchiladas in blue corn tortillas. Outstanding. And portion was right. My lunch companion had the fish tacos and loved them. He really liked the jalapeño vinigrette dressing. It is a house made dressing. I would... More
