Enjoyed a fabulous meal! We were visiting the area and spent the entire day hiking. The restaurant appears small but they can fit quite a few people in there comfortably. The Margaritas were delicious but the Jalapeño Margarita was pretty spicy. For a couple who...More

Seafood tostada is a plate full of good stuff. Large chunks of shrimp, scallops and other good things. Best Mexican food we’ve had in awhile,can’t say I’ve ever had better.

We came here after a day of exploring Mesa Verde and were not disappointed. My husband had the Burritto Fajita with red sauce and it was awesome. I had Carne Asada tacos and they were also very good. We would come again.

Had a magarita made with all the 'regular' ingredients but with the addition of cactus juice liqueur - quite nice. Our party of 5 had a variety of Mexican dishes - we all thought our respective meals were really good. Service was excellant. Would return...More

Great Mexican food for fair prices, nice personal and interior. In the center of Cortez (a hideous town in Colorado).

Excellent food and friendly staff. They start out with delivering warm chips with bean dip and salsa. My husband had steak tacos and I had a combo plate of chile relleno and an enchilada. Both of us enjoyed our food. We did not have any...More

Perhaps, they could accommodate a large party outside in the patio. However, the inside of the restaurant is rather small. If my memory doesn't fail me, I think there were only about 8-10 tables . Go to their web site and... More
