I'm from Texas home of the best Mexican food outside of Mexico so I didn't really want to eat here. Glad we did. I did the spicy ground beef burrito and my wife had enchiladas. Look if your thing is authentic Mexican you won't like...More

Loved the decor and vibes in this place! We had chicken enchiladas, the tofino burrito and the taco meal and all were extremely delicious and authentic! We stayed 4 nights in Banff and this was our favourite meal!

The last time we were here was 10+ years ago before kids and when we returned to Banff we were glad to see the place was still here. It was always rammed 10 years ago and the story hasn't changed now so we were glad...More

Very loud, bar-like atmosphere. Friendly service here! However, the food was just average. I had the taco sampler...one of each pork, shrimp and chicken. My husband had a burrito. No bottomless chips, but they did have peanuts and encouraged us to throw shells on the...More
