We were certainly not expecting to find actual authentic Mexican food in Silverthorne, but this place is the real deal! Being from New Mexico, we were hesitant to try Mexican restaurants claiming to be authentic, as the food back home is hard to beat. The carnitas tacos were awesome with the salsa bar fixins. Highly recommended if you want a... More

If you are in the mood for Mexican/Latin American cuisine and don't want to stop at a chain, this place is for you. It is an interesting slice of Latin America in Silverthorne and close enough to the center of things that it is convenient to stop here. We had a burrito and enchiladas con pollo and enjoyed both very... More

Self-serve authentic Mexican. We were looking for a meal on our drive from Denver to Vail- Silverthorne is about 25 miles before Vail. The taqueria is an extension of a local grocery store off the parkway- easy to find with GPS. Much cleaner and neater than we expected. The hostess was super friendly -a little amused that we didn't know... More

This is a Mexican market that has a kitchen and eating area. You don't come here for the atmosphere, but the food is authentic and really tasty. My girlfriend and I came here after a day of skiing and I really enjoyed the barbacoa burrito. Nice salsa bar with some super spicy options. Service was fast and friendly.

This health inspector's nightmare-of-a-restaurant has absolutely delicious food, but I think carry out is the way to go. The Newark City Bus Station outshines the carniceria in terms of cleanliness, but if you can get past the grunge and grime, you'll be treated to homemade everything. No need to put the word "authentic" on the sign; you'll be convinced the... More

I live in Denver. Any trip west through the mountains to Aspen, Vail or Breckenridge, etc, includes stopping here. It's divy, ethnic and heady with flavor. Your fellow diners will most likely be Mexican expats who live and work in the area. Fine dining it isn't. GREAT dining, guaranteed.

The food seemed to be authentic Mexican, not Tex-Mex. It tasted quite good, but was served on a plastic plate with plastic "silverware." The place wasn't very clean and it was noisy with local kids running around. Really, I would not recommend it and I will not go there again.

A little gem not many folks, except locals, know about. The restaurant is not fancy whatsoever but it is authentic and so good. Sauces, meat, shells are all very good. Worth checking it out and take home some meat from their store to cook at home, don't forget the tortilla's!
