We went with 2 other couples after driving in from Texas. It had decent reviews and was busy so we thought we'd give it a shot. How bad could it be? Let me break down our experience: - We got there at 7 on a Saturday. We expected it to be busy, so we expected to wait. We were a... More

This was a pretty good place if you want some New Mexico style cooking. You do have to pay for queso and chips but it was still reasonably priced.

When we travel through Colorado we stop at Trinidad on the way to Boulder and found this wonderful Mexican restaurant. It is clean and friendly and the food is excellent. This time we tried the fajitas and found they had generous portions and were delicious. They also have great margartias and a friendly, knowledgeable staff. We will definitely visit again... More

To start off fairly-it's hard to get great Mexican food when you're out of South Texas and that was the case for this 'ol gal. The food was good but, different than what we're used of. I will say, the Beef fajitas were tasty but the total wrong cut of meat, maybe that's what's available? Yes sure. Wait staff was... More

Although we weren't quite your favorite, I'm happy you enjoyed the fajitas, Sonia. We use high quality ingredients for all of our dishes, including that one, but it's a shame it wasn't what you had in mind. If you're ever in town again, we'd love to have you back, and we'll do our best to get those refills out quickly.... More

As I love the Tequilas Franchise I must say the one in Trinidad is one of the worst places I have been to. Our food was horrible last year and so we tried it again today. I order my favorite arroz con pollo. The gave me a scoop of rice on the side and 4 little strips of chicken breast.... More
