Great place to eat downtown (even if the servers are a little over zealous)! Try to get a table inside, as the sun can be a problem on the patio. Great food!

Stopped for lunch, was able to bring our shepherd on the patio. We ordered tacos and margaritas. Salsa for the chips had a bite, not too hot but had flavor! Food was great, and the margaritas excellent. Service was great.

The owner of this establishment is always there, going from table to table making sure everyone is satisfied. Immaculate dining rooms, above average food - especially by Colorado standards for 'MexTex' style. Service has always been good the times I've visited. Nothing has ever tasted...More
