I have driven by this place so many times without ever giving it a chance. My brother was in town and wanted authentic Mexican. After looking at the reviews, I though it worth the chance. Boy am I glad I did. Service was outstanding. Our waitress was very attentive and food delivered promptly. I ordered the chimi combo plate. Very tasty and well prepared. My brother ordered a combo plate and was likewise pleased. Food tasted fresh and very well seasoned. Margarita was good and well mixed. The decor may not be restaurant chain worthy, but somehow that added to the ambiance. Everything including restrooms were very clean. In my option, this speaks of a family run business that cares about what they do. I would recommend you consider abandoning the Denver chains, and give this place a try. You might, like me, find a new favorite!

Another great takeout meal! They have the BEST & freshest top shelf margaritas in the area. Careful though, they’re strong :) Their food had a different taste compared to past, maybe some recipe changes, but nothing bad and we loved it. Super fresh and delicious. Salsa is always fresh and flavorful.

Went there, FINALLY, after driving by the place every time we head down the hill. Our server Casper was AMAZING!!!! Very attentive and even came by and chatted when we were done. He is the MAIN REASON that we went back a few days later. The owner's daughter was our server this time and she was great as well. Casper came in after we were seated and came over to say Hi. The Sopaipillas are EXCELLENT. So is The Chicken Breast Taco Salad and the fried Chimi Combination (w/shredded beef). You really should give this place a try. It has festive decor and is super CLEAN. Our only regret is not going in sooner. If you DO go, be sure and ask for Casper!
