Delicious, quick and easy. The food is so good. The place has a really good vibe too. It makes a great stop to fill up in the morning before hitting the slopes.

Great food, casual atmosphere, friendly staff. Order at the counter and the food is fresh and very good. No heavy sauces or overdone treatment - just good Mexican food!

Let’s face it, Telluride is an expensive place, so it great to find a place with good food, pretty outdoor patio at a reasonable price. The shredded beef tacos are yummy.

Fresh, tasty fare. Highly recommend vegan sampler plate at $13. Salads are exquisite. local and often organic veggies. outdoor seating is good. Friendly staff. margaritas available. organic ice cream. reasonably priced considering it's telluride. Don't recommend the vegan tamales- bland.
