Wonderful place in my new neighborhood. The atmosphere reminded me of a few places in Mexico, and food has that wonderful Colorado quality of taking good things and adding to them. We started with chips salsa and house margaritas. All were excellent. The 'ritas had a perfect blend of sweet and sour with enough tequila to add to the flavor but not knock you down. The chips came with fresh Pico, a mild roasted bean salsa, and unique and excellent pineapple spicy salsa. For entrees, we had a fajita steak burrito and chili relleno. Both were wonderful. The Relleno was the more unique of the two, being deep fried to make them crunchy and melting the cheese that flowed effortlessly when I cut off my bites. You can get it with red or green chili sauce. I had the green that was the hotter of the two. It was warm enough to take notice, but it won't make a seasoned spicy food lover sweat. To finish, we had the flan that was drenched in a light carmel glaze drizzled with raspberry syrup. It had a pudding like texture vs. the usual more gelatinous. It was very good. Sweet but not over the top. So we really enjoyed our first visit, and we're looking forward to working our way through the menu.
We had spent the day outdoors venturing the Garden of the Gods & Manitou Springs when a serious craving for Mexican food kicked in. Me, my boyfriend & sister decided to pop by this restaurant and let me tell you, we will 100% be back anytime we are in town. First, we were seated quickly on the outside patio (dog friendly) which was great. Second, the service was lovely (attentive but not over bearing) and the food was DELICIOUS!! We moved here from Texas where there is no shortage of Mexican restaurants and I was truly impressed. We all ordered different dishes and shared and let me tell you, not one plate had anything remaining when we were done. The food was flavorful, had a great kick to it, came out fresh, and satisfied our craving better than we could have imagined. Excited to go back and try some new dishes. Check it out!
Came in and was greeted with smiles, I'm pretty ugly so that's nice. Went to the bar got some chips and salsa. Not a fan of the sweet of pineapple and the mild spice of that habanero but if you are, try it. The salsa was mild but pretty good, Pico with it. Had the Birria tacos, a decent taco good amount of shredded beef. A side from the mild flavor, definitely a place to try out. Worth it... And thanks to Olivia my bar keep/ server took really good care of me. Check out the merch too.
Used to really like this place. Nachos were a good value, not anymore apparently. Not sure if they changed their portion size or if the lady that gave me my order lied to my face when I asked if this was the full size nacho, either way, $16plus tip for this? No thanks. I will not eat here again
Our favorite locally owned “go to” Mexican restaurant. My son in law and daughter like the food so much they had Salsa on the Rocks cater their rehearsal dinner. All 35 guests gave the guacamole, habanero/ pineapple salsa, fajitas, etc. rave reviews. We will use them for all future events. We highly recommend this restaurant.
