Re: “El Taco Rey

I've since moved to Vermont, but dream of lunchtime @ El Taco Rey every day!

You never know what you had until it's gone...COS residents don't take this wonderful food for granted...grab an Av-Pork deluxe every chance you get...

Re: “Amanda's Fonda

Used to be the BEST mexican food in town. Has gone downhill lately. Amanda would be sad to see this.

Re: “Amanda's Fonda

Great food, good service but they are very busy, especially in the summer so plan on a wait. Try the Horney Margarita and hope for a booth.

Re: “Amanda's Fonda

We decided to finally head across town and check out this award winner. The ambiance is nice and the staff very friendly. Starting out with a margarita is definitely the way to go! The chicken mole was very good and had layers of flavor but none were overpowering. The only problem were the sides, the beans and rice were somewhat bland and need to be perked up a bit. This was well worth the drive and we will be heading back to try the chili colorado.

Re: “Three Margaritas

Exact same thing with Alfonso's Mexican Restaurant on 21st street. Smelled like toilet overflowed or something; gross.

Re: “Three Margaritas

Smelled like an open sewer! Not sure if they have plumbing problems or what. This used to be one of our favorite restaurants for mexican food, but the last two times we tried to eat there - it smelled so bad we had to leave. Horrible!!!!!!!! They should be audited and shut down until it can be fixed. Absolutely disgusting smell.

Re: “Poblano's Family Mexican Restaurant

I thought Poblano's was OK when it first opened in Falcon, nothing exceptional but not terrible either but at least we had a Mexican restaurant. Now that La Mission is open, I won't go to Poblano's again. La Mission blows it away.

Re: “Amanda's Fonda

Loved eating here when we lived in Mantiou - especially liked the chicken in mole, fish tacos, and chile Colorado. Outdoor patio overlooking the creek is nice when the weather is nice and when you're not seated next to a smoker (1 star reduction for allowing smoking on the patio).

Re: “José Muldoon's - Tejon St.

Standard "whitey" Mexican food that can be found anywhere. Insipid.

Re: “Amanda's Fonda

Adequate good food, but not sure why they keep winning awards. Didn't seem all that special to me. I thought the food was better a block away at La Unica....

Re: “La Casa Fiesta

The atmosphere was campy and the food was middle of the road.

Re: “La'au's Taco Shop

Tasty and fresh. Good quality, eclectic choices. Price and attitude a little high for what you get.

Re: “Amanda's Fonda

I've never had anything I did not like there! Margaritas are a must--so strong, but they go down a little too smooth:) The salsa is the BEST restaurant salsa I've ever had, burritos are huge, chile verde is amazing, and service is always super-friendly!! Beware only the guacamole--heavy on the onion, but it's decent--I just think $3.50 for a 2 oz. cup side order is a little extreme....
Overall, it's the best mexican food in the springs, if you ask me! I take all of my out-of-town visitors there and it always goes over well.

Re: “La Casita Mexican Grill

My family has eaten at La Casita many, many times. It is definitely a favorite. Inexpensive (though not quite cheap), very good Mexican food. Never had a bad meal there and the salsas, guacamole, etc., are excellent.

Re: “El Taco Rey

Fast, flavorful and filling. I can't disagree with the details above that recommend the Avo Pork burrito. And believe me, one is enough! Get some of their fresh lemonade and a ginormous slice of their tres leches cake and you may not need to eat again til next month. Close quarters inside, sometimes you may end up at a table with folks you don't know but they're all friendly. Some outdoor tables, too -- or just get it to go. Really great food.
