Re: “The Flow of Mexico

I was never a big fan of chimichangas, the server (Ruben) suggested one & it was fabulous. The deep fried tortilla was crispy and the flavor was awesome. The chicken tasted just like the one my mother makes. I have been there 4 times. My kids love the food. The Red and Green Chile are authentic Mexican dishes, they are full of flavor and it shows how much effort they put into cooking a great home made meal. The presentation of the dishes are beautiful, we had the chicken flautas appetizer and it came with the vibrant colors of the Mexican flag. You will not be disappointed, and their variety of margaritas is amazing. They have authentic margaritas that you will not find anywhere else.

Re: “The Flow of Mexico

IMNSHO This is the best Mexican food in the Springs. We usually have to travel to Denver for good Mexican food but The Flow of Mexico is as good as Denver's best. The ingredients are fresh and I will not eat at a place that serves processed food. I'm not picky, I just won't eat Sysco processed crap. The Vegetables were fresh and the meat was a good quality.

Re: “Poblano's Family Mexican Restaurant

Been there many times and love it by far the best Mexican food in the Springs area and now with the new menu they also have great American food as well, their BBQ Ribs are awesome best I ever had they also have great steaks and pork chops. They have a friendly staff and give the best service in the area great place to relax and have a couple drinks in their sports bar they have like 10 TV's. Was there on St Pat's Day had the corned beef and cabbage dinner then again on Easter and tried the Prime Rib special both were top notch can't wait for mothers day to see what they will feature. If you haven't been there you have to try it!!!

Re: “Monica's Taco Shop - Fillmore

I wish I lived closer so I could come here more often! Their food is superbly authentic and delicious as is the green and red salsa to compliment your meal. Service is fast and friendly. You won't be disappointed!

Re: “José Muldoon's - Tejon St.

If you're out bar hopping downtown and have dulled your taste buds, the generic quality of the food may not bother you. Would recommend you stick to chips/salsa out on the back patio than invest in a meal here. Margaritas are what they're known for, for a reason!

Re: “Amanda's Fonda

Found it by accident on a real estate buying trip, ended up living here. Having lived for over 50 years in CA and eaten 5-star Mexican food, I give Amandas a 4. Good, but not excellent. Was disappointed when we first went there that there was no carnitas! How can you have a Mexican restaurant without pork? However, the rest of the menu was decent, I'd say 3-stars.

Well, sometines good things happen. Amandas now has carnitas, and decent carnitas at that, my rating is now a 4. If they want a fifth star, they need to begin making their own chips, serve them warm and improve the dipping salsa. prices are reasonable, booze is tasty, good margaritas. Parking on weekends is horrible. Outdoor dining next to the creek a plus, if you can avoid the T-storms.

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: “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....
