Alfonso's has the BEST chorizo burritos! It is on the west side of town, but it is GOOD! A HS kid told me about them and once I tried it- I was hooked! I haven't been able to find another chorizo, egg, potato burrito like it except in AZ!

Default I haven't found that one place yet

I really haven't found the best Mexican food in COS yet. I have tried only a few places and I think they are okay but not the greatest. I judge a little based on the salsa and the chips. I don't like canned/jarred salsa or bagged chips. I haven't found a place that makes their own chips. That's a simple thing for some but for me it seems like real chips should be offered and homemade salsa.

I think Amanda's Fonda is overrated and inconsistent.
3 Margaritas is a small chain - not bad but not great
Pueblo Viejo is pretty good. Only ate their once. I will go back.
Salsa Brava is inconsistent. The first time I ate there it was good, second time NOT.
Sonterra Grille - Pretty decent, but not authentic mexican
Fiesta Jalisco (Stetson Hills) Tried several times, different entrees...Terrible.

I think Senor Manuels makes their own chips. I like their Chile Colorado burrito (served wet). My husband loves their carnitas plate.

Casa Diego in Monument is excellent, been there twice and will go again. Off I-25, the exit for Hwy 105, go east about 1/4 mile at most, turn right at the second light into the strip mall.

I second Amanda's Fonda, have been there several times and the food has always been good. Like to eat outside by the creek when the weather is nice. For drive through fast food I like La Casita, really good tortillas there and good salsa.

I have to agree with Kristie73; that place is waaayy over rated. While I confess to stopping their the past couple of years to celebrate a win it's only due to the location and parking with a race car in tow. While I come from Phoenix, my mother has been a local for over 30yrs and still shakes her head when this place is showered with praise. The creek is nice as is the building, the food is marginal at best.

I'll make note some of the other places mentioned here and hope to try a couple of them next time I'm in town. Thanks for the names~!

What does anyone know about The Margarita at Pine Creek? I don't think it's authetic Mexican but I think their menu is Southwestern cuisine and then some. I know their menu changes daily. I'm going to try it this weekend.
