Smitty2,

Let me know what you thought od Pueblo Viejo as I really didn't enjoy the place.

If you want a palace with great Mex and great green chile go here. We went a few weeks ago and it was great, my wife and I plan on returning next time down in Pueblo. It's not much on the inside but the place had many patrons the day we were there. Note: They are closed on Sunday.

12/08/2005 Posted by brentfm

Romeros has always been a favorite of mine for lunch. The food and staff are great! Not expensive, and the service always has been fast and efficient. Never had a bad meal... definately reccomend this place.

Pros: Inexpensive, Staff, Food

Cons: Location

Cool Ramero's Cafe Article

The City-Data police deleted my post even though the reporters name and the name of the paper was clearly visible. I guess this is the way you are supposed to show people good articles.

We found a new spot for us (although I think its been there forever)
El Taco Rey ... 330 East Colorado Avenue
So far best mexican food in Colorado Springs for us.
We got Pueblo Viejo, Mission Inn (and Romero when we visit Peublo)
Keep the suggestions coming.
Thanks, Smitty

Oh, we did try Pueblo Viejo ..... ... just not our style I guess ....
We shared a burrito with burrito sauce (what!! what's burrito sauce) very strange tasting .... sorry didn't care for the one item we tried.
We've gone back to El Taco Rey for the second time ... very good food. Tiny (like 6 tables) and cute place. But good food is the point, and it's here.

Oh My Gosh! That's it! That's it! I swear that if you do a search on 44th and Tennyson and tamales and green and Indian Taco, you'll find at least two of my posts and this one!

I used to go there and there was this guy in this little place. He sold his tamales for 50 cents apiece; red or green chile inside the tamale, and I'd buy a quart of his green chile. To be honest, it was a bit runny and on the hot side. That was ok! It worked just fine for me.

You see, for my family- we use the Green as medicine. That and a hot toddy would cure ANY ailment. Drink this, eat that, and cover up! Keep that blanket on you! Your pores are open now!

I hope it's the same place. I hope that guy's still kickin. I bet he'd still remember me. I bet those tamales have doubled in price.

Used to be a place by Applejack's Liquor that had good green and food too. I'm almost sure it's gone. They had a malt shoppe too.

I'm getting hungry.

Default Amandas Fonda

Amadas Fonda on the West side is probably the best mexican food in Colorado Springs! No lie! Carne Asada is to die for!

That's not saying much as some of us have pointed out. 'Fraid I need to disagree with you but someone must enjoy it as they do a brisk biz.

I miss Baja style too. As I loved the Mexican food in San Diego. I guess I need to try Los Portales and Jose Muldoon's. I have tried Jose Muldoon's but it's been awhile. So I can't find info on Los Portales. Is there a website?

Having read through these posts it seems that here is a market crying for at least one really good Mexican Restaurant. Where are the entrepeneurs out there? If you made it TexMex that would be muy bueno for me.

Last time I was in Colorado Springs, which was about 2 years ago now, I had some excellent Mexican food at a place called The Queen Bee-n, which is on Circle Drive just south of Airport. That being said, I looked at some reviews on the internet and they were less than favorable, so it may be hit-or-miss.
