REVIEWS OF Las Camelinas IN Colorado


Wonderful staff, service, kindness and food was delicious. I had the choose 3 of tamale. enchilada. And crispy chili relleno which was superb! House margaritas are very good as well. Really enjoyed my experience here and highly suggest Las Camelinas.

Patti Harriman

Wonderful place for Mexican food. Great chips and salsa (although it was more on the hot side than the mild side). Service was prompt and the food was excellent.

Ashley Bogdan

The atmosphere here is really great. Good service and great food. We came here after a very long night, and my uncle said even if we'd made our 12 hour trip just for this food, it would've been worth it

ken barker

Very festive and very friendly employees and great food

Luigi Ferrari

Lunch was very good, service was good

Kerry Tahmahawk

Came in a little before five so it was not crowded at all... both food and service was great. Likely won me over with the crispy chile relleno, but I will come back and give their specials a try as well. Decent price on combination plates and proportions are good, curious to try their more expensive specials (relative, $17-30).

Matt Olson

Good food and good margaritas, although it seemed to us that they were tired of tourists!


The margaritas were slightly above average and the nachos were less than desirable. We ordered drinks and told them we wanted to wait a few minutes to order, then didn't see them again for 35 minutes. I had to walk back to the kitchen to wrangle a server.

Benjamin Rush

Great Mexican food and excellent service every time! Try the fresh lime margarita. When you eat at Las Camelinas you are family.

Michael Simpson

I walked in because of colorful and inviting interior, and stayed for deliciously spiced fajitas, garlic mushrooms ,humongous margarita and tres leches cake to forget all diets you ever tried. Socializing with the owners and friendly patrons was like that whipped cream on a cake

Michael Gentile

Great burritos

Lisa Oldham

Chris smith

Matthew Wierzbinski

Great local place!!

Samantha D

I never thought I would have been blown away by a burrito. This place was fantastic, easily the best food in Salida. The restaurant looks great, seems very clean, and the staff was extremely friendly. We're probably going back tonight (twice in one day!) for dinner.

Jim Kiker

Wonderful, courteous staff and great food! The queso is worth the trip alone!

Luisa Abeyta

Great food and staff but price is too high for most of us.

Gideon Jungman

If I don't eat here when in Salida, I physically and emotionally hurt. It's a must eat and it's ALWAYS badass. Our entire band makes it a priority to eat here. Much love! Gideon -The Fabulous Boogienauts

jenny fishman

Great food and service. Server had great attention to detail and it was a very clean on the inside. My new favorite place to eat in Salida.

Jesse Truax

If you have children, don't even think about coming here. We waited for our table, and two other tables that arrived after we did, and didn't have any children, had their drinks served and order taken before we were even asked for drinks (which we never were). We received chips and had to ask the the person at the front for water. After 15 minutes of no interaction, we got up to leave, and they didn't even seem sorry about it. All we can venture to guess is that they do not want children here. They've lost our business permanently.

Lodore Brown

First time visiting this restaurant. The service was excellent, the food absolutely delicious, with a portion large enough for three of us. We met the owner and learned about how she obtained such lovely restaurant decor from some of her travels. We really enjoyed ourselves. I will definitely visit again when I am in Salida.

Traditional Mexican really unique blend on the beef fajitas!

East access, clean, attentive staff-very caring. Traditional Mexican. The meat in the dishes felt a little grainy. Looks like they have a full bar too. Could be a fun break from shopping for a small group or family. Wonderful lemonade!

Great big margaritas and fajitas... What more could a gal all for?

Carrie Ridenour

Amazing as always!

Andrea Mossman

Fun, food and bevies. A local favorite.

Roger Coit

So, this is the place! Great food, great service, and super friendly owners. If you have to wait a bit for your food, it's likely your impact on the community. Salida is popular and you're part of it.

Albert Gnadt

What can I say, best dang Mexican food I've ever had. Tried 2 new things and both were out of this world. Saw a guy choking, he must've not been able to restrain himself from cramming this glorious food into his mouth, can't blame him. Room itself is a piece of art. Tried to convince my friends to come back the next day, but alas my heart was broken. One day I will be back.

Brian Harrington

Great lunches, and pleasant atmosphere! Whistling, and singing waiter! Had fun!

Erin Knox

Really delicious, fresh food, and good service.

David Cottrell

Solid Mexican fare. Great service. I have to compare with the great number of Mexican restaurants I have been to. Would require something exceptional to rate 5 stars. Having said that, I highly recommend this place.

J Phillips

Delicious food, fast service!

Barbara Harbacek

Excellent food and service I live in Illinois.My sister has moved from Salida to Crestone but I still make the trip back to eat at this restaurant

Rivka Aviva

I love this restaurant. Food always great and great menu. The servers and owners are nicer than almost everywhere in the area IMO.

Austin Young

I am sad to say this place was terrible. If I could give it zero stars I would. The margarita was very average, but that was ok. The chips and salsa were acceptable also. Not great but not bad. Things really went downhill when they brought our entrees. My girlfriend got the shredded beef taco salad, and I had two ceviche tostadas, one shrimp and one fish. The beef in the taco salad was not good. The ceviche was even worse. The shrimp ceviche had a weird taste to it, but the fish ceviche was actually warm! Ceviche is made with chilled seafood that is “cooked” in lemon/lime juice. It is supposed to be served fresh and CHILLED. This was a pitiful attempt. This is the worst Mexican restaurant I have ever been to. Do not waste your time or money. The Mexican place on highway 50 is 100 times better.

Jackie Brickey

Great food!! Great service!! I would highly recommend. Clean place, friendly staff and great food.

Stephen Holst

Very good food and extremely fast service (we were there on a pretty quiet night though)

Joe Schupbach

Great Mexican food and Margaritas. Great husband and wife owners, very personable.

Inbar Horwitz

One of the best Mexican food I've ever eaten! The place is so beautiful, so authentic and in such a nice area.

Kori Spencer

The most fantastic, authentic meal!! The atmosphere is so wonderful and the staff was great. Oh... and I must mention that if you like to have a cocktail with dinner, their drinks are top-notch as well!!

david curtis

Great atmosphere right in the historic district. I had the skirt steak and shrimp it was amazing. Normally I don’t eat Spanish style rice but that was the best race I’ve ever eaten. very moist fluffy and full of flavor. A+ I recommend this place.

Michaela Carpenter

Such amazing Mexican food! The meat is seasoned to perfection. And they have traditional sopapillas!

Evan Springer

Food was excellent. Loses a star because the service wasn't really great. I think the server had gone on break and the restaurant didn't have someone to back her up. As a result we had to order with the hostess and one of the busboys who didn't speak English. We speak Spanish so that didn't matter but it was a bit frustrating. Overall, solid 4 stars tho. 5 stars when the waitress is in!

Rick Hum

Very good, quick service and great menu selections.

Michelle Pujol

Love the combo platters, the taco salad and that they have various sides, in case someone is not that hungry. Plus great frozen margaritas


Great with vegan requests!!! I love chimichangas; they made me a vegetarian chimi with a side of beans (whole pinto vs refried with lard) and Spanish rice. It was so good, and the customer service was excellent. :) Also, have recommendations for diabetics! How thoughtful!

Mark Morkovsky

Had the carne asada at lunch time. Promot service, very good food and nice atmosphere.

Food was good, quite over priced for what you get. Staff wasn't very attentive

Russ Schleicher

Best Mexican food and service in a 50 mile radius!

M Cohrs

A bit on the expensive side, but a big menu. Excellent food, friendly service. Much more authentic Mexican food than one usually finds, not your Taco Bell!

Jake Govro

This place is phenomenal, don't waste your time on any other Mexican restraint in Salida. Amazing food, to die for margaritas, and standard setting hospitality!
