Excellent service and great food. Our waiter was awesome, we were sat in a safe, socially distanced part of the restaurant, and the food was outstanding.

This is a fantastic place to visit while in Vail. We had some delicious cocktails. The chips, salsa and queso were terrific. Our tacos were amazing. My husband absolutely loved his fajitas.

This is the third time we’ve eaten here. Their spicy margarita is delicious. Also love their queso blanco with chorizo. And their tacos. Their Korean taco was so good. Don’t listen to the bad reviews. The tacos are better than the burritos

We eat at El Segundo often. The food is very good and the margaritas are excellent. Usually we are fortunate to get a friendly waiter/waitress but this time our luck ran out. I don't know her name but we were in the back room and she was borderline unfriendly. One of my friends asked if she could have a little more salsa (the serving with the taco salad is tiny) and she went and got another tiny serving... I would say three tablespoons max. She was charged $.50 for it. That is ridiculous. Most Mexican restaurants give you a bowl of salsa (and chips) for free when you sit down. Salsa costs them next to nothing. We all thought that was cheap and tacky. Not sure if that is restaurant policy or just our waitress. Wish we'd had Monica who is so nice and accommodating. Oh well, it can't be great every time I guess.

Great ambiance located in the heart of Vail Colorado.
Indoor and outdoor seating are appealing with doors open to the patio.
Service was very good too!

We had a lovely time on the patio. The service was great however, the drink and food was a bit overpriced. I'll only go there when they restart a Happy Hour menu.

Food was incredible. Ambiance was good. Server was very inattentive and we had to wait quite a while for drink refills. Under and around tables was filthy, and tables needed sanitized.

Best value in Vail! Food was delicious— recommend tacos, for sure. Top shelf margarita on the rocks was superb.
We’ve enjoyed this restaurant twice in the last four weeks and always seated promptly and have had great attentive service; the chef even walked around and asked if our meal was to our satisfaction. Highly recommend!
