Serving Aspen the Finest Mexican Food & Cocktails at 7,910 ft.

Las Montañas, located in the heart of downtown Aspen, serves Mexican food highlighting Tex-Mex classics (think queso and chips, table top sizzling fajitas, enchilada combo platters, and housemade tortillas) as well as ceviches and aguachiles. Cocktails and agave spirits, as well as our extensive wine list, round out the full Las Montañas experience. We are open 7 days a week for lunch, dinner, and weekend brunch.

The second floor restaurant, with views of the surrounding mountains, includes a large dining room with table and booth seating, large bar, outdoor patios, and ample space for large parties. The colorful interior, designed by Lambert McGuire Design, features familiar Mexican elements such as arched door openings, weathered wood detailing, bright tile, and rustic furniture.

    Absolutely a must when in Aspen. The fajitas are big enough for two and are simply delicious. Our server was Jess and she is outstanding! Highly recomended.

    We’d been told this Mexican Restaurant in the old Jimmy’s location was receiving rave reviews. Unfortunately, we found Las Montanas very disappointing. Service, while polite, was very, very slow. Menu selection was quite lacking, and prices were absolutely ridiculous, even by Aspen standards. Caesar salad was wilted and way over done with the anchovies, and the beef enchiladas were on par with Taco Bell. Mi Cholla is a much better choice for Mexican food in Aspen. Las Montanas will be lucky to last a season.

    My husband and I are visiting Aspen for a few days and dining out is part of the fun of being a tourist. We had an enjoyable.dinner and appreciate that there are some unique offerings on the menu, not just standard Mexican fare. In the spur of the moment, a friend joined us— I shared my salad with him and he ordered an entree and a drink for himself. Our server took it all in stride, without any problem at all.

    When this first opened it was one of our favorite restaurants in Aspen. They have changed the menu and raised the prices again. Chicken enchiladas were $34. Rice and beans were extra. Quality of the food was average. Margaritas were $22 each. We ordered beef tacos , chicken enchiladas, appetizers, margaritas and the bill was over $200 with tip.

    Everything was delicious. I had crab tostadas, husband had beef enchiladas, 1 kid had a soft taco plate and the other had bean and cheese nachos with steak. We are from Texas so skeptical of Tex Mex elsewhere, but we loved the food. The ONLY negative I have is the margarita mix was awful. Wine selection great though.

    Great experience, Jimmys was well replaced! Not as expensive as people are saying. Very comparable if not better than local competition. FOOD, outstanding. Get the Octopus and the enchilada verde. Next time we will try the fajitas as they were wafting by our table this time and smelled irresistible! Omar was our waiter, it was SO nice to experience a friendly spirit who seemed genuinely happy we were there. Loves his job and the food he is serving. We will be back! thanks for a great Aspen dining experience!

    Best restaurant I’ve been to in Aspen. Food, service, ambiance, fun—all 5 stars. I’m local to the Rockies and have been to restaurants from Vail to Aspen. Las Montanas is my favorite. Excellent wine list. Try the pineapple and ribeye fajitas and chocolate mousse dessert. Fabulous.

    5 of us for dinner and last minute added 2 more! The hostess figured it out fast & seamlessly. The fajitas are solid but the big takeaway is the molé! Loved the restaurant vibe. Chic & easy. This place will be a mainstay. I’m not old but the menu font is too tiny! 😂

    drinks were poor, food was good not great. price was stupid high for what the experience was. maybe locals just can't afford it but the food felt like an attempt at special but missed. my 16 year old daughter pours better margs and while its true as a local I almost never eat in Aspen because the pricing is just offensive and this falls into that bucket. also i think someone stole my friends Credit card info and used it to try to purchase a jacket at Gorsuch the next day

    The service was spot on. We ordered the steak fajitas. Coming from Southern California we love steak fajitas. Las Montanas chefs do an amazing job of seasoning and preparing the steak. It was the best! The tortillas are made to order in the kitchen. All you need is the fresh tortillas and steak, nothing else. The black beans were very good. I would recommend Las Montanas to everyone! We ordered a half dozen tortillas to go.

    Service started out great, but then slipped to the point where the server forgot our drinks for a good 15 minutes (and we were 1 of very few tables around). We had to request them again, wait a bit more, and frankly, the right thing to do would have been to comp them… but it’s Aspen, so of course not. Otherwise the food was pretty good. Overpriced for sure. But good.

    The food was very good, and we certainly enjoyed our meal, from start to finish. Our server was unusually deft at engaging with us, and managed the table and our orders very well indeed. The prices were simply ridiculous (~$175 for two, with no alcohol served), so it’s the inevitable Aspen caveat emptor.
