El Tesoro: "Great Southwest Food in Cozy Atmosphere" Colorado Springs Restaurant Tip by aja28

Colorado Springs Restaurants: 97 reviews and 61 photos

The food is really Santa Fe style Mexican cuisine. I don't think you can go wrong with anything on the menu. The margaritas are small but are really great. The restuarant is also small and has a very cozy atmosphere. I love going here for a quiet evening with great food. By the way, the portions are huge.

Favorite Dish: Santa-Fe style enchiladas are yummy. The posole is great. The tamales are spicy and heavenly. The spinach and musroom burrito is rich but tasty. The chili rellenos are also rich but are awesome.
