Mexican Picks in Winter Park 2010

Mexican restaurants Winter Park COWith the end of ski season coming upon us it seems that we have been eating out more than usual.  And maybe because it is now spring I have been having a hankerin’ for Mexican food and margaritas.  So in the last week or so we have eaten at Azteca in Winter Park, Lime in the Winter Park  Resort Village and Mountain Rose.  I thought I would give a run down of what I thought of these Mexican food serving establishments.  Mountain Rose serves lots of different types of food but when we were there I had a burrito and I will include that in this blog.

Aztecathis is one of our usual haunts and they serve up some great salsa and margaritas.  We usually order the espresso burrito (no idea why it’s called that) and it is always very tasty.  Azteca has two locations in the Winter Aprk area and we seem to always go the the one in the Kings Crossing building.

Lime – My wife had sworn off Lime the last time we went ther because of the cold in the building and the food. After skiing this week we decided to give it another chance and we were rewarded.  It seems Lime has figured out their heating issues and have inproved their kitchen.  I had a mix of three enchiladas (chicken, beef, cheese) and the wife had a bowl of black bean soup.  All  was very good as well as fantastic chips and salsa.  Carolina our server was very friendly and helpful.

Mountain Rose Cafe – This is a breakfast/lunch place that serves up a great chicken or breakfast burrito.  My wife tells me they have great baked goods and other items but I always get the breakfast or lunch burrito.

There is also Carlos and Maria’s in the Cooper Creek square that I have not been to in over a year.  From my memory they have decent food and some pretty good margaritas.  A couple of friends I ski with swear by Carlos and Maria’s as the best Mexican food in the Winter Park area.

So, ’tis spring and the time for tacos, burritos and margaritas!  Get on out and have a cold margarita in Winter Park, Colorado.
