It's been over 7 years since I took a trip to Denver with my brother and found this magical place. I will admit, Food Network led me there, but living up to the hype was just the start. I've seen some reviews say "no frills" and it's true. This is a very authentic place with amazing flavor. "Smothered" has a new meaning now. We ate there 5 times that week. I took a road trip next year with three friends and ate there again, 2 times in 3 days. I miss it every day I'm in Massachusetts and will likely travel to Denver, partly for this place. If that isn't a resounding reason to eat here I don't know what is.
Easily a top spot. The tacos are cheap, simple, and amazing. They beat out dozens of Mexican spots in the city for 1/2 the price. Everything on their menu is at least great. Only thing is I would say the rice and bean sides are a little expensive ($7 total, but still good). I would go out of my way to come here.
Great solid authentic Mexican tacos. If you’re looking for it, you’ve found it. After traveling around Central America, I sure have missed the simplicity of good authentic Mexican food. This place takes the cake for being one of the best in Denver.
This restaurant was on my list of places I wanted to try in Denver. I was driving right by it at lunchtime, and I am so glad I did. This is my favorite type of location. A small, unassuming restaurant that is cranking out the best food possible. The menu is a little overwhelming at first, and the pace of the staff and the line are quick. There are many options from tacos, enchiladas, soups, burritos, and much more. I was drawn to the chile relleno burrito. What could be better than a roasted poblano chile, stuffed with cheese, fried in a light batter, and put into a burrito. The burrito is smothered in their green chile sauce, which was chile-based, not tomatillo-based. We sat at the counter because we were there during the lunch rush. This allowed us to watch the teamwork as they prepared each dish. Sitting there watching each different plate being made, I saw many other menu items I wanted to try. My wife had a chicken quesadilla and was happy with the dish. We should have ordered some of the tacos to try them, but now we have a reason to come back and revisit El Taco de Mexico.
If I lived in Denver, they would know my name at this restaurant. This was recommended by a foodie friend and rightly so. Food and atmosphere are authentic. We loved sitting at the counter and watching the cooks sing along as they cook. We ordered the chile rellano burrito and the huevos rancheros. Both delicious! If Taco Bell is your idea of Mexican, don't go here. If you want authentic, this is your place.
