*BEST* GREEN CHILE IN DENVER!!! – YUMo....if you are searching for the best green chile in Denver, give them a try....spicy and delish-ENJOY!!!
expensive, rude service, tastes like Benny's – I am shocked that this restaurant got such positive reviews. I ate here with my husband and had the tacos. No cheese, just bland, dry shredded chicken, and some hot sauce. He had a burrito. I could not believe how expensive the food was, Their version of a veggie burrito consisted of rice, beans and cheese. If you want it smothered its 1.00 extra. Tomatoes and lettuce are 1.00 extra. Even the burritos filled with meat don't come with lettuce, or tomatoes. The smothered burrito was swimming in sauce-so the rice and beans got really sloppy and it just dissolves.They nickel and dime you for everything. I have yet to find a CHEAP Mexican restaurant that is actually good in this town.
I also don't want to return to a restaurant that doesn't thank their customers. The employees were flat out unfriendly. The food is as bad as the attitude. I will NEVER eat here again. I could go to 7-Eleven and get a microwaveable burrito that tastes better, and for a lot cheaper.
This humble spot is one of Denver's most authentic, serving classic dishes as well as unfamiliar offerings. – In Short
The small yellow building brightens up the corner of Santa Fe and Seventh Avenue, where otherwise drab brick storefronts line the sidewalk. Inside, there's a predominantly Spanish menu stretching above the long counter and a smattering of booths and bar stools. Few local Mexican restaurants match the authenticity of this eatery. Mini-tacos come stuffed with anything from beef to fried pork to brains. Chili rellenos are soft and flavorful, enchiladas rich and burritos hefty.
If you walk past ..... – If you walk past this place to get to the one down the street, you've gone to far. Oh, the one down the street is good, if you want to sit and sip margs. on the patio and enjoy a "nice" meal, but this place is great, true border style chow. For 10 or more years, Ive had to "get my fix" here. My favorite is still the chili relleno burrito. Once I took my 70 yr old, finicky Mom in for a Saturday shopping quick bite and she loved it.
Delicioso!!!! – This place is phenominal!!! The salsa is so good I could drink it!! I live in the Springs, and we will drive all the way up to Denver just to eat here!! The chile Rellanos are authentic and fresh, not over-stuffed with cheese, or drowned in unflavorful sauce. You will not be dissapointed, it's worth the drive for sure!! The only complaint I have is that there isn't one here in the springs... maybe one day there will be, until then I will be commuting to savor the El Taco De Mexico flavor.
The best authentic Mexican food in town. – The nice women behind the counter serve up the best burritos and tacos in Denver. Don't be intimidated by the Spanish language menu board (it isn't difficult to order even for the biggest gringo). The green chile is fantastic and the prices are right. Can't beat it.
The Real Deal! – El Taco de Mexico serves up good, authentic, mexican food...some of the best I've had in Colorado. We ordered the chilie relleno burrito and the chicken sopes....both were fantastic. Loved the food so much, we went back for a great breakfast burrito the next morning. It's so great to find good mexican food, not the smothered in cheese Tex-mex crap!
Rico Menudo! – Try the menudo on Saturday or Sunday (only days offered) it's some of the best of the soup style stuff around (the other stew style stuff must be found elsewhere). Breakfast is worth being late to work for too! Burritos make the gringo Chipoltle/Q-doba chain stuff seem like the high end Taco Bell fare they really are. Mmm.
bueno – Wonderful green chile with tons of pork and good and spicy.
Rice & Beans from Heaven – I fell in love with El Taco de Mexico when my husband & I were first dating 10 years ago & I still love it! The tacos al pastor can't be beat and I have to have the Chile relleno burrito at least
once a week! The one negative reviewer must be like the chain resturaunt with the talking
Chihuahua and the chalupas! Not me give me the good stuff!
