it's average – these people who leave these reviews must have gone there so many times now they appreciate you. I have been to all the good meican restaurants in this city, and the food is average! their green chile is soupie, they make you wait forever even if there is a line, when its your turn they make you feel you should be greatful your there, and for fast food meican they sure take a while to cook your food.all around its average!! NOTHING YOU HAVENT TRYED BEFORE. but maybe something the neiborhood needs!!
so good it should be illeagal – YES! YES! YES! I am truly and hopelessly addicted to this place. Seriously. Im on a first name basis with the employees and go so often they sometimes dont let me pay!! Judging from the reviews and ratings, Im not the only addict. TIP: Get the #4 burrito,smothered, with a relleno (ree-yae-no) wrapped up inside (not on menu). Then prepare for the foodgasm. Oh and always washer down with a can of RC cola!!
Or just get whatever, tamales, taquitos, tostadas, #3 burrito, #4 combo, or my old fave, 2 rellenos smothered and an RC cola. Warning: the 2 rellenos smothered is very, VERY cheesey which means lots of golden colered oil that mixes with the chili and cheese to create a substance that could possibly make you die. eventually. I was willing to accept that. Thrillseeker, i guess.
The runny, somewhat nuclear red chili (not green) that they smother everything in tastes like nothing else on earth. I asked the owner about it and he told me they always only use special whole red chili pods to make it! There's also piggy simmering in there just to send it into the stratosphere. sorry veggies. :(
Lucero's, chubby's, and el taco de mexico aint got nuttin on this place! except dirty seating. Who cares? I prefer to wolf down my creamery in private so i dont gross people out with my moaning.
*Oh and watch out for red chili spillage on your dashboard or seats! Always hold the bag so container is flat and level. I ask for a plastic bag for additional chili protection on larger or spilly orders. If its nice just eat in the park! There is always many wierdos around so sit back enjoy the people watching and smile alot!
I just remembered they also have EVERY kind of drink, ice cream bar, slushy, old school candy, candy bar and chips. JUST GO.
Also, they close early (6ish). so plan ahead for dinner!
they take credit/debit!! I said GO!
Hidden, but a GREAT neighborhood find – I had to ask where the Creamery was - and it seems to be well known by the locals. Food is spicy and filling, and the owner(s?) are very friendly. Come to think of it, everyone there was friendly, holding the door and giving advice on food transport (don't tip the paper bag). FYI - if you cant find it, ask around!
A hidden gem in Denver – The owner is super friendly and knows how to make you feel welcome. Oh yeah the food is really good too! There is no place to sit down, but it doesn't matter once you taste the food. Tostadas, Tacos, green chile, and some of the best beans you've ever had can be found here. All around this place can't be beat for the service, food and price. Yeah it's a little off the beaten path, but completely worth the trek no matter where you're coming from. For less than $6 you can walk away with a ton of good food with such a good experience you'll be shocked you've never been here before.
Best undercover spot – I highly recommend any stop here for aquick carryout lunch or early dinner. One stop your hooked.My favorite is there smothered burritos.I promise you haven't had authentic Mexican food until you've had this!
