A little piece of heaven – La Loma is hands down the best Mexican Restaurant in Denver. I have taken just about everyone I know and they have never served anything less than a spectacular meal. The chimicangas are mouth watering and unlike most restaurants they serve the green chili on the side so the chimi remains crispy. The rellenos are also about the best I have ever had. The side dishes, typical beans and rice are not your standard fair both having wonderful flavor but being slightly different from your mainstream mexican joints. I know many people are either a fan of green or red but not of both but you really need to try them both here. They have a descent margarita and the service is typically speedy and friendly.
Editorial Review – Set in a historic northeast Denver home, this upscale casual Mexican restaurant has been a dining and drinking institution for decades.
I am hungry now – I love La Loma. this is always a great place to go for lunch or even for business. The staff is great, and the tortilla chips and fajitas are great.
Over rated and priced – Not bad, but not great either. The atmosphere was nice, the giant Margs were Tasty. I ordered the Tacos al carbone and they were just wrong and pricey. A great Mexican should have great tacos in my opinion. The menu was pretty limited. I might go back to give it another try, but not any time soon.
Good Mexican Food – As far as affordable mexican food goes this place is pretty good. We went on a weeknight so it was fairly empty and the service was good. I've had better mexican food in town but I would probably go back.
Magnifico! – I first ate at La Loma in the late 1980's. It's food has maintained a high level of quality and I've never been disappointed. You may, though, wait for dinner or even lunch service if you go without a reservation or during peak times. It's worth the wait - relax and have a wonderful margarita on the rocks. On a warm day or evening the patio area will make you want to stay all night. No wonder there can be a wait for tables. Don't miss going.
I Love La Loma – I absolutly love La Loma! It's a great place to go to if your looking for good Mexican food and a nice environment. My favorite item is defenitly the Mexican hamburger.
Over Rated – Food was just above Casa Bonita. As a Colorado native I've heard so much about La Loma. The service was very slow, we had to belly up to the bar to get service, there were 8 of us sitting at the table area. Our food server was busy watching people instead of watching his area. By the time the first person in our party was done with his food the 8th person recieved hers. Very Poor...
Upscale Mexican and Romantic too – I first went to La Loma 6 years ago. I keep coming back! I continue to think this is one of the top Resturants in metro Denver.
There are so many good things to say, but first -
THIS IS POPULAR PLACE AND THERE ARE SIGNIFICANT WAIT TIMES!
Make reservations or be prepared to wait!
KNOW THAT IT IS WORTH EVERY MINUTE!
Excellent chimichangas, some very good margaritas (the large ones are almost always very very strong), their own homemade tortillas both corn and flour (they are the absolute best I have had in Denver!), are some of the very good reasons to eat at La Loma.
The veranda seating is great in the summer and quite romantic with views of Downtown. Inside you can get a cozy corner, relaxing both, or a table in one of their many rooms.
My Fave – I first went to La Loma several years ago, and I have never been dissapointed. The food has always been wonderful (especially the fajitas and fried ice cream), and I was recently able to try one of their margaritas for the first time. It was great, too. The service is sometimes a little slow, but it is worth it. Try it. You'll love it.
