Good mango margs!

Showed up in the evening and sat on the patio for drinks. I enjoyed a couple of very tasty mango margaritas. We did not try the food this time but are looking forward to doing that on a return visit. Service was prompt and attentive.

Husband had a living social to use so we tried it out. Tamales were good, enchiladas were good tho husband said beef the best and chicken overcooked. Chicken cordon green was good . We had the key lime pie for dessert...good but soggy crust. Nice to eat outside on the patio.

We ate guacamole, homemade chips and tacos on a winter's evening. The blue corn beef tacos were amazing. We loved the chunky quacamole and the margaritas were great. This is fourth time we have been and food has been great every time. They are in process of relaunching their website; in winter they are open for lunch every day but... More

Cannot honestly think of one positive aspect of this lunch. Lack of service. Cold greasy food for all 3 of us. Slow. Left hungry. Only writing this to save anyone considering this place the trouble.

Julia's was outstanding in every respect. Above all, the food. I had the "Tres Hermanas," An enchilada plate. I usually steer clear on enchiladas because they are never as good as I could get at mom's. These were AMAZING. My friend had a super yummy butternut squash, served on a bed of frijoles and green chile. Excellent service, ambiance and... More

Julia Blackbird's New Mexican Cafe offers a darling atmosphere - and great, authentic food - in the heart of the hip Highlands neighborhood. The pecan stuffed acorn squash is a perfect fall meal.

This is one of my favorite Denver restaurants. I have eaten here several times in the past few years and have never been disappointed. The decor of the restaurant is colorful and pleasant. We were warmly greeted as we entered the building, and the service was top notch. My favorite entrees are the enchiladas and the Navajo stew. We completed... More

We had a delightful lunch at Julia Blackbird's! Food was excellent and Julia was a treasure. We were fortunate to have great weather and sat out on the patio and soaked in the ambiance. Julia was a treasure trove of information about restaurant options in New Mexico so we'll have the benefit of this visit throughout our tour of the... More

The restaurant was packed the service and the food had an energy and passion behind it.I remember the back of the menu talking about Julia and her vision and passion for cooking. We told friends they had to... More
