I don't know where to begin except to say that the chips came to our table WARM--actually hot but not dripping or permeated with grease. Light and crisp and strong enough to carry a load of flavorful crunchy salsa. Most of those at the table where we sat ordered burritos "smothered" with beans and rice. They were delighted--and didn't stop... More

This is simply the best and most authentic Mexican food in Colorado. I drive from Colorado Springs to go to this incredible place. The service is great. The food is traditional Mexican food, NOT Tex-Mex.

I've tried many Mexican food restaurants in the Denver area, and this one definitely is in our top five. The place was busy, but our server was excellent. We deviated from the menu order slightly, but nothing was amiss when our food arrived. It was delicious and the prices were more than reasonable. We're definitely going back.

This is the second time I have had a bad meal there. After reading the reviews, I was hoping I had found a good Mexican restaurant. The meal was such a disappointment. I thought it might just be a fluke, so I went back to try it again, and it was just as bad. I'm going to keep looking!

I lived in Denver many years and had no idea this place even existed. A friend took me here and I'm hooked! The food is authentic and absolutely delicious, the prices are very reasonable, and the service is awesome. A must eat if your'e in NW Denver, Edgewater area.

Hidden on 29th Street in Sloan's Lake, this neighborhood Mexican restaurant is a gem. Family owned and run, the food is always hot and fresh, and affordable. My favorite? The chile rellenos of course, and for $5.50 you can't go wrong. I also love the tamale, chile relleno, taco platter. The food is always fresh, the coke is always bubbly,... More

Nothing fancy here, just good Mexican food at a low price. I had the combo platter (beef burrito, cheese enchilada and crispy relleno) for $6.25. First helping of chips and salsa are free. Salsa has some bite to it, but isn't overwhelming. On previous visits I've had their standard margarita - very tasty. This place gets a lot of business... More
