Wow! Wasn't expecting this!

Coming from a town that has several very good Mexican restaurants, I was not expecting to be impressed. I was wrong. The enchiladas may have been the best I have tasted. A wonderful smoky flavor. The chile relleno was perfect. Crispy and not too much batter. It was topped with a wonderful green... read more

One of my favorite things about Denver is the local family owned Mexican food restaurants. This place has excellent food, great portions and prices, and wonderful staff. If you like authentic Mexican food, don't miss this place, it's been around for 40 years for a reason.

The Bob Burrito was and is the best burrito I have ever eaten. Living in Littleton for 20 years or so, El Tepehuan is a local favorite. Eating at this establishment numerous times, I have ordered the Bob every time. My wife and others always try different things and are very happy, I will continue to order the Bob and... More

The food was tasty, fresh and quick. The service was friendly. Although we had dinner, I look forward to having a breakfast burrito and lunch at a later date. Recommended by my doctor's office manager. She knew!

Enjoyed a nice meal here on the recommendation of a family that had a patient at Craig Hospital. The food was better than another Mexican restaurant nearby but I wouldn't drive out of my way for it.

The mouth watering memory of old and new favorites took us back for our 12th anniversary dinner. This little hole in the wall in downtown Englewood on Broadway is a fine place for a breath out of old Mexico, so familiar and dear to the heart of anyone who has been out in the local towns and countryside. Expect to... More

I have been going to this restaurant since 1983. It is been consistent and all that. It is the only restaurant in the Denver area that I must eat at a couple times a month. If I do not have ET's, I am not 'right'. I almost always get the same thing. I am gluten-free so I order the shredded... More

If you have never been there before try it and you will wish you would have. Bob burrito is my favorite. The shredded beef and green chili will make you come back alone.

Best Mex in Denver, bar none. I have been frequenting El Tepehuan for nearly 30 years, and it is terrific. I bring friends, family, and business associates who haven't been there and they invariably rave. Yes, it is a bit rustic, and as one obviously spoiled reader suggested, there is not a plush waiting area. But the food, oh my!... More

I love coming here for my Mexican Food Fix! The prices are pretty reasonable and the portions are big! The green chili is really good, and the house-made salsa is great, too! The beef and bean burrito smothered is my go-to. It's usually enough for my lunch and dinner! It looks like a hole-in-the-wall...no frills, cramped space. But don't judge... More
