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

My wife and I come down from Evergreen to eat at El Tepehaun at least twice a month. More when possible. Love the delicious menu options, the prices, the service and the staff.

I make it a point of returning to El Tepehuan whenever I am visiting the families in Denver. I don't care what I am supposed to be doing I have to come here first. Same owners and staff for over 20 years. I always get the green chili smothered beef burrito, chips, coke...Had my last birthday here!

This is a small, family owned café (since 1978) and it is a gem of a place...some might call it a hole in the wall, but it was tidy and the service friendly and prompt. For less than $10 you can get more food than you can eat, and it is really tasty. Two of our party are very fond... More

I love love this place. I love HOT salsa, and I saw a guys nose bleed eating it once (true), but don't let that stop you! It can be tamped down. The shredded beef is the best I have had ANYWHERE and the pork green chile is awesome AND gluten free. Hard to find green chile without flour! Carnitas, burritos,... More

I'm not one to get ramped up on all things spicy but this place did a nice job of making it just about perfect for me to eat. The place was full (a good sign of a good place to eat). The service was good and the staff was friendly. I've only eaten here once but I would definitely come... More

I wanted to try this place after running into someone who absolutely raved about it. I'm always looking for a good Mexican restaurant. They didn't have any specials on their drinks, but that was OK. We asked for water, but the girl never brought it; we had to ask someone else. There was a charge for chips and salsa, and... More

A great place for lunch, but you had better get there early before the crowds arrive. The service is prompt. The food is spicy and very tasty. The prices are reasonable. The restrooms are old but clean. Be prepared to wait for a table during the busy lunch hour, but you will be rewarded.
