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.

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

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
