Great Green Chili

If looking for an mid or upscale Mexican - this is NOT it. It is just a step up from a dive BUT don't let that influence you. Santiagos green chili has been voted best in Denver multiple times as has their "to go" breakfast burrito for "value". It is my understanding they sell over 500,000 at... read more

I frequent this restaurant with a friend and the food is good (I couldn't quite say very good), the service has always been fast and friendly, the food is very reasonably priced and predictable from one visit to the next, and it's convenient for the area. The decor could stand to be updated and it feels just a bit run... More

The decor needs to be updated. Almost left but glad I stayed. Reasonable prices, sufficient quantity, and great mild green chili sauce. The smothered chili rellenos were very good and the tostada was stacked. The smothered tamale was also great. Nothing fancy just plain good food. I did the mild sauce not knowing but they offer a spicier version. The... More

Go just a short drive from the main part of downtown Golden to get some great Mexican food! Santiago's has taken over the building that was once a Pizza Hut on South Golden Road (just fyi, in case the shape of it looks oddly familiar). We went there for lunch on a weekday - every time we're there, we are... More

When I walked through the door I almost turned around to find another place for lunch but I thought again and decided all of these people must know something so I found a table. The two waitresses were extremely maxed out trying to serve so many people. The to-go walk up patrons got their food very quickly. The tables waited... More

Great authentic Mexican food. We had burritos with green sauce and they were very good. Service is very good as well. Reasonable priced and large portions.

They are well known for their breakfast burrito but since they reopened in their new place they serve everything and their green Chile is tops in the area.

Located in an old Pizza Hut (( the tables and booths and floors are old and worn out )) --- the food is freshly prepared, authentic Mexican (for American's) and Yummy!!! I had green chile smothered chicken enchiladas. I could taste the corn in the corn tortillas, the seasonings and the flavor of the chicken, and the smooth and spicy... More

Oh my God. Someone in my party decided that we should stop in Golden rather than Morrison on our trip up to Vail. What a disaster. First, they don't have a liquor license. Second, all of the food came straight off a Sysco Truck. Even the lettuce was packaged and factory cut. It was like eating at Taco Bell. Except... More
