Don't let the outside fool you. The inside is nicely decorated and we felt right at home as soon as we walked through the door. That was just the start. We were quickly seated and had drinks on the way before we even glanced at the menu. The selection is home-style Venezuelan with specials ranging from Central to South American.... More

I can't believe we have just found this place. Not sure how long its been open, but for some reason, we've never heard of it. It's on the end of a cruddy little strip mall, but when you go in, the place is very nicely decorated. The husband and wife are extremely warm and friendly. It's very much like a... More

We lived in Venezuela 40 years ago (Peace Corps). It was then a wonderful place with great food. Elote is a new restaurant (Jan. 2014) which serves delicious Venezuelan food that brings back great memories. I had the Pabellon which was succulent. My spouse and a friend had stuffed arepas, which they said were very authentic and tasty. We also... More

We don't live in Golden (or even Colorado), but visit Golden several times a year. For some reason, we'd not heard of Elote's Cafe until just recently. Given its high ranking, we tried this place quickly when we arrived in town last week. As mentioned, it can be a little tricky to find the place, given its orientation in the... More

Cute, small restaurant with great service. Food is Latin and inexpensive. Coconut cake was delicious as well as the plantain appetizer and Tuna Caribbean cake which is an entre similar to tuna noodle casserole without the noodles. I had the Pabellon Criollo: shredded beef with plantains, rice and black beans, It was very good although I am not a big... More

This place, despite being a little tricky to find if you're coming in from Denver, is AWESOME! I think I changed our reservation a few times - no complaints from the staff. We showed up all separately (we were coming from different towns, different work schedules to meet for dinner before Red Rocks) and were seated with a friendly smile.... More

Went there for the first time today. The food was amazing and the owners very friendly. Loved the passion fruit juice. I will definitely go back.

The Elotes Cafe has been open since January of this year, but due to our infrequent travel through Golden we only just noticed and tried it. My wife and I are a Hispanic-fusion family, and we delighted in finding Latin American cuisine well-done. (We lived in Venezuela a couple of years, and Elotes' well-prepared food brought back memories.) Although Luis... More
