Have been twice. First time, take out breakfast burrito that was delicious and super cheap! Really busy little place, parking is a nightmare... You've been warned. Second time in, missed breakfast so ended up having to order lunch. Chips and salsa are mediocre and offered to you as if they're free (like at other Mexican food restaurants). Then you're charged...

I asked for vegetarian green chilie sauce they said "si, si" , but it is not. Their red sauce might be veg but the green definitely is not. They do make a good spicy green chilie sauce and they have very good burritos. The chilie rellanos are a bit on the oily side, but the side of beans is very... More

I love Santiago's and this location is probably one of my favorite. I always get the same thing...a burrito with their WONDERFUL chili, lettuce, tomato and cheese. The chips and salsa really is just OK...but when the burrito is so good...who cares.

Santiagos is a family owned business that operates from several locations in the Denver metro area. I was first introduced to their breakfast burritos at the 6th Avenue/Santa Fe site. For the past several years, I have made the Leetsdale/Holly location my go to Wednesday breakfast. I'd eat there more often, but this is not exactly "low cal". Wednesday is... More

Unpretentious and unassuming. No fancy frills here. Just good Mexican food in a friendly, family style restaurant. You will eat well, for very little money. The only downside is they don't serve beer.

This is as an easy review to write. A true bang for your buck with some of the best Mexican fare around. This location also has the best tasting green chile in my opinion. The burritos are huge & tasty (with chiccarones is my favorite), and I really like having the tamales smothered as well, or even the crispy beef... More

Wow! these were great breakfast burritos. On our friends recommendation we ordered it half and half (half spicy chile half not spicy). Each burrito is made with a different meat depending on the day. Saturday mornings was Chef's choice, so it was pork sausage. Each burrito was only $2.25 - I mistakenly thought they would be small, tiny little things!... More
