We had a late lunch here and although the service was a bit on the slow side, the food was worth the wait. We tried the enchiladas, rellenos, and tamales. All were just great. The chips and guacamole were very salty but the house salsa...More

Love the food and Margaritas at Adelita's. I am so happy they recently opened in Old Town Littleton, now I don't have to drive Denver to get my fix. I am very fussy about my food and find Denver to seriously lack for good Mexican...More

This restaurant is a great Mexican restaurant. It's very authentic. The menu is a rolled up book with a lot of options, the restaurant seems a bit on the smaller side but it's definitely worth the wait. The food is very authentic and tastes great....More

I wish I could have food this good near me. I read the reviews and they are right. This restaurant serves top-notch Mexican food. Go on the tamales day and get them at half price. Go for the creamy Chipotle sauce. Superb. While visiting Denver...More
