I love Mexican food and have eaten at most all of the Mexican restaurants in the Denver metro area plus at many roach coaches and found this restaurant to be one that I will consider eating at again when in the area. The service was prompt and the waitress was very attentive, the burritos and combo plates we had were... More

Great Mexican food and the staff is very friendly! My husband and I both have our favorites and visit Tafalino's often. Several of our friends meet us for dinner from time to time, and we never feel rushed to leave.

My husband and I stopped in for dinner and it was great! We enjoyed the homemade chips and our entrées were great. The server was attentive and the price was fair. I would definitely recommend eating here! We will be back as soon as we can.

Great tacos, burritos, crispy chile rellenos and combo plates. Great chips and salsa given for free before your meal. Quick service and convenient location near the highway.

Just coming into town after all day on the road. Found this restaurant just off I-70. What a find! Service was great and the food was excellent. Some great choices. You can tell this is a local spot.

My mom and I ate here for a late dinner since it was close to our family's house. The service was pretty good, they weren't busy though, only a few other tables. The food was really good, I loved the salsa. It was also reasonably priced, we really liked it. We told our family we ate there and my aunt... More

We had a group of 10 people to celebrate a retirement. Jalapeno burgers were the top pick with lots of pablano and flautas dishes. homemade chips and salsa to start, very good. Sort of a rundown place in an old strip mall.

Nice enough place, but average Mexican Americanized food. The service and ambience was fine. One good note: The sopapilla for desert was a nice finish. It's a shame that Mexican food has become somewhat commoditized, but if that's what you want. Talofino's is fine.

This family owned restaurant is outstanding. It is the kind of place that people come back to again and again. Very friendly atmosphere and outstanding wait staff. Tafolino's has built a grand neighborhood following. Years ago the area was hit by 3 feet of snow and the only place that had power was Tafolinos. The restaurant stayed opened and all... More
