When ever my son and I go camping, we stop and get a dozen or more Breakfast Burritos. They are delicious and freeze well. We eat them as an easy camping breakfast meal. They last for three or four days (start frozen) in a cooler.

I grew up in San Diego so I KNOW good Mexican food. We were at Santiago's in Golden, Colorado for a wedding rehearsal dinner in June 2016 and I was totally impressed with everything. I thoroughly enjoyed my burrito, as well as got to sample a few bites from my husband's plate as well. Extremely good Mexican food! The staff... More

Santiago's has seen better days. The floor is pitted, the seats in several of the booths are torn with the stuffing exposed, the veneer on the tables is worn exposing the base, which gives a bad impression of what your dining experience will be like. Our waitress was sitting in one of the booths eating between taking our order and... 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

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 this location alone... 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.
