I'll be honest. I should shut my mouth. The line in this place is slow and it takes awhile to get your order (I usually get it to go) But I can't be silent. This place makes a killer burrito. The chile relleno burrito is incredible. If these same folks opened up a few more places they could make a killing. Like in say, Boulder, where there very little good Mexican fare but lots of hungry people who eat out. Not sure why the damned things taste so good- I imagine the spoonfuls of lard help somewhat, but I think the real secret is their salsa. It's the best stuff I ever had. Feel like I'm in Mexico City (speaking Spanish at this place is an asset) until I look at the Rockies from their parking lot. Even the menu board is just like south of the border. I've been to this place at least 35 times over the years and have never ordered anything else other than the chile relleno burrito, and why should I? Just writing this makes me drool...
But get a side of salsa...very important..

Clean, bare-bones mexican food. Good, real mexican. Here's what I order: 5 carnitas tacos...my girlfriend orders 4. With orchada (bev.). No bar, but not an issue. The women are dedicated and work hard for an excellent, genuine meal. When it's all about the food and not about the scene, this is the place to go in Denver.
