El Chingon

Map & Directions 4326 Tennyson St.
Denver, CO 80212


Westword's Description

A year after Gloria Nunez and her grandson, David Lopez, closed the original El Chingon, a tiny Mexican restaurant that resided in an Arvada strip mall, their new El Chingon finally opened in an old house on Tennyson Street in December 2013. "We had to go through a lot of hurdles with the city," says Lopez, who shares the cooking with Nunez, a native of Mexico City, "and even before we unlocked the doors, there were people waiting for us in the freezing cold.” Many of them were loyal customers from the Arvada location, who love the the tacos, tostadas, burritos, sauces and salsas that had made El Chingon one of our favorite Mexican restaurants in the city. And now there’s even more to love, since this El Chingon has plenty of seats, as well as a hefty selection of tequilas and an inventive cocktail list. But the food that's delivered from the kitchen follows the philosophy that El Chingon has always followed: It’s simple, absent of flashy flourishes, and devoted to the Mexican food that Lopez grew up eating.

    Get anything smothered in delicious green chile. Churros are the bomb! Try something new every visit. You won't be disappointed.

    Mexican Food done right! La Pistola is a great cocktail with a little heat!

    Awesome food, awesome drinks, damn pricey though, not sure it's my first pick for a hundred dollar dinner, might check out happy hour though :)
