Westword's Description

Stop in El Taco de Mexico during the worst crush of a busy rush, and you'll be in the most jumbled, bungled, mingled, noisy, crowded and cosmopolitan spot in the entire city. The narrow space (which includes a diner-style counter and a few hard plastic booths) will be full of wholesome kitchen smells and packed with people chasing after El Taco's reputation -- regulars from the neighborhood, Denver foodies with a yen for the simple charms of authentic old Mexico City flavors, cholos, gringos and everyone in between.

Merchant's Description

We are a family owned restaurant which opened in Denver, Colorado in 1985. Our flavors come from Mexico City with a rich culinary history. We have all the typical Mexican Fare you have come to expect from a Mexican restaurant Enchiladas, Chile Rellenos, Tacos, Burritos, Tamales and the not so typical Gorditas, Synchronizadas, Chilaquiles & Sopes.

    Winner of Westword's Best of Denver 2010 - Best Green Chile!

  • Denver Westword on 10/19/11

    Try this iconic dive's verde. It is an incredible food high that's full of invigorating spices, deposits of pork and a slew of hot chiles for maximum twang!

  • Bart L. on 04/20/10

    Get the chili relleno burrito.

  • David C. on 03/26/10

    Go to El Taco de Mexico. Order a delicious cabeza burrito smothered in green chili. Eat it outside if it's nice or take it home to go and watch It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia while you chow down.

    Try the chilequiles – best in Denver.
