Westword's Description

Patzcuaro's has held down its address in Highland since 1978, although it's made some changes over the past thirty years, adding a secluded patio to the side of the dark dining room and also a liquor license, which allows for those jumbo margaritas. The restaurant is named for a mountain town in Michoacán, a Mexican region whose cooking is dominated by indigenous Aztecan influence. But save for a couple of dishes, like the Michoacán carnitas, the fare at Patzcuaro's is a blend of modern Mexican standards, with Tex Mex-style enchiladas and nachos alongside the tripe stew, and tacos stuffed with pork stomach and beef cheeks. The green chile is some of the best in town, too.

    $5 margaritas as big as your head. Trouble, baby, trouble.

    Eat here rather than one of the "hip" places in the Highland's. It's authentic, unpretentious, and the best Mexican food I have had in Denver at a great price.

    Spicy salsa, solid dishes, fantastic margs. Worth a trip or five back.

    Don't order the Unicorn Tacos. The sparkles, while entertaining at first, get stuck in your teeth.

    The house salsa has some heat.
