Maybe you live in a bad restaurant neighborhood.
So...what Mexican restaurants do you recommend?

I am from Las Vegas but have had the chance to try some of Denver's mexican food choices. DELICIOUS! Have you gone to Jack-N-Grill? I have a hard time believing that Oshkosh, WI has better Mexican food options than Denver.

I live in Fort Collins, which has restaurants EVERYWHERE. However, I still find that Denver has some nice choices.
And what are those nice choices you speak of?

Thank you for making a recommendation. I for one appreciate it and will check out said Rib House when we get out there in a couple of weeks.

So how about the name of some of these places where you find great food?

We have 2 year old twins, so haven't eaten out much in well, two years lol! But we like a little locally-owned Itallian restaurant on 23rd in Park Hill (The Cherry Tomato, I think), Cork House on Colfax, and have tried several restaurants on 17th between downtown and York (or so), but I've forgotten the names. There's a great desert bar on 17th called "Bar D" (I think) where the chef is supposedly on the Food Network once in a while. I think exploring Uptown, Golden Triangle, Cap. Hill, Highlands areas, you'd find some great locally owned non-chain restaurants. I'm betting you'd find some hidden secrets all along Colfax east of downtown too.

Tacos Junior and Tacos de Mexico are both good. Little Anita's for New Mexican style.

Thanks so much. I love discovering new places and am getting a list together so when we get to Denver and we're out and about we have some places to start off with.

See, I have to disagree about Tacos Junior. I have one quite literally across the street from me (Federal and Jewel) and I've wandered in there twice. While the value isn't bad, and it's fresh, it's unremarkable past that. Maybe I'm a better cook than I thought, but it was about as good as what I make at home when I'm too lazy to make something time consuming.


One thing to note, being a white-boy with no Spanish skills made it challenging to order (menu has zero English, no English speakers behind the counter).

I'm surprised there isn't a "good restaurants" sticky for Denver.
