    I like the decor, location and ambiance. However the food is just not that great. It's ok....expensive, fancy Mexican.

    I prefer the Highlands location. This location is extremely claustrophobic and parking is even worse! Was over it within 10 minutes of seating

    Every taco I've tried so far has been delicious. The carnitas and asada are spiced just right with tender juicy meat. The Paloma was refreshing and a perfect pairing.

    Lengua tacos are out of this world. The drinks are very well done and variety is spectacular. You have to go to this taqueria when in Denver!

    Pork belly, grilled octopus, and fish tacos with chimichurri were delicious!

  • Nick D.

    Some of the best tacos in Denver. Highly recommended.

  • Josiah F.

    Tacos are small yet pack significant punch in taste and flavor. Their old fashioned isn't too shabby either.

    Eat some delicious tacos and pick a shot to try from the giant wall of liquor!

    The wait and lack of seating management far out way the very good food

    Brian Merz · October 11, 2014

    Always get the churros.

    Lindsey Garrett · September 25, 2014
  • Jose R.

    Have the Lengua tacos. Ask the server for recommendations too.

    Jose Rios · September 8, 2014
  • Kelsey M.

    The best place for tacos in Denver... May need to wait awhile, but worth it. Margaritas or Palomas make the wait a bit easier!

    As with the truck, the fare in these restaurants focuses on street tacos – but at the truck, you don’t get the bonus of tequila and whiskey. Read more

    With all the taco joints in town, you wouldn't think it was possible to come up with a new, better way to do one. Read more

    His must-have is the $3.50 "agridulce" taco, an inspired combination of sweet-and-sour braised pork belly, candied garlic, and cabbage and cilantro slaw in a corn tortilla. Read more

    Hongos and Carnitas, and the Guayayuh!! Yes, you're welcome!

    Skip the diet and get the churros. Really. You'll thank me.

    Dafna Michaelson · December 3, 2013
  • Aaron C.

    The carnitas, the pork belly, the sloppy joses... I guess just get everything.

    Aaron Cohen · November 12, 2013
  • Rebecca A.

    Queso with chorizo was a disgrace- too much butter/grease not enough flavor. The Asada tacos had ZERO seasoning and bite of disappointment. But the shrimp and scallop and the surf n turf were def best

    Rebecca Arnold · November 10, 2013
  • Yuri L.

    Margarita is exceptional! Form the food in order I like it: lengua - 1st place, pollo a la crema and pescado - 2nd place, carnitas, camaron a la parilla and pork belly "agridulce" - 3rd place.

    Yuri Legai · October 6, 2013

    Order all 6 salsas

    The "House Casa Crib Coin Margarita" uses Exotico Blanco Tequila, cointreau, house simple syrup, and lime -- complete with a salted rim and plenty of attitude.

    Denver Westword · July 23, 2013
  • Jessie R.

    Queso la plancha, barbacoa, belly, limade, carnitas, asada. Ok the whole menu is delicious!! A/C broken which sucks but outside is nice

    Jessie Ramos · June 19, 2013
  • Anthony R.

    If you've never been, then HURRY THE HELL UP! Honestly haven't had a single disappointing moment during multiple visits. We've had every item on the menu, and they all deliver! AMAZING MARGS!

    This sneaky joint can't to post their name on the sign, so look for the star on York St near Colfax. They're probably also trying to keep their $3 happy hour specials under wraps. Best tacos ever!!!

    Bathrooms are hot at shit....literally!!!

    Incredible whiskey selection in the corner of this bar. Surprising spot for pappy, rip van winkle, and others.

    Rob Johnson · April 28, 2013
  • Sara E.

    Always awesome food. Best queso ever! Tonight, there was a wait and the table we were in line for took an hour to get up, so the manager comped our apps and drinks. Smart, courteous business!

    Delicious tacos! The $50 tab was a bit hard to swallow. #MentionADislike

    This place kills it! Be prepared for abit of a wait, but don't worry it's all worth it. I like to go to the three lions next door for a beer after I put my name in for a table at pinche. #moneytacos

    It's all good!

    Place has kinda gone downhill since opening. Tacos are bland tasting and cheese dips have turned to greese filled soup bowls. I used to love it, ate there at least once a week. Not anymore.

    Dan Veneski · February 25, 2013
  • Jaya J.

    Hope you get a good server, ours ruined our first visit and we might not ever come back! Also not kid friendly AT ALL.. the tacos werw delicious, the service and the attention to detail sucked.

    Jaya Johnson · February 23, 2013
  • Tia T.

    They won't allow to-go orders to sit down in the restaurant to eat. Strange.
