    The tacos here are flat-out amazing, and the bar offerings don't lack either. Pinche also offers brunch tacos on weekends. [Eater 38 Member]

    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.

    Be forewarned that Monday lunch is the weekend brunch menu.

    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

    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!

    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.

    The Hacienda reposado sotol featured on happy hour for $3 is a really great repo for the price. Get the cream version with a order of churros and your taste buds will be singing the Macarena!

    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

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

  • 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

    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!!!

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

    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
