    Great happy hour! $5 specialty Margs and other drinks. Try the Tamayo margarita or the Sandia Tajin. Mahi mahi ceviche is also a steal for $4.

    Pepper infused Tequila is incredible, the chile Morita salsa is one of a kind, ask for the "agavero margarita" (casa nobles resposado, agavero liquor, citrus).enchiladas on the house if you CHECK IN.

    It is worth trying one of the out of the box margaritas such as the "Mercado" which blends serrano-infused tequila with passion fruit puree, citrus and a hibiscus rosemary foam.

    Food was excellent. I had the filet. Only complaint is that they don't accept Discover cards, which is ridiculous for a restaurant charging over $20 for entrees.

    Tamayo offers great dining in Denver's Larimer Square with fresh Mexican food flavors. Start with a prickly pear margarita or a michelada, and savor an order of the mole poblano for dinner. Me gusta! Read more
