El Taco de Mexico Restaurant Review

: This perpetually packed, lemon-hued taqueria turns out what many locals consider to be the most authentic south-of-the-border eats in Denver. Soft corn tacos, griddled on the flattop and topped with meats, cilantro, onions and a swipe of salsa, are rustic and loaded with flavor. Folded cheese enchiladas, along with plate-spanning burritos busting at the seams with meats like barbacoa, asada and carnitas, arrive draped with a bracing jalapeño green chile that packs a punch. Sit elbow-to-elbow at the counter, or in one of the few booths parked along the window, to feast on a wide array of Mexican staples, including brains, tongue and other organ meats, all prepared in a spotlessly clean exhibition kitchen that showcases an all-female staff. As an added bonus, prices are easy on the wallet --- and there's a lot of bang for your buck.
