Denver >Taqueria Patzcuaro
money.. literally.. We love you Patzcuaro- you clown. order any tacos, especially carne asada.. i love the burrito, smothered of course. the salsa is mui perfecto. we love the service-- it's what you get and expect from a place like this. chips refilled? don't waste the room in your belly with more! they are good about sprite refills, and if it's busy give them a little direction. don't be shy, and speak Spanish if you know how. the margaritas are good, but the food is awesome and the price is right.
Used to live near it - now it's worth the drive.
Like most of the other reviewers, my wife and I have been here many times and overall love this place. We used to live right by it - now we've moved but make the drive oh about once a month. If you've never been just go check it out. You won't regret it.
A few words of constructive criticism: The salsa is simply too hot - and I'm not afraid of heat either (I use hot sauce all the time). Pretty quickly you simply can't eat it, and nevermind if your meal is also spicy. Also the steak can be quite tough at times - I still get it because I love the sauce but it would be so much better with a tender steak. Overall these are not nearly enough to keep us away. :)
Love this place. This is the best Mexican food in Denver, no question!! Quality ingredientes, great guac, great spicy salsa, great food! Go at lunch and get the special. $6 for a great plate of food and a beverage. You can't beat it. Their corn tortillas are awesome, the make the home made in the store. I work in the neighborhood and go at least twice a week. The staff is not so good about refilling your drinks, so you have to stay on them.
Best Mexican Food ever! But - the service can be bad - read the rest.. One of the greatest true Mexican restaurants ever. The food is fantastic and the portions are above average. My only complaint is that the food is so good that the waiters are the equilavent of the soup (It won't let me spell the N with the A with the Z with the I) on Seinfeld. I love the food and only return because of it. The waiters conveniently forget to refill the chips or drinks or whatever. BUT, dang, the food is soooooo good. I'm surprised that they still have the same people running the place. We've been going there since 1985 and not much has changed.
they DO NOT take amex or discover (we learned the hard way--they did accept our check, however).
Went after reading Citysearch recommendations. The Albanil with a side of guac was so delicious. Good Margaritas--sour, but smooth. We had to order a cheese enchillada just to try--que rica! The salsa is excellent, too. And, the service was fabulous!!
One observation--the place is a little bright.
***Citysearch, please update that they do not take Amex or Discover.
Best Mexican Food for a Great Price!. Great food for the price, super friendly service, and a great mom & pop restaurant atmosphere. The best Mexican food experience we've had in Denver!
Wonderful. This is the real deal! The food is delicious and the portions are of a good size as well. Everything is loaded with flavor and both cooked and seasoned to perfection. The margaritas were also quite tasty. I highly recommend this place as everything I have had there is wonderful!
This little-known, oft-overlooked taqueria serves some of Denver's best Mexican cuisine..
Pictures of famous revolutionaries line the walls of this small place just off Federal Street. Customers seat themselves, either at one of the wooden booths arranged in rows, or at one of the tables in the back. Meals start with complimentary chips and a delicious spicy salsa packed with cilantro and citrus. The menu includes tacos carbon, enchiladas smothered in spices and peppers and chuletas a la Mexicana: pork chops steeped in a spicy sauce.
By far the Best in town. If you have not ate here before, you are missing out. I have been to all of the top mexican resturants in the city, and I must say that none of the food compares to the Taqueria Patzcuaro. The authenticity us unmatched anywhere in town, and the service was great. The owner is usually there serving with the wait staff, and he makes sure everyone is enjoying there meal. I was very impressed the first time I ate there, and I have been going back every week for a year now! They recently added a liquor license, and have extremely goog margaritas!! Try it out. You too will be impressed.
I miss Taqueria Patzcuaro. I just moved to California and the thing I miss most about Denver is this little spot right here! Absolutley the best Mexican food I have ever had and my friends all agree. Try the Camarones al mojo de ajo, they're awesome, and a pineapple liquado! You won't eat anywhere else! Provecho!
