Denver >Taqueria Patzcuaro
My Favorite Place in Denver.
(I wrote this a while back, and my review hasn't changed, but I wanted to update that I went last week 12/8/05, and there is a sign on the window that says they are applying for a liquor license. . . )
Two words: Tacos Albanil
(with a side of guac)
After living in Northern Mexico, this is the closest I can come to the real deal in Denver (and the meat here is better than the real deal).
The other things on the menu are good -- this is fabulous. I make my friends order this on their first time there.
I crave this restaurant between visits, and I go as often as I can. It isn't showy, and if you are into "fine dining", you probably won't like it, but if you are a foodie, don't miss this restaurant!

Wonderful authentic Mexican food that won't squeeze you're pocketbook. Two words TACOS ALBANIL!!! My favorite, it's marinated beef strips with fried potatos and jalapenos, squeeze a few lime wedges over the dish and that's it! Simple and delicious.
The service is great, even when busy. No liquor liscense. Highly recomended!!
The green chile is above average, not too spicy. I am addicted to this place, nuff said!
One of the Best Authentic Mexican Restaurants. Taqueria Paztcuaro's serve delicious, authentic Mexican food at a very inexpensive price. I will have to agree with another reviewer and say that the Tacos Albanil are the best thing on the menu. If you can't take the heat of jalapenos, try Tacos Carbon. The strawberry liquado anc guacamole salad are delicious at well. The salsa is one of my top favorites in Denver... and I've been to many, many mexican restaurants around town. The waitstaff is always very friendly and inviting.
User review by underhill66. Still one of the best mexican restaurants in Denver. The food is great, always fresh and flavorable. The relleno burritos are my favorite.
Best Mexican Food In Town!. I just love Patzcuaro. Excellent owners who strive to make you happy!
Best Mexican in Denver & Inexpensive too.
The chips and salsa are great. It is spicy and what may surprise you is that the salsa is a green salsa. It is great to see a very good mexican place that is not afraid to serve good green salsa.
The burritos, chili rellenos, and enchiladas are far and away some of the very best in Denver.
If you like spicy you can get all you want here!
Fabulous Lunch and Dinner. If not the best mexican in Denver (and its close), its definitely the best for the price. Excellent waitstaff and fabulous marinated meats in their entrees. Only drawbakc is the lack of a liqour license......
Maybe I thought.... I saw this place on the Denver Gov. channel. I like the location! It was a cozy little place, but no alcohol. The portions were just right, but my expectations on flavor may have been too high. The warm chips and salsa are very good! I especially liked my metal Coke cup (an old milkshake tin). I probably won't go back, because it is quite a drive. If I lived nearby, it would be a cool hang out.
Very good, but not best of Denver. I just got back from this restaurant, and I can say for sure that it is a GREAT bargain of a mexican joint. However, putting it in the same category as Lola and Tamayo for top mexican spot in Denver is really not accurate. If you are looking for a quick, inexpensive and good tasting place for your mexican favorites, this is it. If it's excellence in mexican fare you're after, better to save this one for another night.
You'd never believe it. This restaurant is a small storefront building that looks like a dive. DON'T LET THAT FOOL YOU. This is as great restaurant for the entire family and is some of the best Mexican food you will find anywhere. The smothered burritos, chili rellenos, and (believe it or not) chili relleno burritos are fabulous. Be prepared. They accept CASH! No checks, no plastic. Also, they don't serve alcohol. How do I know? My wife taught at Denver North High School, 2 blocks away, for 4 years and it isn't uncommon to find the place full of teachers at lunch time.
