forgetful cause they are busy?. we LOVE santiagos so much! however; when we order carnitas, hot, with sour cream & cheese...please remeber to put the hot chili in them and cheese and sour cream!! especially when we are paying 1$ extra for each!! this is happening more & more to the point I had to call & complain...& whats up with the jaking up of the prices allthe time! we love it but come on! maybe to muh chatter with all the people behid the counter (counted 9 today) is the reason for not adding stuff? prices..getting to be to much!
The green chile that is as hot as it is taste...... I have tried many of Denver's Mexican restaurants. This is by far the best, I mean THE BEST. You will not know what is good Mexican, till you try it. Everything on their menu is excellent and inexpensive. Just remember the hot green chile is HOT. Try half n half and save your taste buds or go for xtra hot and call 911(paramedics like it hot too)....
Best Burritos in Denver Green Chili. If you want a good dinner ,snack,lunch ..stop at Santiago's . My favorite order is the half and half beef burrito. You can order the green chili inside or smothered. At $2.50 a pop it is a bargain . One burrito will fill you up and I am a big guy. Denver would not be the same without Santiago's . I do not agree with some of the reviews that are saying that the servers are unfriendly or the food is greasy or too hot. If you do not like it hot,order mild,or half and half. If you come in with an attitude you will get treated accordingly. I have never had a problem with their food or the employees there. They have always been friendly and smiling and look forward to going there everytime I have a craving for one of their burritos.
Greatest Southwestern Food Around!!!!!!!!!!!. I went to a Santiago's in Eagle Point Oregon, not knowing anything about Santiago's and was very surprised to the autheniticity of the food! They serve sopapillas that you just do not see anymore! The green chile was something I have not had in a very long time, and coming from New Mexico I have looked for a good authentic place to eat, and have found it in Eagle Point Oregon! I was surprised to see that there are so many of these locations in Colorado, and not enough in Oregon! If you have not had a breakfast burrito from here, you have not had a breakfast burrito worth buying!!!!!! Keep it up, and don't change a thing!!!!
Horrible customer service and very dirty.. We have been to several locations, and they are all about the same. My husband and I were at the location on 180 W. 84th Ave, in Thornton last night. When we walked in I could tell it was dirty... there was a really unfresh body odor. I even suggested that we leave. Being tired and just wanting to eat and get on with it, we stayed. I ordered the chicken burrito with green chile.. half and half... when it came, it didn't look very good, I took a few bites and it had a strange taste and so I poked around a little and found a nice big beatle with a yellow belly and white sack... I have no idea what it really was but that the discription I can give. If anyone knows please advise...anyway, I showed the waiter and he immediatly took my plate and never came back to our table, I wasn't sure what to do and at this point my husband was grossed out and didn't really even eat his food... so we went up to the counter because the waiter wouldn't come back to our table. The people at the counter were rude and made us pay for my husbands un-eaten food and when I took her card and told her I was going to call someone about this situation she said "go ahead" really rudely and rolled her eyes and started speaking spanish to another guy. Anyway, never going there again~ and if I were you I wouldn't either!
tender meat, no heat.
Very very confused on the heat reputation of the green chile. This morning was my 5th or 6th visit to santiago's, and i always order it "hot." this morning i asked for "the hottest you got." there was simply no heat whatsoever. there never has been any heat. have they messed up my order every time, or is everyone insane? am i insane? what's going on????
as for the food, which no one mentions in their reviews, the meats are very very tender. perfectly done. there is virtually no seasoning such as cumin or garlic etc, so it's a simple, clean flavor. which is good. if you're looking for that hearty, complex, mexican flavor you won't find it here, but it is good quality, just not too exciting.
good prices. i'll go back, since denver doesn't have any mexican food better than this. which is a source of deep depression for me.
but what's up with the heat????????
Makes My Mouth Water. I was a native of Denver until the past year when I moved to Riverside California. I miss the great taste of Santiago's Mexican Hamburger. The hot spicy smothered, mouth watering food to which I could only handle the half and half. The indian taco's were a two day meal, because they gave you so much. The Mexican food out here in California does not have any flare to it. HOT is what Santiago's offers. I haven't found a resturant that even compares to the firery taste of the chile. Anyone coming out to California to bring me some Indian Taco's.
Greasy .. Bland and way too Salty.
I have seen the commercials lately touting that Santiagos has the Best Green Chili in Colorado, well in my opinion it was probably the worst I have ever tasted. I ordered the smothered Steak burrito and it was overpriced, extremely greasy, SALTY and in my opinion, not a good value for the price at all. I ordered the Mild Green chili and it was bland, and had no heat or flavor to it at all.
I love green chili and have sampled it from plenty of Mexican restuarants in Colorado and this place is on my list of been there, done that ... don't need to go there again.
Editorial Review by Dave Flomberg. Englewood restaurant is famous for atomically-charged green chile (available in a milder half-and-half version) and addictive, bargain-basement breakfast burritos.
a reason to move back to colorado. Thinking of an order of Huevos Rancheros - brings tears to my eyes. I miss my Boulder Santiagos. I miss my daily breakfast burrito and my cheerful friends - who saved me on many a hungover day. I return to Colorado as often as possible - sure I miss the friends I left behind - but more commonly - I think of the the green chile.......
