This is my go-to Mexican restaurant and I've probably eaten here over 200 times. The food is great and I like it hot. This is one place where you can order it hot (spicy) and it actually comes out hot (spicy). The burritos are the best you can find anywhere and the chili rellenos are great as well. The refried...

For a quick and super tasty breakfast burrito, this is the place! However, don't expect friendliness. I guess they are too busy to be cordial.

This is a local franchise that's been around for years. The green chili is like liquid gold. Absolutely addictive. You can buy it at local grocery stores. Don't go through Colorado without stopping at a Santiago's.

Breakfast burritos are SO good. Have tried the variety, and I now am sold on the plain potato and egg - combined with the green chile it is superb, but you can get chorizo, bacon, beef added - they are all really good. Perfect breakfast food for a road trip - you can eat & drive. Wish they opened a... More

Several locations around the Denver metro area and a few other places in Colorado, all locally owned-some are sit downs, others take out only. All have great green chile-the carnitas and bean burrito with chile inside-hot (not very hot) for $2.75 is the best deal in town, and available all day. Lots of people also swear by their breakfast burritos.

Have been twice. First time, take out breakfast burrito that was delicious and super cheap! Really busy little place, parking is a nightmare... You've been warned. Second time in, missed breakfast so ended up having to order lunch. Chips and salsa are mediocre and offered to you as if they're free (like at other Mexican food restaurants). Then you're charged...

I asked for vegetarian green chilie sauce they said "si, si" , but it is not. Their red sauce might be veg but the green definitely is not. They do make a good spicy green chilie sauce and they have very good burritos. The chilie rellanos are a bit on the oily side, but the side of beans is very... More

I love Santiago's and this location is probably one of my favorite. I always get the same thing...a burrito with their WONDERFUL chili, lettuce, tomato and cheese. The chips and salsa really is just OK...but when the burrito is so good...who cares.
