This neighborhood restaurant is some of the best Mexican food in Denver. (Northwest Denver is the place to head for authentic Mexican food!) Anything with green chili is great! The burritos are great! The rice and beans can be a meal all on their own...More

We go to La Cocinita often even though it is a hole in the wall, but the food is consistently delicious, no matter what we order. The service is friendly and it feels comfortable. The place could be updated but the food is great!

I love this little place. A family-owned and operated restaurant between Sloan's Lake and Highlands. You come in and pick your own table, and if busy then wait for one to open up, order off their menu, and hot, fresh, delicious Mexican food arrives a...More

Great place for margaritas and fresh salsa. Fajitas are a must have along with the chili rellanos! Sometimes a wait but always worth it. Great family environment as well.
