My family's favorite restaurant is the el Tapatio in Arvada. We came to this location hoping it would be similar. The food was good ( just not as good as the one in Arvada). The service was forgetful and very slow. It took forever to...More

Food was delicious. I was sad they didn't do anything once I told them we had just gotten married, especially since we were there between lunch and dinner and they weren't busy. They do try to make sure everything is great. I will definitely go...More

Free parking. Wasn't crowded, but we got here for a late lunch (2 pm). Quick service. Salsa was ok. Got a burrito and a quesadillas. Both were large, but just OK.

Outstanding Mexican food, great service, reasonably priced. The fajitas were among the best I have had. Outdoor patio dining with great views of the city and the Rockies.

I don't think this place gets the respect it deserves. The food is basic Midwest Mexican, but if you can sit on the patio, the views are great. The service is relaxed. We appreciate not being rushed. My wife and I are residents and appreciate...More

This is a restaurant that I return to for business as well as personal dining. The professionalism of Anton, and the gracious staff, make you want to return for more. The margaritas are excellent, and the food is so big I split a plate. Mary...More

Not the greatest Mexican food, but OK. They drown their food in sauce, even when you ask that they don't. Servers don't listen real well. Ok, but there are better places to go.
