Fast, well priced, attentive staff. Definitely a great place to stop if you are in a hurry ( which we were) as tables turn pretty fast. I had some pretty delicious tacos, meat, onions and fried potatoes. The salsa for the chips is great, I would have loved some salsa choices with my tacos too! Salsa verde my fav. They... More

I recently ate here due to the positive reviews. Pros: 1. Great salsa 2. Great chips (tasted homemade) Cons: 1. Tampiqueno was inedible. Tough, large strips of unseasoned meat. 2. Margarita had a distinctly manufactured taste (as from a mix) 3. Average service 4. Rice had very little flavor 5. Beans were marginal.

I highly recommend Patzcuaro--Some of the best Mexican food in Denver! If you love tacos or if you are looking for a great restaurant, Patzcuaro is a must.

This was not your typical Mexican restaurant. You will not find the normal fair here. If you are only familiar with the standard Mexican fair, you will be pleasantly surprised. While they do have tacos, burritos and fajitas on their menu, they were definitely not what we were used to. The food was plentiful and tasty!

Stopped in here for a snack and margarita because their patio looked really cute. We paid over $10 each for the margaritas, and they tasted watered-down and flavorless. We didn't even stay for a snack because the margaritas were so disappointing. Their food might be good, but I wasn't willing to take the risk.

We have been going here for 7 years and it's always good! Sometimes service can be slow when they get slammed, but they still take care of you. Very little employee turnover means that they will get to know you and provide consistent service and food preparation.

We only went here bc it was a 3 minute walk from our place, but it was really good. On a July afternoon, we sat on the patio and it was perfect outside. Colorado weather, love it. My wife and I split the 4 taco lunch w rice and beans. It was plenty of food. We both had a couple... More

We had never been to this restaurant and since it was established in 1978 we decided to try it out. The location is tough for parking as it is in a up and coming neighborhood and parking is at a premium. The place itself is great as it still has allot of the old neighborhood charm with a touch of... More

You have to start with the creamy, flavor-packed guacamole and then venture from there. From simple tostadas to carnitas, there is something for everyone. Can't decide? Order the combination, of course. Fun place for lunch. But we will be back for dinner and margaritas. Service was friendly and attentive.

This neighborhood gem is our go to place for Mexican food. The staff is friendly, music authentic, food consistently delicious. Some favorites are the chili rellenos, cheese enchiladas, caldo de res ( a beef stew) and the guacamole. Great outdoor patio.
