This place can get really busy around lunch time, but it is for a good reason. I really recommend the stuffed sopapillas or chile rellenos.

We've gone to Santiago's for many years and have been to a number of different ones here in Colorado. I've had a lot of their items, but the Indian Taco is my favorite. I made a to-go order, got home, and it was just nasty. It was actually covered with rice! and the rice wasn't any good, either. It had... More

Waste of money and time. Breakfast burritos wonderful, maybe a burrito to go but other than that disgusting! Kid's french fries were just flimsy grease fries! Worst menudo ever, nothing but flavored grease water.

Joe the manager was extremely aggressive over the phone when I was attempting to secure a refund for 10 burritos I was not given. I called a day in advance to pick up 20 burritos for $48 for my office. I was only given a half an order. Upon realizing this mistake, I called. The initial individual I spoke with... More

Once again Denver has let me down. Everyone loves this place. Had it catered to my work a few times. I have to say that Denver needs a new palate. No flavor. Nothing exciting and the only thing I ever noticed about the famous green chili is it's so hot you can't taste anything else. Maybe that's how they make... More

I have been eating Santiago's breakfast burritos and the "hot" version of the green child since they opened the first one in Brighton and the old Sonic in the late 80's. No one has green chile anywhere close to this stuff and the thickened porridge versions served downtown that keep getting good reviews (you know, that gruel at the hamburger... More

Just went to Santiago's on 84th. It's very good food and service. Usually I go to the 104th drive thru location but eating there their food is better but also I say that this food tastes better than most mexican restaurants. I highly recommend their breakfast burritos with light green chile or any of their chiarrones burritos. Oh those must... More

Had the chile rellanos. They were crispy with a great tasting white cheese in them and served with rice and beans. I had my choice of mild, med, or hot green chile. I got the medium and it was great! Place was really busy at 11:30 and the staff were fast and friendly. We sat down however they were doing... More

What can I say? This is the place I've been looking for a long time. I love Santiago's. The food is really good and cheap. I recommend the breakfast burritos with half and half green chile.
