Not available on any combo are the taquito, a refreshingly light option with ground beef and pico de gallo heaped on a soft corn tortilla; the frito pie, an addictively messy mix of beef, cheddar and green chile; shredded chicken in any form; and the crispy, cinnamon-and-sugar-dusted fried tortillas known as cinnamon crisps. And while you can get extra lettuce for 69 cents and more onion for 65 cents, you can't get tomatoes on anything — except when mixed in pico. And there's no guac at all.

As for the lack of tables, don't sweat it. You can eat in your car — or if you're with your kids, you can buy them a yo-yo in the machine by the register and then head to the park across the street to eat and play, as two generations before you have done.

In New Mexico, red chile never contains meat.  It rarely does, even in Denver.

I love Curtis park creamery!! Grow up by there and still go back!


People are always asking me where they can get good New Mexico my opinion, the Chimayo Chile Brothers have the best chili! They also have some great free recipes on their website. You can find them here:

Maybe it's not sexy or innovative, but it's great hearing about places like this that have managed to survive for so long doing something so basic. It's also really cool to read about a place that's been in Denver this long that I have never even heard of. Thanks!

This place sounds uninteresting.  It seems to be as boring as church.
