Best Burrito Denver 2005 - El Taco de México
Readers' Choice: Chipotle
El Taco de México doesn't do much to attract customers. It doesn't take credit cards. It doesn't advertise. It doesn't serve liquor. It doesn't provide more than a scant few places to sit. And still the customers keep coming -- because the one thing this taquería does do is offer the best taste of real Mexico available north of la frontera, served by a crew of ladies tougher and more serious about their business than an entire culinary-school graduating class put together. One of our particular faves (although not one of the house's more authentic offerings) is the smothered chile-relleno burrito, which is downright addictive. You can't stop eating it no matter how full you are, and you can't stop yourself from ordering it again the next time you come in. And return you will.
