Offering chips may be an "American" thing, yet mexican restaurants (ALSO run by REAL mexicans right here in Denver CO America) have offered them for years--as in the past 40 years AT LEAST. This place is just too cheap to offer chips, since they want you to order more food and thus, spend more dinero.
Best Salsa - 2008
At Los Carboncitos, salsa is an elemental part of the meal, and every table is supplied with a caddy full of different varieties. No chips, though: That chips-and-salsa thing is an American invention, and Los Carboncitos is about as far as you can get from an American restaurant without updating your passport. This bright spot operates like a cool, urban Mexico City diner, offering comfort foods, tacos, huaraches and messy breakfast plates — all begging to be slathered with any one of the house's four custom salsas, ranging in heat and flavor from smoothly savory to napalm death.
