Best Free Chips and Salsa Denver 2014 - Emilio's
Readers' Choice: Rio Grande Mexican Restaurant
Emilio's, a small greasy spoon perched on a much-trafficked corner of Colfax, specializes in no-frills Mexican fare for cheap -- or, in the case of its housemade chips and salsa, free. Servers deliver a basket of the thick, crunchy, salty tortilla triangles to every table, plunking it down alongside tomato salsa tinged with spice. Only the first basket comes free, but that's okay: You're going to want to save room for a plate of potato tacos, huevos rancheros or other food specials. And with $1.75 margaritas Thursday through Saturday nights, you can count on a dinner that's not only wonderfully greasy, but a wonderful bargain, to boot.
