Although the Sunday mariachi brunches are the big draw, any day is a good day to sample the Mexican mainstays at El Tejado. The green chile is thick, gravy-like and a true Colorado creation, but everything else on this menu is authentically south of the border, from the big seafood cocktails to the carne asada to the caldo de res. The atmosphere is casual, the service fast, and if you ask nicely, the band just might play "La Bamba" again.
