This small, family-friendly neighborhood cafe is warm and crowded during the day and crowded and loud after dark. The big kitchen is constantly at work banging out food that may not yet be ubiquitous in Denver, but certainly should be. The house specialty is huaraches: long, open-faced slabs of corn masa topped with whatever is close at hand -- steak, hot dogs, bacon, cactus, chicken, mushrooms. But Los Carboncitos also offers everything from tacos to killer tortas to real Mexican Coca-Cola, and an excellent range of fiery salsas.
