Kevin Morrison has taken a taco cart with a bawdy name and turned it into a thriving taco business. Back in 2010, Morrison often had trouble getting licenses to set up street-food sales because of his business’s original name: Pinche Tacos. At one point, he used the name Tacos Borrachos for a second stand, just so he could get past the 16th Street Mall censors. On Halloween night of 2011, he launched the brick-and-mortar version of Pinche to big crowds and critical acclaim, earning our Best New Restaurant award that year. Shortly thereafter, Morrison officially changed the name to Tacos Tequila Whiskey, but the the chain's three Denver locations remain favorites with taco hunters looking for food as bold and audacious as that offered at the original cart.
