El Jakalito

2260 S. Quebec St. Denver, CO 80231 | Southeast Denver | 303-368-9941

Location Description:

El Jakalito Taqueria y Panaderia is a diminutive but bright restaurant and bakery space on South Quebec Street serving Mexican food and all manner of baked goods, with a full menu featuring tacos, gorditas, tostadas, tamales and tortas, and a salsa cart – where fiery red- and green-chile sauces sit alongside hot pickled radishes, carrots, cabbage and onions – good enough to be voted Denver’s best by Westword in 2011. El Jakalito also brings a touch of Salvadoran flavor to the mix with pupusas -- thick, handmade corn tortillas stuffed with cheese, meat, beans or any combination of the three -- that are popular with the locals.
