El Tejado

2651 S. Broadway Denver, CO 80210 | South Denver | 303-722-3987

Location Description:

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. The atmosphere is casual, the service fast. Play "La Bamba" again!
