Jack-n-Grill

2524 Federal Blvd. Denver, CO 80211 | Northwest Denver | 303-964-9544

Location Description:

Why is this stuff so good? Because chile man Jack Martinez knows what his customers want. First, there's the good, honest, New Mexico-style green chile he's been dishing up since his days as a chile importer. Then there's the succulent shrimp, juicy chicken and exceptionally potent shredded beef, all served on flat corn tortillas with some pico de gallo, cheese and a side of lime for the best tacos in town. Try the vaquero tacos (available in chicken or beef) with barbecue sauce and cooling sour cream served on a flour tortilla, and you will be hooked.
