La Cueva

9742 E. Colfax Ave. Aurora, CO 80010 | Aurora | 303-367-1422

Location Description:

After 35 years in the same location, Nabor and Norma Nuñez still make some of the tastiest Mexican home cooking in town. The green chile, spicy and addictive, contains all fresh ingredients; beef tacos come loaded with lean, shredded beef. And it's all even better washed down with one of the bar's 100-plus tequilas.
