La Loma Restaurant

2527 W. 26th Ave. Denver, CO 80211 | Northwest Denver | 303-433-8307

Location Description:

This Denver restaurant has grown with Denver, since its days in a little bungalow in the early '70s to its current incarnation, a landmark spot overlooking the city, known for its good green chile (the recipe of the late Savina Mendoza, the matriarch of one of the founding families) and enormous margaritas. Although a few items -- shrimp fajitas, for example -- have been added to the board since La Loma was founded, most of the menu has been virtually unchanged since 1973, and so serves up a real culinary history.
