Moontower Tacos

609 Grant St. Denver, CO 80203 | Central Denver | 303-832-1107

Location Description:

Austin natives will flock to Moontower like moths to a flame based on the name alone, which refers to the historic light towers that watch over the Texas state capitol. And once in the door, they'll love Austin transplant Brent Thrash's renditions of migas tacos stuffed with scrambled eggs, avocado, strips of fried tortilla and three-cheese queso. More adventurous Texans can say howdy to the Doggfather: chicken and waffles wrapped in a tortilla and served with syrup, candied jalapeño and apple butter.
