Rosa Linda's Mexican Cafe

2005 W. 33rd Ave. Denver, CO 80211 | Northwest Denver | 303-455-0608

Location Description:

For more than thirty years, Rosa Linda Aguirre and her family have been dishing up some of Denver's best Mexican food in the town's most family-friendly eatery. The kids pictured on the original menu are all grown -- although most continue to work in the restaurant -- and grandchildren now play in the very casual dining area. This place has always been warm, inviting and eclectic, and the food is just as warm and inviting: comforting red posole, a simple desebrado of shredded beef, homemade tamales and delicious nopalito tacos stuffed with sliced cactus petals.
