Tambien - Closed

250 Steele St. Denver, CO 80206 | Central Denver | 303-333-1763

Location Description:

Think Mezcal gone the way of The Jeffersons -- a humble Mexican-American taqueria that moved on up to Cherry Creek North. The decor here is south-of-the-border kitsch, the staff a veteran crew, and the menu a Colfax-meets-suburbia version of Mezcal's award-winning tacos, Chama's killer posole and tamales evidencing style and intelligence.
