Reader: Hard to Beat Denver's Simple, Mexican Street-Style Tacos
A taco at the now-closed Moontower Tacos.
The news that Moontower Tacos had closed last week struck some fans hard — but others aren't going to miss the place. Says Steve:

You're in luck: We're celebrating tacos in the print edition of Westword and on the web all week; watch for Mark Antonation's first piece later this morning.
