Who wouldn't want breakfast cooked by a guy named Fred? The Fred in this case previously owned La Fuente (already known for its foil-wrapped favorites), but his namesake eatery has been turning out morning magic since late last summer in far north Denver. Take a load off and stay for a fork-and-knife breakfast burrito smothered in a gravy-like green chile and stuffed with just-right scrambled eggs, molten cheese, potatoes and a choice of chorizo, ham, beans, bacon or sausage. But get this: Fred's also doubles down with a breakfast burrito jammed with all the usual goodies — plus a whole tamale thrown in for good measure. That's a stroke of genius that lifts this tiny shop above the competition.
