Hacienda Colorado

Hacienda Colorado is a homegrown chain, one that’s coined the term “Mountain Mex” for its food. So while you’ll find traditional Mexican dishes on the menu, they’ve all been given a local twist – and you may find that your tacos and burritos have been stuffed with local ingredients, from marinated meats to fresh produce. The atmosphere is more Mountain than Mex, with a lodge feel (complete with fireplace) and a big outdoor patio. But once you take a sip of one of the 120 tequilas stocked by the bar – or try one of the specialty margs, including a few frozen varieties – you’ll quickly be transported south of the border.
