La Diabla Pozole y Mezcal

When La Diabla opened in the summer of 2021, it became the first pozoleria in Colorado. Chef/owner Jose Avila and his team nixtamalizes corn in-house for both the pozole — which is available in verde, blanco, rojo and vegan varieties — as well as the tortillas. Hit up happy hour for tacos and agave spirit-based drinks, and swing by on the weekends, when the restaurant often cooks meat outdoors on a spinning trompo.
