Mexico City Restaurant & Lounge

Its menu boasts that Mexico City Restaurant & Lounge has been family-owned for forty years — and every year shows in the depth of flavor this modest kitchen gives its green chile (offered hot or mild), its fried tacos, its steak and breakfast burritos, even that squeeze bottle of salsa. Although this stretch of Larimer has become almost unrecognizable over the past decade, with costly loft projects going up on all sides, Mexico City remains a down-home cantina full of guaranteed good food and good times.
