El Taco De Mexico

Perhaps no Mexican spot in the Mile High is as beloved as El Taco de Mexico, a no-frills joint that offers little in the way of ambience and even less in the way of service. But that hasn’t deterred crowds of customers (many of whom are hospitality-industry workers themselves), who have been flocking here since 1985 for burritos, huevos rancheros and chilaquiles all smothered in a deeply flavored, dark-greenish-brown chile verde. And in February 2020, this bright-yellow landmark in the middle of the city got national recognition when it was honored with an America's Classics Award by the James Beard Foundation — a well-deserved accolade, but one that hasn't changed a thing about El Tac.
