Colorado is lucky to have many homegrown Mexican chains -- but none have been as successful as Santiago's. And with good reason: This chain, which has over twenty locations (and counting), doesn't just offer great to-go breakfast burritos; it also serves up an absolutely addictive green chile. In mild, medium and hot, it's tasty enough at any heat level to slurp up on its own -- but it's just as good smothering one of the other items coming out of a Santiago's kitchen. Most of the outposts have modest dining areas, but you don't go to Santiago's for the decor. You go for the food, which is consistently good no matter which location you frequent.
