Early-morning, mid-afternoon or late-night Mexican munchies can be sated at Tacos Rapidos, where carne asada-smothered fries, tacos stuffed with beef, pork or tongue meat, and breakfast burritos with bacon, sausage, potatoes and eggs are served all day. With both Denver locations open 24/7, plus drive-thru service, a huge menu and low prices, Tacos Rapidos attracts night owls, early birds and everyone in between. The atmosphere is closer to greasy spoon than haute cuisine, but the green chiles are a safe medium-hot, the tortillas are thick, and the veggie burritos are fat and flavorful. Even the horchata is decent here. It's no wonder Westword readers voted Taco Rapidos the Best 24/7 Restaurant in 2011.
