Tacos Tequila Whiskey

Kevin Morrison started with Pinche Tacos, a truck that proved so popular he soon had a brick-and-mortar spot in Capitol Hill, Pinche Taqueria, which won our Best New Restaurant in the Best of Denver 2012. And in February 2013, he opened a second location in Highland and promptly changed both restaurants' names to Tacos Tequila Whiskey. "I'm so excited to be in this ’hood," Morrison said when he opened the north Denver spot. "It's a great fit for us to be on this side of town, and it's our ideal demographic." That demographic would be anyone who loves tacos, tequila and whiskey, all of which have proved a big draw at the original taqueria. Although the second location is larger, it has a similar look (rustic/industrial) and feel (communal/friendly), as well as the same menu. But the northwest Denver spot has three important additions: a much larger patio that will increase seating during warmer days, nachos and housemade liqueurs.
