But when I stopped in today to poke around, the door was open, the joint was pumped up for business and there wasn't a fist fight, head slam or knuckle knockout anywhere in sight.
What I did see was a lengthy menu of ubiquitous Mexican standards (burritos, tostadas, enchiladas and flautas) coupled with some dishes I was much happier to spot -- items like menudo and adobada and tripe tacos, ceviche and coctel de camaron and sopa de albondigas and huevos con chorizo.
Speaking of huevos con chorizo, breakfast is served all day, every day at Las Brisa, and includes huevos rancheros, breakfast burritos, pancakes and French toast. The restaurant doesn't have a website, but if you want more information, call 303-282-4790.
Oh, and by the way, there's no liquor yet, but don't fret: A whole stockpile of alcoholic liquids is coming soon.
