Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Don't let that "open" sign deceive you, because a peek through the windows at One Dollar Mexican, which owner Eric Alvarez just opened in September, tells a very different story.

Everything has been stripped from the modest room: the cash register, the refrigerators, the snow cone machine and the sign that once listed chile rellenos, tacos and tostadas, all priced at $1 per item. The place is definitely closed -- apparently the lines of bargain hunters weren't enough to keep it open.

So if you're hunting for cheap lunch in the area, you'll have to look elsewhere -- like Buchi Cafe Cubano, just two doors down.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
