Reader: Adelitas serves an amazingly good guac

Summertime, and the living is easy...but finding good guacamole is not. The tortas were not the only disappointing dish at Ay Caramba!, which Gretchen Kurtz reviewed last week; the guac was also bland and boring.

Who serves the best guacamole in town? One reader is on a hunt for that answer. See also: - Reader: Ay Caramba! needs to invest in some spice for its guac - Photos: A closer look at Ay Caramba! - Photos: Adelitas Cocina y Cantina is now cooking on South Broadway

Here's a suggestion from denver dave:

I am pretty much always disappointed when I order guacamole out because it so easy to make great guac at home BUT I have to say that the guac I had recently at Adelita's was amazingly good and a big portion of all guac not just three tablespoonfuls on a bunch of shredded lettuce.

Adelitas opened just last month at 1294 South Broadway; in addition to good guac, it has two happy hours every day, including one that runs from 10 p.m. to midnight.

Other suggestions for good guac?
