While Illegal Pete's just celebrated its twentieth anniversary, another Denver taco spot, Moontower Tacos, has called it quits after two and a half years. Says Ruben:
They were just one of the good taco spots in Denver. I liked them because of their breakfast tacos, but found myself going to places like Pinche (or whatever they call themselves now) and La Calle more. La Calle is the top taco spot in Denver for my money.
Did you eat at Moontower? What's your favorite taco spot in Denver?
