This is the first Rusty Taco in Colorado, but the third state where you can find the franchise. Since it was founded in 2010, the Dallas-based chain has expanded in north Texas, then also moved into the Minneapolis-St. Paul area.

As the name suggests, Rusty Taco focuses on tacos, as including breakfast tacos, which can be hard to come by in the Denver area.
