I just stopped by La Fiesta for lunch, as people have been stopping by the Mexican restaurant at 2340 Champa Street since 1964, when the Herrera family turned an old Safeway into a Denver institution. (That's the original menu above.)
Which got me wondering: Is there a Mexican restaurant in town that's been in business longer than 46 years?

Come up with an older one, and I'll buy you a Calhoun Special (chile relleno and chicken enchilada) at La Fiesta.
