Agave Taco Bar
At Agave Taco Bar, a trendy taqueria in Denver, you can enjoy street-style tacos made with house-made corn tortillas – including a beef tongue variety – and topped with anything from sweet pineapple to savory grilled shrimp, or even smoky poblano peppers. For the ultimate experience, head to the patio and savor a margarita or one of the fresh, authentic agua fresca juices. Agave Taco Bar’s tacos are a fusion of Mexican and American flavors, with options like the Chicken Tinga Con Papas – a delectable combination of pulled chicken, chorizo, chipotle, potatoes, and crema.
La Loma Mexican Restaurant
La Loma has been serving classic Mexican dishes and margaritas for over three decades, becoming a beloved staple in Denver. It all began as a small, family-owned restaurant in a charming brick house just one block from our now-iconic location on 26th Ave in Denver. From that hilltop restaurant with stunning downtown views, Sonny, William, and Savina Mendoza curated a menu that celebrated the rich flavors of Southwest cuisine, featuring both Tex-Mex and traditional Mexican favorites. Guests quickly fell in love with our signature green chili, award-winning margaritas, and fresh tortillas, which they made right in the dining room. Today, La Loma has relocated to the heart of downtown, opposite the historic Brown Palace. Still, she has brought along the same beloved menu and many decorative touches that have kept our loyal customers returning for years.
Los Dos Portillos
In 2002, Jose Ramirez fulfilled his dream of opening the first Los Dos Potrillos location in Centennial after carefully saving up enough money. He only had $5.18 left in his bank account at its opening. Despite investing everything he had into his restaurant, Jose told his first customers that he would buy their food if they did not enjoy their meals.
Today, Los Dos Potrillos has expanded to four locations in Centennial, Littleton, Highlands Ranch, and Parker, providing customers in the South Metro area with genuine Mexican cuisine. Despite its growth, the restaurant never lost its intimate, family-friendly atmosphere, retaining its “hole-in-the-wall” charm thanks to years of hard work by Jose Ramirez and his family.
