The World’s Best Smothered Burrito Can Be Found Right Here In Denver

If there is one thing that those of us from Denver LOVE, it is a sloppy, yet oh-so delicious smothered burrito topped with a creamy green chile. While you are sure to hear conflicting opinions on just where to get the best burrito in the city, we happen to think it comes from this little-known Lincoln Park restaurant:

Housed inside the most unassuming of storefronts lies the surprising El Taco De Mexico; an authentic, family-owned restaurant that has been serving up its delicious fare since 1985. Located along the iconic Art District on Santa Fe, El Taco De Mexico features all of your favorites (enchiladas, tamales, and tacos) in addition to the pièce de résistance: their smothered burrito. Filled with an assortment of fresh ingredients ranging from beef to pork to chicken and topped with their secret green chile recipe, El Taco’s masterpiece burritos have received critical acclaim both locally (Westword named the joint one of Denver’s fifty most essential restaurants) and nationally (Andrew Zimmern of Bizarre Foods stated “This is what happens when someone’s mom cooks,”), and guarantee to provide a culinary experience that your taste buds will never forget.

El Taco de Mexico is located at 714 Santa Fe Dr in Denver and is open daily from 7 am to 10 pm. For more information, please visit El Taco’s website.
