Tequila’s 

 

Rio

Where: 17635 S Golden Rd Golden, CO 80401

Cost: $

What: A Mexican restaurant in a renovated Taco Bell. Not fancy, not pretentious — simply delicious Mexican food. The staff are such nice people and the food comes out on plates the size of Christmas cookie platters. And yet somehow disappears. The serve food with traditional salsa, chips and a bowl of pickled cabbage that sounds strange but actually adds a nice tang to the otherwise salty meal.

And yes, longtime readers and family — you’ll be surprised to hear the margaritas aren’t bad either. I may have introduced this restaurant to just about every visitor:

Tequila's

 

Tequilas

And celebrated #32 here earlier this year. I love me some Mexican food.

Recommendation: the carnita pork platter, house margarita and a hello to the manager Alejandro. He’s a sweetheart. (But be careful. He is far too generous with the tequila!)

  1. You’re making me mouth watering here………. Nice to see you’re settling more and more comfortably there….

  2. Seriously? Tequilas? All the great Mexican in this city and you pick that crap hole chain? And FYI: renovated Dairy Queen, not Taco Bell. You can tell SOMEONE isn’t a native and hasn’t been here long making a mistake like that.
