Tacos Rapidos (Denver)


~ 2800 W. Evans Ave. / +1 303-935-0453 |
Denver, Colorado ~

I have yet to try this drive-thru Denver phenomena, but it appears very popular in the city. They now have two locations. I’ve done deliveries for them. They offer early morning, all day, and late-night Mexican food 24/7 for the Denver crowd. Very popular with late night after clubbing crowds, the restaurant seems to be taking off. They have walk-in and drive-thru services, a large menu, and low prices. In 2011, Westword readers voted it the best 24/7 Restaurant.

Burritos & Blues (Dublin)

Burritos and Blues
* 2 Wexford street * 2 Dublin, Ireland * http://burritos.ie/ * http://www.facebook.com/pages/Burritos-and-Blues/ * Phone +353 14254022 *

As a recent transplant to Dublin, Ireland from America’s Southwest, one of the culinary facets i miss the most from the move is the lack of good Mexican food. But through my wanderings I’ve stumbled upon the trendy explosion of “Burrito bars” in Dublin. Stumbling upon my currently favorite … Little Ass Burrito in Rathgar, we decided to wander about and explore some of the other bars. Next stop was “Burritos & Blues” which was quite tasty, affordable, and entertaining. They indeed had a version of my current favorite addiction of a sweet potato vegetarian burrito that has me quite fixated with Little Ass Burrito. Though so far, Burritos & Blues would be my 2nd favorite burrito bar in the city sofar and their sweet potato burrito is quite tasty. Burritos and Blues has a bit more seating and restaurant flavor, but a “Subway-like” presentation of “fixing your own burrito” as you stand in line and tell them what ingredients and fixin’s you want in your tortilla wrap of goodness. Music is quite good and bouncy, Blues obviously the predominant flavor available, and a wall of posters of events around town to give the nightlife seeker some ideas of where to go. The spicy sauce however is a wallup … best for the Mexican hot conneuseur. Rating: 4.5 stars out of 5. [rating:4.5] ~ Reviewed by Leaf McGowan

A nice little Mexican Cantina on the outskirts of Woodland Park. The enchiladas were good but not the best I’ve had. Friendly service and good family ambiance. Good little Road stop as heading down Highway 24 into the mountain wilderness. Rating: 3 stars out of 5.

Three Margarita’s (Fountain, CO)

Apparently Three Margarita’s is a chain, though you wouldn’t really guess that visiting the establishment. They made accomodations for our team of 13 who came and dined with them on the evening of the 9th. Friendly service, great food, and good atmosphere. Definitely could feel and smell the delicious Mexican food they make in the establishment when you walk in. Great free chips and dip all around the table with constant refills. I was filled up just on those by the time the food arrived. Margarita’s are good there too. Got the Mango Margarita, which hit the spot to the day. Apparently they have alot of music in the establishment with live mariachi bands a common occurence from 6-9 on thursdays. They boast of having over 100 kinds of tequila. For dinner I tried the Seafood Chimichanga, a Chimi from the coast, rolled fried flour tortilla with prawns, crab, sauteed vegetables, scallops and sour cream covered with a delicious creamy sauce. It was as delicious as it sounds, but much smaller proportions than expected especially when looking at everyone else’s enormous plates. Rating: 4 stars out of 5.
