I have eaten at many Mexican food restaurants throughout the Denver Metro Area, and this place has the best tacos that I have found yet.


The place isn't the same. The food isn't the same. It's because of the people (customers). Now they're clientele. Friends of friends who got told about this cool little place to e...

I USED to love this place when I worked 3/22/2012

I USED to love this place when I worked downtown... Loved the fried steak tacos w/ avocado.. I went back recently and my opinion has totally changed.. The tacos were not as good as they were before , they charged me $1 for 1 avocado slice, the beans and rice were awful.. The beans had an out of the can taste. The whole meal tasted very cheap.. The service sucks as well.. The waitress was cool at first then got a huge attitude when I had a question about a .60 cent discrepancy on my bill the manager took it upon himself to come to my table 3 times and argue about. The service was always horrible and now the food matches.. Not worth the trip downtown and there are so many other Mexicans restaurants that are way better than this place in Denver like Las Delicias who appreciate their customers and have quality food for a reasonable price. more

average at best 12/21/2010

The beef burrito and mexican hamburger were both below average. There was maybe 3 slivers of shredded lettuce and 2 little diced tomato pieces on the side of my burrito, the green chili was watery and tasteless and the beef tasted like the grill had not been cleaned in a while. The shredded cheese on top of the burrito was good. Too bad because it's in such a great historical building. more

Great Tacos... authenticity not so much 7/14/2010

With a name like Mexico City, I first expected ""mexico city"" style tacos (like from a lonchera, otherwise known as a taco truck) definitely not the fried tacos they serve. However, their fried chicken tacos are sooo good! I am definitely a fan but have to give people a disclaimer about the name and the food they offer. The rest of their menu is more of your typical ""mexican-american"" food. They finally have a website up - but its missing the hours of operation... which is always tricky because if you don't go early you'll find that their doors are closed. So it might be good to call before you go, or just count on going for lunch. I will definitely go back for the tacos! :) Pros: Best Fried Tacos Cons: The name tricks you more

Most authethic and tasty Mexican food in Denver 7/23/2008

I first want to say the comment made that the food tasted like it was out of a can was totally wrong. I have been going to the Mexico City restaurant for 15 years and have seen the changes thru the years. \r some people have a problem with change but I think the restaurant has kept up with the new and improving neighborhood and has never been better. The food is the best in town and the most authentic Mexican Food you can find in Denver. Pros: Must have Steak tacos, margaritas Cons: may have to wait if busy but well worth it more

I think they got their meat from the Purina factory 6/11/2008

When I was done eating it felt like I had swallowed a whole soppy wet pig that was fighting to get back out. After two tacos I started moaning like I was about to give berth. These tacos were greasy and the meat tasted like it came out of a can. The rice and beans were bland making them far more enjoyable than any part of my grease soaked tacos.\r \r My friends love this place but I will not be back. more

Yummy Tacos!! 6/5/2007

The steak tacos are by far the best I've ever had. My family and I go here pretty regularly and haven't noticed any service issues like the ones mentioned in other reviews. It's a hole-in-the-wall kind of atmosphere and the waitstaff doesn't kiss your butt like some of the more trendy restaurants downtown but I really prefer to be left alone when I'm eating so I don't care. The prices are low and the food is great - that's all that matters. Pros: Tacos!! Cons: Some people might not love the decor more

Best Tacos you can get outside of your own house! 5/10/2007

I love this place! My dad took me to this place for the first time about 5 years ago, he has been going there forever. My fiance and I go every sunday, and I haven't ever had a bad experience. The staff treats us like we have been long time friends. The food is great and authentic! The only other place I have had tacos this great is when my own mother makes them. I am very picky when it comes to hispanic food and I love this place! more

Excellent Green Chili - Lame Service 6/22/2006

I used to really love this place, but it's changed. I agree with the other person's post about the clientele. I also don't enjoy being treated as if they are doing me the favor. The owner/mgr. is snotty, the staff less than happy. I watch them get yelled at countless times by the owner. Last time I went, they told me to sit with these other strangers. I waited 30 min. for tacos!!! This last and final time I went there, I ordered hot green chili and got the mild. They can't seem to do anything right anymore. It's really just not worth it. I guess I'll have to make my own green chili. Only go if you are ready to be treated shabbily and wait forever. Pros: Excellent Green Chili, Best Chix Tacos in Town! Cons: Crappy Service, Snotty Manager, Incorrect Food Brought to You more

Long Time Fan 5/29/2006

I have been going to Mexico City for many many years. While agree with one of the reviewers that it isn't the same as it once was, it still has the best tacos and chicharrones in Denver. Pros: Tacos are the Bomb, Nice Staff Cons: Crowded, Hours more

Steak tacos!!! 10/2/2004

I Miss Willie 1/10/2003

The place isn't the same. The food isn't the same. It's because of the people (customers). Now they're clientele. Friends of friends who got told about this cool little place to eat. The ""Juarez"", S&K Market, Doi's Pharmacy, the S.K.Y., all passed (if you know than you know). Miss you Willie and Long Live Ed (sorry man but I'll never tell). It's good enough for the gringos (no offense to anybody) but it ain't what it was. Peace out. Pros: izzalright, cerveza, less drunks Cons: izzalright, money, less drunks more
