Must-Try Tacos in Denver



It’s a good sign when you want to order everything you see on other people’s tables when walking into a restaurant. Fortunately, the prices at Dos Santos in Denver’s Uptown neighborhood allow you to do just that.

Tacos here are piled high with authentic ingredients for just $3-$5 a pop. My family fought over the Del Mar taco with beer-battered shrimp. Other must-try offerings include homemade chips seasoned with paprika, three types of guacamole, and eskites, discs of grilled corn on the cob slathered with habanero mayo, chili powder, and crumbled Cotija. In a word: excelente.

Other noteworthy taco offerings in Denver: Tacos Tequila Whiskey (AKA Pinche Tacos); Los Chingones; and Comida.
