Was recommended this place by a work colleague, so decided to check it out for myself. The food was very good, with large portions. The salsa was a little hotter than I normally like, however the beer was ice cold so put out that fire nicely. Highly recommended.

Great hidden-away Mexican place. A well-known secret among Denver people. Nice wide variety of authentic food, plus fruit juice made in-house. Iffy neighborhood is only slight drawback, but part of the charm is kind of finding it in the middle of urban nowhere..

This is absolutley the BEST mexican food restaurant we have eaten at!! We have been going to Taqueria Patzcuaro for the last 20 years and have never had a bad experience with the food or the service. They have wonderful traditional mexican food as well as family friendly options. All of the servers speak Spanish, so it's always fun to give your own Spanish a try!

Like most of the other reviewers, my wife and I have been here many times and overall love this place. We used to live right by it - now we've moved but make the drive oh about once a month. If you've never been just go check it out. You won't regret it.

A few words of constructive criticism: The salsa is simply too hot - and I'm not afraid of heat either (I use hot sauce all the time). Pretty quickly you simply can't eat it, and nevermind if your meal is also spicy. Also the steak can be quite tough at times - I still get it because I love the sauce but it would be so much better with a tender steak. Overall these are not nearly enough to keep us away. :)

This is the best Mexican food in Denver, no question!! Quality ingredientes, great guac, great spicy salsa, great food! Go at lunch and get the special. $6 for a great plate of food and a beverage. You can't beat it. Their corn tortillas are awesome, the make the home made in the store. I work in the neighborhood and go at least twice a week. The staff is not so good about refilling your drinks, so you have to stay on them.

One of the greatest true Mexican restaurants ever. The food is fantastic and the portions are above average. My only complaint is that the food is so good that the waiters are the equilavent of the soup (It won't let me spell the N with the A with the Z with the I) on Seinfeld. I love the food and only return because of it. The waiters conveniently forget to refill the chips or drinks or whatever. BUT, dang, the food is soooooo good. I'm surprised that they still have the same people running the place. We've been going there since 1985 and not much has changed.

Pros: Cheap, Great Food, Spicy Salsa

Cons: Service needs to be improved but the food makes it worth it!

Went after reading Citysearch recommendations. The Albanil with a side of guac was so delicious. Good Margaritas--sour, but smooth. We had to order a cheese enchillada just to try--que rica! The salsa is excellent, too. And, the service was fabulous!!
One observation--the place is a little bright.

***Citysearch, please update that they do not take Amex or Discover.

This is the real deal! The food is delicious and the portions are of a good size as well. Everything is loaded with flavor and both cooked and seasoned to perfection. The margaritas were also quite tasty. I highly recommend this place as everything I have had there is wonderful!

If you have not ate here before, you are missing out. I have been to all of the top mexican resturants in the city, and I must say that none of the food compares to the Taqueria Patzcuaro. The authenticity us unmatched anywhere in town, and the service was great. The owner is usually there serving with the wait staff, and he makes sure everyone is enjoying there meal. I was very impressed the first time I ate there, and I have been going back every week for a year now! They recently added a liquor license, and have extremely goog margaritas!! Try it out. You too will be impressed.

I just moved to California and the thing I miss most about Denver is this little spot right here! Absolutley the best Mexican food I have ever had and my friends all agree. Try the Camarones al mojo de ajo, they're awesome, and a pineapple liquado! You won't eat anywhere else! Provecho!

(I wrote this a while back, and my review hasn't changed, but I wanted to update that I went last week 12/8/05, and there is a sign on the window that says they are applying for a liquor license. . . )
Two words: Tacos Albanil
(with a side of guac)
After living in Northern Mexico, this is the closest I can come to the real deal in Denver (and the meat here is better than the real deal).
The other things on the menu are good -- this is fabulous. I make my friends order this on their first time there.
I crave this restaurant between visits, and I go as often as I can. It isn't showy, and if you are into "fine dining", you probably won't like it, but if you are a foodie, don't miss this restaurant!

Pros: Fabulous Food, Authentic, Great Value

Wonderful authentic Mexican food that won't squeeze you're pocketbook. Two words TACOS ALBANIL!!! My favorite, it's marinated beef strips with fried potatos and jalapenos, squeeze a few lime wedges over the dish and that's it! Simple and delicious.
The service is great, even when busy. No liquor liscense. Highly recomended!!
The green chile is above average, not too spicy. I am addicted to this place, nuff said!

Taqueria Paztcuaro's serve delicious, authentic Mexican food at a very inexpensive price. I will have to agree with another reviewer and say that the Tacos Albanil are the best thing on the menu. If you can't take the heat of jalapenos, try Tacos Carbon. The strawberry liquado anc guacamole salad are delicious at well. The salsa is one of my top favorites in Denver... and I've been to many, many mexican restaurants around town. The waitstaff is always very friendly and inviting.

Still one of the best mexican restaurants in Denver. The food is great, always fresh and flavorable. The relleno burritos are my favorite.

The chips and salsa are great. It is spicy and what may surprise you is that the salsa is a green salsa. It is great to see a very good mexican place that is not afraid to serve good green salsa.

The burritos, chili rellenos, and enchiladas are far and away some of the very best in Denver.

If you like spicy you can get all you want here!

If not the best mexican in Denver (and its close), its definitely the best for the price. Excellent waitstaff and fabulous marinated meats in their entrees. Only drawbakc is the lack of a liqour license......

I saw this place on the Denver Gov. channel. I like the location! It was a cozy little place, but no alcohol. The portions were just right, but my expectations on flavor may have been too high. The warm chips and salsa are very good! I especially liked my metal Coke cup (an old milkshake tin). I probably won't go back, because it is quite a drive. If I lived nearby, it would be a cool hang out.

I just got back from this restaurant, and I can say for sure that it is a GREAT bargain of a mexican joint. However, putting it in the same category as Lola and Tamayo for top mexican spot in Denver is really not accurate. If you are looking for a quick, inexpensive and good tasting place for your mexican favorites, this is it. If it's excellence in mexican fare you're after, better to save this one for another night.

This restaurant is a small storefront building that looks like a dive. DON'T LET THAT FOOL YOU. This is as great restaurant for the entire family and is some of the best Mexican food you will find anywhere. The smothered burritos, chili rellenos, and (believe it or not) chili relleno burritos are fabulous. Be prepared. They accept CASH! No checks, no plastic. Also, they don't serve alcohol. How do I know? My wife taught at Denver North High School, 2 blocks away, for 4 years and it isn't uncommon to find the place full of teachers at lunch time.
