When it comes to great Mexican food, Denverites have no shortage of options.Â Mexican restaurants in Denver are a dime a dozen, and there seems to be one on just about every city block.Â Emilio’s Superchef is one that you won’t want want to pass up.
Located on the corner of Logan and Colfax just East of the Denver Capitol building, Emilio’s was born as a mobile lunch truck, and is now all grown up.Â Emilio’s serves Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner, and serves up straight up, no-frills, Mexican cuisine.Â Their rock-bottom prices are some of the best in town too.
One of their more interesting (and delicious) menu items is their smothered fries. These beauties include a heaping portion of fresh warm fries, smothered in green chili.Â You can also add your choice of meats into this mountain of awesome for an even better taste.
If Emilio’s food is not enough to make a regular out of you, then perhaps their drink specials will.Â Happy hour lasts all the way up until close (around 9 PM), and offers 16 oz. margaritas for only $1.75.Â These are not your typical watered down margs in which you basically pay for straight up drink mix, no, these bad boys pack a punch that can leave you passed out on your tabletop if you are not careful.Â If margaritas aren’t your thing, they also offer a bucket of domestic beer (5 bottles) for $10.Â This is the perfect place to grab a cheap dinner as well as some cheap drinks before going out on the town.
Help support a great family owned restaurant and give Emilio’s a try the next time you are craving delicious Mexican food or cheap drinks.Â The food is good, the service is fast, the prices are cheap, and the portions are large – the 4 pillars of any great restaurant.Â Emilio’s also offers free delivery within a two mile radius, so now you have no excuses.
