  • This place kills it! Be prepared for abit of a wait, but don't worry it's all worth it. I like to go to the three lions next door for a beer after I put my name in for a table at pinche. #moneytacos

  • Every taco I've tried so far has been delicious. The carnitas and asada are spiced just right with tender juicy meat. The Paloma was refreshing and a perfect pairing.

  • This sneaky joint can't to post their name on the sign, so look for the star on York St near Colfax. They're probably also trying to keep their $ 3 happy hour specials under wraps. Best tacos ever !!!

  • Margarita is exceptional! Form the food in order I like it: lengua - 1st place, pollo a la crema and pescado - 2nd place, carnitas, camaron a la parilla and pork belly "agridulce" - 3rd place.

  • Queso with chorizo ​​was a disgrace- too much butter / grease not enough flavor. The Asada tacos had ZERO seasoning and bite of disappointment. But the shrimp and scallop and the surf n turf were def best

  • The tacos here are flat-out amazing, and the bar offerings don't lack either. Pinche also offers brunch tacos on weekends. [Eater 38 members]

  • Always awesome food. Best queso ever! Tonight, there was a wait and the table we were in line for took an hour to get up, so the manager comped our apps and drinks. Smart, courteous business!

  • His must-have is the $ 3.50 "agridulce" taco, an inspired combination of sweet-and-sour braised pork belly, candied garlic, and cabbage and cilantro slaw in a corn tortilla. Learn more

  • As with the truck, the fare in these restaurants focuses on street tacos - but at the truck, you donâ € ™ t get the bonus of tequila and whiskey. Learn more

  • If you've never been, then HURRY THE HELL UP! Honestly haven't had a single disappointing moment during multiple visits. We've had every item on the menu, and they all deliver! AMAZING MARGS!

  • The tacos are incredible. The octopus and soft-shell crab tacos are fantastic when they have them. The agave chicken taco is one of my favorites.

  • KIDS TIP: Food here rocks but the hollandaise has a kick so ask for it on the side or leave off. The mexican pancakes (crepes w / dulce de leche) are super NOMMY!

  • Tacos are small yet pack significant punch in taste and flavor. Their old fashioned isn't too shabby either.

  • The Hacienda reposado sotol featured on happy hour for $ 3 is a really great repo for the price. Get the cream version with an order of churros and your taste buds will be singing the Macarena!

  • With all the taco joints in town, you wouldn't think it was possible to come up with a new, better way to do one. Learn more

  • Food is good ... really good. Service is pretty hit or miss. Owner is super nice, but maybe a little in over his head. Tonight it was very miss. If you didn't know the bartender, forget-about-it.

  • Small interior with amazing taco selection! The pork belly is to die for!

  • The best place for tacos in Denver ... May need to wait awhile, but worth it. Margaritas or Palomas make the wait a bit easier!

  • Queso la plancha, barbacoa, belly, lemonade, carnitas, asada. Ok the whole menu is delicious !! A / C broken which sucks but outside is nice

  • The slew Pinche's tacos leans heavy on the sea, with a "Surf-n-Turf" stuffed with fried rock shrimp and beef tongue. Learn more

  • Hope you get a good server, ours ruined our first visit and we might not ever come back! Also not kid friendly AT ALL .. the tacos were delicious, the service and the attention to detail sucked.

  • The "House Casa Crib Coin Margarita" uses Exotico Blanco Tequila, cointreau, house simple syrup, and lime - complete with a salted rim and plenty of attitude.

  • Pork belly, grilled octopus, and fish tacos with chimichurri were delicious!

  • Lunch, brunch - I haven't had a bad meal to date. Tey the margs too :)

  • Awesome tacos! Specialty drinks are also fantastic. We WILL be back, and often.

  • Incredible whiskey selection in the corner of this bar. Surprising spot for pappy, rip van winkle, and others.

  • Damn this place has slammin tacos! Love the happy hour margaritas !!! Will return!

  • The carnitas, the pork belly, the sloppy joses ... I guess just get everything.

  • Place has kinda gone downhill since opening. Tacos are bland tasting and cheese dips have turned to greese filled soup bowls. I used to love it, ate there at least once a week. Not anymore.

  • My favorite tacos here are the short rib and the beef tongue!

  • So awesome !! Recommend the pinche Paloma and the pork belly taco .... 20 yr pappy van winkle to finish the meal !!!!

  • Have the lengua tacos. Ask the server for recommendations too.

  • Everything here is AMAZING just pick something you won't be disappointed!

  • Some of the best tacos in Denver. Highly recommended.

  • My favorite is the poblano and cojita cheese taco

  • Get the shrimp and scallop it will probably change your life and get you pregnant

  • Went here for the first time. I highly recommend! Simple and tasty!

  • I prefer the Highlands location. This location is extremely claustrophobic and parking is even worse! Was over it within 10 minutes of seating

  • Cordero, carnitas, asada, guacamole. Micheladas !!! Precios razonables

  • The food was awesome, but the waitstaff / female bartender were total assholes and / or bitches !! I'd eat the food again but definitely take it to go! Even my 9 year old noticed.Total disappointment :(

  • The wait and lack of seating management far out way the very good food

  • It's all about the tacos and margs ... best in Denver ✌️

  • It's all about the tacos and margs ... best in Denver✌️
