Wow, so many choices for both marguerites and tacos. Sayulita mart was delicious. Oaxacan way way too strong and hard to drink. LAMB tacos, OMG, the best thing we had all day, seriously forget the tortilla, just give me a bowl. Chips were great and...More

Machete is my go-to place- especially when I'm in the mood for Mexican. Living in Denver, I have tried my fair share of Mexican places, but this one always takes the cake. They have a variety of unique tacos to choose from, really tasty salsas...More
