My son was born in Florida and got used to really good Cuban and Caribbean food. In Colorado, the options have been limited. Finding El Callejon made him (and I) super happy! Pupusas, fried plantains and rice? An excellent meal. It's a tiny space, and...More

This place is one of the smallest places to eat at in Golden. But one of my favorites! Their pupusas's are super tasty. Great quick & friendly service that is sure to help any craving.

Knew I wanted to come here then had to hurry when my wife got HANGRY! Service was so fast. Guacamole is the best I’ve had in months. Highly recommend the tamales. Portion was nice size and price was just right.

Great place to eat when the rest of downtown Golden is just packed. Colombian style food served quickly. They have a few places to sit inside too.

Everything on the menu is delicious and very reasonably priced. Pupusas are spectacular and the burritos are huge! They also have a very mild cheese quesadilla that my daughter enjoyed. We recommend this place to everyone we know that visits Golden.

El Callejon is a great option for lunch in Golden. It is a very small restaurant serving consistently good food. Besides enjoying the papusas and Columbian tamales, I really like supporting the couple who own this place. Situated next door to the popular and excellent...More

Accidentally found this place the last time we were in town and had to come back for the great food. We weren’t disappointed. The food was fast and very fresh. Well done!
