We have been to Los Chingones 4 times. The tacos are passable but small, street size and lots of Yucatan vinegary onions. Disclaimer: I'm from Texas so I tend to rate CO tacos on the low side. Tamales were ok. The enchilada was very good. Overall I like the small portion size but not for everyone. Margarita was good. Their ceviche is some of the most flavorful I have found state side. The salsa is fresh and fiery with several options. Delicious rattlesnake chorizo queso. (Why is queso so expensive in CO? It's college food cheap in TX! Maybe we have more rattlesnakes!) Chicken leg, shrimp, and steak tacos were all good (but can get bigger ones and just as tasty for less $ at Torchy's). Fun, lively sports bar atmosphere and location is great.

Met some wine friends here while working in Denver and thoroughly enjoyed the open air seating, Margaritas and the food!

We met for a birthday celebration and started with margs and guac. The guac was great and the margaritas were good, but pricey. Enjoyed the steak enchiladas and the shrimp tacos. Felt that the prices were pretty high for the very small portions served. Katie was our waitress and she was totally terrific, fun, attentive and informed. We won't rush back though as the prices were high and the food good but not exceptional.

I pride myself on my Denver taco knowledge, and this is one of the best around. Taking a modern, somewhat wild approach to tacos and Mexican cuisine in general, Los Chingones delivers a unique, fun, and delicious dining experience. The rotating menu makes return trips desirable, and frankly more probable. A great date spot and place to catch up with friends alike. While the tacos are the Crown Jewel of this establishment, there are other unlikely dishes which are not to be missed: the oysters are always excellent in stark contrast to what one would assume given the geographic location. The ceviche is excellent, and the booze is always a awesome with something for everyone despite a mainly tequila bar. Highly recommend.

I love this restaurant! It is in a great location in the trendy and up-and-coming RiNo district. I have been here for Brunch, Lunch, and Dinner - each time an exceptional meal. The breakfast tacos are really good for brunch! Also, don't forget to try their Tang inspired drinks - either a mimosa or margarita. This place offers a modern and unique spin on Mexican food - so don't be expecting "traditional" fare. Here's a tip: sit out on the roof top deck or on the sidewalk patio during nice weather. I would highly recommend this restaurant and will go back!
