Always on Denver’s list of must-hit bars in the summer, Los Chingones is a double win. With a rooftop bar and some of the best Mexican food in the city, the restaurant is sure to cool you down and give you some great food while it's at it!
Los Chingones is run by Chef Troy Guard, and is, as he puts it, his take on "badass" Mexican. The food is fantastic, and it has an atmosphere to match. Colorful walls match the vibrant dishes, and the warm service only heightens the welcoming environment. The menu includes classic dishes like enchiladas, burritos, and quesadillas, but do not miss their tacos at $4.50 to $5 each. Flavors range from Mexican Cotija, Jalapeño Popper, Carne Asada, and even Alligator.
Of course, there are the drinks. Happy Hour runs Monday through Friday from 3 PM to 6 PM, and Los Chingones offers guests a tempting $5 menu. Pick from favorites such as street tacos, street corn, the daily quesadilla, or the crispy calamari lettuce wraps. Margaritas and the cocktail of the day are also only $5. Come after Happy Hour and you have the option to make your own margarita!
The restaurant is open every day at 11:30 A.M. and stays open until 10 PM Mondays through Thursdays, 11 PM Fridays and Saturdays, and 9 PM on Sundays.
