Calling anything "the best" is always subject to our own opinions, and is typically a tad controversial because everyone has their favorites, especially when it comes to food.

I was born and raised in the Denver, Colorado area and have had the privilege to experience some of the very best restaurants all across the state. While we'll focus on other foods throughout the summer, this week I wanted to focus on one of Colorado's most popular food destinations, Mexican restaurants. These are three of my absolute favorites.

This Local Colorado Mexican Restaurant Is One Of The Best

After opening in 2008, Las Palmeras Mexican Restaurant has become one of the area's very best locally-owned places to get delicious, and authentic Mexican food. We found this place by accident years ago while driving hungry down Main Street in Longmont and have been regulars ever since. The owner, the staff, the food, and the drinks are all top notch and that's what makes this one of Colorado's top choices for delicious Mexican food.

If you're a fan of good authentic Mexican food in Colorado, you've probably tried Las Delicias before. If not, you're going to have to rush into one of their four family-owned locations to experience it for yourself. Both the food and the staff are always top-notch. Here's a peek at what they were serving up last time we stopped in.

And for a bonus, if you're looking for a rad rooftop to enjoy some tacos and adult beverages, you've got to try this place...

Local Mexican Taco & Tequila Restaurant One Of The Best In Colorado

Dreamed up and created by three awesome local Colorado owners, Luna's Tacos & Tequilla in Downtown Greeley became so popular so quickly that they had to open a second location, and this new rooftop spot in Windsor is a fantastic addition to an already incredible local taco restaurant and bar.
