This place is consistent with flavorful hearty meals at a great price. Anytime of day you will find this buzzing with hard working locals who know where to find the best deal on great food. I especially love the green chile on anything. My favorite is the Mexican Breakfast menu items. The best smothered breakfast burritos!

Cochino Taco

Reviewed By Denverdebby1

I love taco bars and have frequented and reviewed many in the Denver Metro area. This is by far the best and my favorite!First of all friendly, welcoming staff. Never had a bad experience here. Clean, cute, nice dining area and bar. Not overdone in Mexican theme. Wood and tile. A few pigs. Patio dining with heaters if needed. Patio nearly always open, even in winter. Diverse crowd in age and ethnicity. Just a place where everyone can be comfortable.Great starters, the queso is delishious. Wide bar offerings from beer to craft cocktails.Extensive menu of tacos (a full page) divided into beef, pork, chicken, seafood and vegetarian tacos. I have tried all four of the vegetarian offerings and all were tasty. Also, salads, burger and other offerings -but I have not tried. The tacos are just too good.This is located at Downing and “old” Hampden near several hospitals.

My wife and I went to Adelitas for lunch today, this was our second try. I ordered chips and salsa to start they were ok but nothing special, but unlike most Mexican style restaurants they charge extra for the chips and salsa. (BTW, this is not an inexpensive restaurant)My wife ordered a chili relleno which was good but not outstanding. I ordered fish tacos, the tacos were tasty and there was plenty of filling but they were served open-faced on soft corn tacos shells that were no bigger than 2 1/2 inches in diameter, there was no folding these over. Plus, there was nothing else on the plate, just three 2.5 inch tacos. About the service: The hostess was pleasant and another young lady brought us water. Then our waitress came over (this is where I'm going to catch hell). I'm old but I understand that young people want to be individuals, this twenty-something young woman looked like she had an inch of snot hanging from her nose. I'm sorry but it was not appropriate for a waitress serving food. (just my opinion) The Adelitas obviously doesn't agree with me. I don't think that I'll be going back anytime soon, way too many other choices in the Littleton area to waste my money here.

I am in the process of relocating to Littleton, and am just getting familiar with the area. My daughter and I were craving Mexican, and heard about this place from a local. It was terrific! I had the shrimp fajitas, which were very fresh and excellent, and we also had tableside guacamole, one of my favorite foods. Everything was delicious, the service was friendly and fast and the ambience is very classy and enjoyable. I am looking forward to eating here often

We thought we would try this spot for someplace different. We went on a Sunday evening so it wasn’t too busy. The staff was very friendly and made us feel very welcome. The food was good coming right off the truck. Highly recommend the salsa trio. The salsa choices were all really good, along with tasty chips. I think this would be a fun place with friends on a weekend.

Went for lunch on a weekend. It was super busy with no deck seating available. There was a band that was going to start playing shortly and that may have been the reason for everyone wanting to eat outside. We did find an indoor table. Within half an hour the inside was also crowded. You should know that you just seat yourself, so as soon as you walk in you should start looking for a table. They had lots of regular “bar food” on the menu, but their specialty is Mexican. We all ordered a Mexican dish and were not disappointed. The steak tacos were some of the best I’ve had. They have a fun drink menu and a few special drinks for the day. I ended up getting their house margarita and it was very good. Great place to come and hang out if you are in the area. By the way, the crowd was varied and there were many families with small children (everyone was having a good time).

Reviewed By JJSHColo

I stopped here a couple of years ago in the afternoon because the nearby golf course restaurant was closed and my buddies had to have a beer. I think we were there around happy hour. We also had some appetizers. I took my friend there a couple of weeks ago as I remember the food was good. Wow, still really good stuff. And free chips and salsa. Yeah. The place was packed on a Saturday afternoon. I had the chimichanga which was great and my friend had the steak burrito which she really enjoyed. I tasted it and it was really good. Place is pricey but worth it. Wish this place was closer.

My wife and I were driving through Littleton, hungry and stumbled upon this old gem. Despite a crowd, we were seated immediately and informed the waiter we were not only in a hurry, but needed something gluten free (always a risk at older establishments). He made a couple of recommendations, took our order and was back pretty quickly with two wonderful Italian dishes. If only I could have had a glass of red wine to go with it! It so deserved it. Really good and fresh tasting food.

Absolutely love the chips and salsa here. The salsa is so fresh. One of my favorites is the bacon wrapped shrimp appetizer called Camarones. And the Poblano de Pollo...a pepper with chicken & cheese inside. Their crispy Relleno is also good. They have lots of choices of sauces which makes it easy for everyone to find something they like.

First time here - it was fine - the Chile Relleno was good but the burrito and enchilada were mediocre - they got my order wrong but since the service was just ok I didn’t bother to have them fix it - wouldn’t recommend or go back because in a city this big surely there is a better Mexican restaurant
