Fun atmosphere. Fresh guac and food. Attentive service.
Neighborhood parking (permits) and limited parking is challenging for all of the restaurants in this block.

It’s a great neighborhood spot for your favorite Mexican offerings, some items are atypical fare so read and ask for what you want.

The food was very good and loved the layer of flavors from salsa and chips to dinner dishes. The churro was very dry and disappointing, but the ice cream served on top was great.

Food was pretty good. So were the drinks. But the service was so slow. They seemed pretty understaffed.

Great dinner. Not crowded on a Saturday evening. Open area to the street so you could feel a cool breeze. Carnitas was delicious. Queso fundido was outstanding. Happy hour prices were a deal until 6:00. Highly recommend.

Great Herradura skinny margaritas - made with fresh lime (not that imitation sour crap) the best we have had in Denver1 Food was great too - fresh and not oversized portions overloaded with cheese - table side guacamole was excellent - this is a great addition to the Jefferson Park neighborhood !!

Great food and atmosphere. And not that much more expensive from the places all over Denver and the burbs that lack any positive qualities other than their food.

Had dinner with friends and we were not disappointed! The guacamole and queso dip were amazing! We each shared fajitas and they were very flavorful and yummy! The house margaritas were also very tasty! We will go back again!!

Es Fuego! The margaritas are fantastic as are the fajitas. Highly recommend the Chile Rellenos as a delicious vegetarian option!

The service was terrible. They had 1 person working the entire restaurant on Cinco de Mayo. We waited for 40 minutes without drinks or ordering and eventually left to eat across the street.

My husband and I had a wonderful experience at El Cazo. The food was fresh and delicious, the ambiance was classy, and the servers were friendly. We'd consider making the hour drive to Denver just to eat here again.

It was surprising that a restaurant this good had so few diners, though it was a Monday night. It didn't diminish our enjoyment, the food, the service or anything. I just thought "not enough people know how good this place is!"

The restaurant has a nice atmosphere and good location. I was disappointed with the vegetarian options, so I am not sure I will return unless the menu has additions or changes.

My wife and I were HUGE La Loma fans and getting to the Downtown location is just annoying and inconvenient. We were pumped to hear that a La Loma veteran was opening up shop in Jeff Park.

Unfortunately, I don't think this will be our go-to spot in the neighborhood. It was a Thursday night and the vibe was pretty lackluster. There was a good amount of people there, but because the space is so BIG it still felt empty and dead. We sat at the bar, and the bartender's service and personality might win some patrons, but just annoyed us. And finally, the Fajita's just weren't all that special.

Outstanding! The table-side guacamole was some of the best we've ever had. Everyone's food was absolutely delicious, and we loved the drinks. The service was responsive without being smothering. The ambience could be a little more cozy. Management responded very positively when we asked for the lights to be dimmed. But due to the electrical setup in the venue, options for dimmer lighting appear to be limited. We recommended suspending textiles below the lights in the ceiling to soften the room, and perhaps some colorful artwork on the walls would help, too. Otherwise, El Cazo is firing on all cylinders and deserves much success in the years ahead!

We enjoyed our lunch very much here!

One thing to suggest - please let patrons know either on the website or upon booking about Sunday brunch. We chose this restaurant because of the brunch menu and were disappointed to hear that brunch is not served on Bronco home game Sundays...
