Call off the search, we have found a great Mexican restaurant in Denver! With little going on this past Friday, Kim and I decided to head out for dinner after work. I consulted my 5280 magazine from July, which featured the Top Of The Town article, and decided to try the readers’ choice for best Mexican restaurant, Benny’s Restaurante y Tequila Bar (301 E 7th Ave).
I had a combination plate consisting of a cheese enchilada, smothered bean burrito, and a guacamole tostada. I think my favorite thing on the plate was the guacamole. I would highly recommend having their guacamole in some form or another. The rest of my food was delicious as well. Kim ordered a chicken rellenos, which she really seemed to enjoy. I did not try more than a little bite of it, since I had enough food of my own. We also split a liter of margaritas on the rocks, another thing that I would highly recommend. Overall, the food was great and we will definitely be back sometime in the near future.
