LA LOMA Mexican Restaurant
2527 West 26th Avenue
Denver, CO 80211-4804
La Loma is situated at the top of a hill at the top of a steep driveway, and at the top of most Denver-Mexican-Restaurant lists. It’s one of the best Mexican restaurants in the Denver area and definately one of the classiest.
“La Loma is located in a distinctive Denver home that was constructed in 1887. The home accommodates a Cantina with a large fireplace, and three unique dining rooms – The Colonial Room, The Victorian Room and The Galleria are a blend of early American and Southwestern Cultures.” [Excerpt is from La Loma’s website]
The Old House is an island of tranquility and class in an old, North Denver neighborhood. Dark woods, exposed brick/beams, cozy booths, and an antique, (working) taco machine provide the background for this above average Mexican restaurant.
Their specialties include:
Green Chile, Chile Rellenos, Fajitas and Margaritas
Excellent Service & Atmosphere

(All fajitas served on a bed of onions with guacamole, pico de gallo, sour cream, roasted jalapenos and home made flour tortillas.)
