Benny's Restaurant and Cantina


Located in Capitol Hill, this lively cantina is one of Denver's most popular Mexican restaurants. Prepare to wait for a table any night of the week, but the bar is comfortable and a great place to pass the time. The Grilled Chicken Burrito is a menu classic, or if you prefer the meat to be shredded, try the Smothered Burritos, which come doused in a mound of chile verde. The margaritas are recommended, and the starter chips and salsa are some of the best in town.
