We’re Number 1….through 15
In terms of Nachos that is. This isn’t breaking news, but The Wall St. Journal ranked North Denver’s very own Rosa Linda’s Mexican Cafe in the nation’s top 15 in the nacho department.
Apparently, they didn’t rank it beyond that so there’s no way of knowing if their Nachos are #1 or not, but I can say they’re quite delicious and, as the photo reveals, mountainous. Went there yesterday for the first time, yum. And to be honest, I don’t even like nachos that much and these are quite the stuff.
Now lest I break form and not complain about something, I’ll update you on my quest to locate Denver pizza that transcends mediocrity. Had a lot of recommendations for Edgewater Inn and while their sauce is quite good, toppings decent and atmosphere unpretentious -though how many TV monitors a restaurant like that really need? – the crust resembled something out of the Safeway freezer aisle.
I will say that , however chainish, Anthony’s Pizza and Pasta makes a respectable plain slice, but that’s all I got in Denver. Also, beyond the metro area my friend Noel of Newspeak fame took me to Borriello Brothers in Colorado Springs right across the street from Palmer High School. That’s definitely the best slice I’ve had in the state, hands down. Though Poor Richards nearby is not at all bad, though the service is slower then the DMV.
Again, I exempt Buenos Aires Pizza from this debate since it’s a distinct school of pizza.
