Carrera's Tacos brings West Coast flavor to metro Denver
Carrera's Tacos, owned by San Diego natives Josh and Ryan Carrera, serves some of the best Mexican food around Denver with a West Coast twist.
- The business got off the ground as a popular food truck and catering company in 2019, and recently leveled up to a brick-and-mortar location in Greenwood Village, at 7939 East Arapahoe Rd.
- The menu is broken down into tacos, burritos, specials, mariscos, apps and desserts — and fan favorites include the French-fry filled California burrito and fresh ceviche.
What I ordered: The queso taco with cauliflower and a light layer of crispy cheese ($4.25); the shrimp taco with green salsa, crema, onion and cilantro ($3.75); and the loaded street fries ($15), which literally weighed 3.2 pounds and made me gasp when they arrived at my table.
- I know they topped 3 pounds because I took them home and weighed them. (I like to measure food, apparently.)
The bottom line: No exaggeration, these tacos may be some of the tastiest I've had in my life.
Of note: Carrera's is working on its liquor license, and will begin serving brunch later this month, Axios Denver has learned.
