Las Delicias

Last night we found ourselves craving Mexican food. We ended up at Las Delicias. We were surprised to find that it was pretty busy for a Wednesday night but luckily found a parking spot right as someone pull out! We went in and sat right down. Our waitress took our drink order and quickly brought us a single glass of water. The three of us were confused. After assuming she'd bring us the other two, we waited a few minutes expecting her return. When she came to take our order we had to point out only one glass was given.

As we waited for our food we joked about how she may bring our food out in phases as well! Once she arrived, it was no longer just a joke.  She brought my husband fajitas without tortillas. She brought me half of my order. She did however, bring our friend his entire meal!

I ordered a beef and bean burrito and a chicken and cheese quesadilla. I was starving and was sure I could eat all that I ordered. My husband ordered steak fajitas and our friend ordered a combo plate.

I'm not one to complain so I'm hesitant to write details about my food. However, this is a restaurant critiquing blog... so I'll proceed. While my quesadilla was tasty, and the chicken was fine, there was hardly any cheese! What's a quesadilla with little to no queso? It wasn't bad tasting though!

My burrito was good! It was honestly quite surprising how much it tasted like one of those frozen burritos. I don't mean that in a bad way, it was good! Just not the texture or quality I expected. The green chili on top was sweet with a hint of spicy with that strong pepper taste. Together all the flavors were quite tasty.

The fajitas were great when it comes to the flavors of the toppings. The meat was flavorless though. The dish was served with lettuce, guacamole, tomatoes, pico de gallo and a side of beans. Overall the food was decent. Really nothing to go out of your way to try. Sadly, the service was probably the worst I've had at any Denver restaurant. I was extremely displeased when the bussers parked the garbage can cart next to my table to scrape dirty dishes from the table across from us. Less than appetizing really.

I don't mean to be rude, this restaurant was just far from impressive in my opinion but I may have hit them on a bad night. The parking lot was packed, which seems to tell me that others must enjoy this place for one reason or another. As for me, I'll stick with a "no thank you" when being asked to return to this "Mexican" restaurant.
