Take Out: For nearly four decades Paula Sandoval and her family have offered up exceptional, fresh-made tamales in north Denver, food that reflects what Sandoval calls New Mexican style. She describes her restaurant as "a clean, well-lighted place that speaks of comfort, home and friendship, a place to enjoy a good plate of food and don't forget to take tamales home!" Truth be told, this is the place in Denver for authentic, affordable, house-made tamales--green, red or vegetarian. So highly regarded are the Sandovals, they also have a factory that sells tamales wholesale to other restaurants. Of course, there are tacos, tostados, enchiladas, huevos rancheros, chili rellenos, burritos and smothered sopapillas on the menu, too.

Tamales by La Casita has an outpost at Terminal C in Denver International Airport, so you can also get your tamale fix--and other regional goodies--coming or going from Denver.

Breakfast: Tamales by La Casita is considered the best place to grab your breakfast tamale in Denver, if not in all of Colorado. La Casita is in northwest Denver, a neighborhood commonly called Highlands that's home to a large Mexican community with deep roots here. The tamales come vegetarian – green chile and cheese – or red chile with pork.

Local Expert Christine Loomis Says:

Best Value: "The tamales are made with vegetable oil, not lard, so good news: The red chile and pork tamales are 130 calories with seven grams of fat and the green chile with cheese tamales are just 120 calories with five grams of fat."

Recommended as Best Value Because: It's not just the place for excellent affordable tamales; it's also the place for true customer service and a spirit of welcoming and appreciating customers.
