First nice day of April and we JUMPED at the opportunity to head outside and soak up the sunshine ☀ ☀ ☀ (aka have an excuse to wear my new pink top ;) PSST it's linked below) ♡ ♡ ♡
I heard about Machete through one of my co-workers and because who doesn't love tacos + margs, we decided to go check it out. Torchy's was our go-to place, mostly because of location, but we needed wanted to branch out. I was suprised at how empty it was on a Saturday at noon! Honestly it was great not to have to wait for a table, but it definitly caught me off guard because of all the positive reviews. We chose a spot on the patio, and not soon enough - people started trickling in so by the time we left around 130, the place was packed.
We ordered chips+salsa (not free like other places), two tacos (him: al pastor, me: betabel, a quesadilla (huitlacoche), and of course a marg (Konaaaaaaaaaa). It cost the both of us $31 before tax and tip - reasonable, but I can see why this place is more popular for its happy hour deals.
The food was O M G S O O O O O O O G O O D!!! Like literally, I have never tasted a better taco than the betabel and wanted to order like 30 more because it was INCREDIBLE. I'm not sure how they made roasted beets, chickpeas, and habanero cream taste good together, but they did! Brandon also thought his al pastor was out-of-this-world delicious. (For those of you wondering, the marg was pretty strong). Honestly, I wish they opened a 4th location so the southern suburbs of Denver can spend all of their money here :) We will definitely be going back! Which do you like better - Machete or Torcy's??
