Juan’s Super Pollo

1593 Peoria St.
Aurora, CO 80010

Westword voted the tomatillo salsa at Los Farolitos Best Green Chile in 2011, but theirs isn’t the southwestern style green chile many Coloradoans grew up with, it’s an authentic Mexican-style version. Los Farolitos specializes in the cuisine local to Mexico City, particularly guisados, or stewed meats—lamb and goat are their specialties. It’s one of the few places in town you can find huaraches, the oblong fried corn dough piled in toppings named after a type of sandal, and its barbacoa is unbeatable. Go for the buffet for a sampling of house favorites, or order off the extensive menu of traditional Mexican favorites.**
