The History of Mountain Mex®

image_history (1)…we were hungry. Hungry for something beyond the Tex-Mex food that has spread out all over the country. Something closer to the original recipes of true Mexican food, but adapted to suit our particular Rocky Mountain tastes.

The world’s first taste of Mountain Mex® was at the Hacienda Colorado® located at Wadsworth and Belleview in Lakewood.

Our second location, in Lone Tree near I-25 and Lincoln Ave., debuted a more contemporary Mexican hacienda architecture. That same style continued in Hacienda Colorado® Westminster, our third location near the Boulder Turnpike and 104th.

Our fourth location in the city limits of Denver is just off Colorado Blvd. and I-25. Our Mexican food with altitude is now physically located where it’s been all these years – in the heart of Denver.

In 2013, we opened our Colorado Springs location in the University Village Colorado shopping plaza.

Summer 2018 saw the addition of the Hacienda Colorado on the 16th Street Mall at Court Place, in the Sheraton Hotel tower.

Watch for our latest location in Applewood/Wheat Ridge off of I-70 at 32nd and Youngfield opening during the Winter of 2020.
