Like most of Colorado Springs’ dining scene, Mexican food has been on the rise in recent years. New favorites have popped up featuring authentic Mexican food and more diverse culinary styles, and old favorites have gotten attention for their consistent family recipes. We wanted to highlight the best, so we polled our team of foodies and writers. They nominated, debated, voted and came up our 20 of the Best Mexican Restaurants in Colorado Springs. But we were still curious. Who are the People’s Choice Mexican Restaurant favorites?
