Mile High Vegan Eats: Marg’s Taco Bistro

Reia has been telling me about Marg’s Taco Bistro (and their yummy vegan options) forever, but I just never got around to trying it… until now! I’ve actually been there twice in the past month and could kick myself for waiting so long!

They have an amazing list of margaritas to choose from, as well as wines and other cocktails. You’re gonna want to start with one of those, and an order of guacamole…

Don’t eat the flour tortillas, they have lard!

Their menu is great for vegans and omnivores alike, especially since you can sub tofu into any taco you want! Just be careful, as their flour tortillas (which they also bring along with chips and salsa or guacamole) are made with lard. Vegans can get their tacos in either corn tortillas, or lettuce. You’ll also want to ask for your beans sans cheese.

The Belle (top) and the Korean (with tofu)

My two favorite tacos are the Belle (made with marinated portabello mushrooms, slaw and guac) and the Korean (tofu, pickled cucumbers, sriracha and a Korean BBQ sauce).

My favorite margarita is the Strawbanero… which is exactly what it sounds like: Strawberries and habaneros. Each sip starts sweet and ends really, really hot…

Marg’s has 3 locations: Cherry Creek, LoDo and Uptown. I’ve been to the Cherry Creek and Uptown locations, both are great for people watching while you eat and drink! I went with my friend Justin and we had a great time just sitting in the sun, drinking and talking!

    I’ve been eating there since I was just a wee babe with all my cool friends from the East Coast. 😉

    I kid, I kid. Are Your friends from L.A. Surprised that you’re vegan?

      Probably… Jonathan still pronounces it “vay-gun” haha

    Crap, crap, crap! I’m a bad aspiring vegan. I really, really wanted to hope that their tortillas were vegan and just went on blind assumption that they were. Thanks for finally listening to me but being a good vegan and actually asking! Still, that’s secondary to their fantastic margs and they have the best guac in town (IMHO). I have tried all of them I think and my fave is the Kiwi-Jalapeno. Just a warning to anyone who wants to try the straight-up habanero marg-my BF grew up in New Mexico and can take just about any degree of heat, but this marg made him literally angry. It was so, so very hot I could barely stand the tiny sip I took. Robert actually ordered a Pabst Blue Ribbon (a beer he avidly avoids due to it’s hipster connotation) just to drink between sips. Trust me (and Barb)-stick with the cooler drinks and enjoy them. At almost $10 a pop, you shouldn’t be in pain when you’re drinking 🙂

      I actually ate one that they brought with the guac without asking, I totally figured a restaurant with tofu on the menu would make their tortillas without lard! But then when I ordered my tacos and said I wanted them vegan, the server told me. Sigh.
