The ancient Aztecs were the first to distill the agave into tequila, revolutionizing their margaritas after centuries of breaking their bendy straws in mixtures of desert sand and ice.

Lauded as 2010's Best Mexican Restaurant and home of the Best Margarita in Parker by Colorado Community Newspapers, Tequila Joe's lives up to both reputations with its varied Mexican cuisine and more than 15 specialty margaritas. Each of the eight combination platters reunites three classic Mexican dishes, such as a beef burrito, cheese enchilada, and beef taco, after years spent warring over artistic differences. In the #8 combo's underwater soiree, a grilled fish taco and crab enchilada catch up while a rambunctious chipotle enchilada spikes the plate with zesty flavor.
Meanwhile, salt lines the rims of a selection of specialty margaritas that make use of more than 40 tequilas to mix potions such as Tequila Joe's signature margarita, in which the fruity flavors of strawberry or prickly pear enrich a double-shot of blanco tequila and DeKuyper triple sec. Fill the air of the indoor dining room with the citrusy scent of the orange-liqueur-and-lime-infused Coin margarita, or move outdoors to Tequila Joe's patio, lit in the evening by torches, a fire pit, and the moon's glowing sense of self-worth.
Tequila Joe's Mexican Kitchen
Tequila Joe's Mexican Kitchen’s friendly staff members lives up to the high standards set by their 2010 Best Mexican Restaurant award from Parker Chronicle, greeting customers with smiles as big as their hearty burritos stuffed with coconut rice and served alongside freely flowing margaritas. Harnessing produce and meats grown and raised in Colorado whenever possible, the chefs craft chimichangas, enchiladas, and tacos brimming with seafood, veggies, and meats—including carnitas and barbacoa beef—as well as southwestern pasta. Bartenders draw from more than 40 tequilas as they pour margaritas for guests, who can watch the big game or their college football team's mascot solve quadratic equations on the big-screen TV. The eatery's orange and adobe walls, rustic accents, and latticed wooden ceiling conjure images of the tropical destinations that inspired Tequila Joe's mouthwatering Mexican eats.
