There’s no shortage of Mexican food in Denver, but this fast-casual, lunch-only spot stands out because of its mission. The restaurant doubles as a social enterprise, with a very cool earn-while-you-learn model. Meaning that while the immigrant and refugee women from countries like Mexico, Venezuela, and Syria whip up your incredible Mexican Coke-braised carnitas, they’re also receiving money, education, and training so they can one day open their own food business. The menu changes daily, but if those carnitas are on the menu and you’ve got a sunny day, order them and take them to a picnic table out front.
