Famed north Denver taco truck Kiké’s Red Tacos plans to open a permanent location in the near future, according to a recent liquor license reported by The Denver Post. Owner Cesar González’s new location will be at 1200 W. 38th Avenue; former home of Crush Pizza & Tap, which closed in April.

Kiké’s Red Tacos, which opened in 2020, usually operates out of a parking lot at the corner of West 38th Avenue and Meade Street, where customers often camp out prior to the truck’s opening to ensure that they’ll be able to enjoy the savory, birria tacos before they sell out almost every day by lunchtime. Birria, which originated from the Mexican state of Jalisco, is a meaty stew that’s blended with an array of spices that gives the meat its signature, red hue. The fried tortillas add crunch, and then, traditionally, the tacos are slathered in the consommé (broth) before serving. The style has become all the rage in the last few years as this more modern style has worked its way across the United States.

The truck also specializes in quesatacos; where the tortillas themselves are dipped into the red broth, then filled with stewed meat and layered cheese before being topped with onions and cilantro.

Kiké’s won The Post’s “Taco Bracket” last year, and will be able to serve many more clients in the more than 2,000 square foot location on 38th, but did not reply to The Post when requested to comment on the new venture. Approval for their liquor license was still pending at the time of writing, but upon approval, expect the popular truck to soon expand into its more accessible location. Parking lot campers need not apply.
