The Final Four Taco matchups

  • Provided by Tacos Selene

    A mix of chicken, asada, barbacoa and al pastor tacos from Tacos Selene, with locations in Littleton and Aurora.

  • Provided by Los Dos Potrillos

    Los Dos Potrillos tacos include Jerez-style Chorizo, shredded chicken, shredded beef, pork adobada, grilled chicken, pork carnitas and asada.

Tacos Selene vs. Los Dos Potrillos

It’s a duel between two suburbanites: Tacos Selene with its humble Aurora beginnings and a Littleton outpost; and Los Dos Potrillos with its small empire across Parker, Centennial, Highlands Ranch and Littleton. Los Dos is the one to beat, but Selene is an underdog to watch closely at this phase in the competition. Will it be the straightforward street tacos or the sit-down platters with margs to match?

Kike’s Red Tacos vs. Mexico City Lounge 

Old stalwart meets new favorite in this decadent match-up. Kike’s is a modern birria master, with rich flavors from melty cheese and consomme-dipped meat, plus the perfect crispy tortilla crunch. But Mexico City has had decades to perfect its fried steak tacos, tender and oh-so-flavorful with melted (American) cheese plus lettuce and tomato for that perfect burger-like bite.
