On the hunt for some margaritas our first stop was closed so we improvised and ended up at Inca. We have been to Inca before and while the food is not so memorable, the margarita’s are unforgettable. This pleasantly pastel painted restaurant is located in the front of the King Soopers parking lot on College Ave., so it isn’t hard to miss.
Atmosphere: Probably the most amusing part of the décor is the murals of tropical birds and Mexican landscapes painted on every wall. There are turquoise colored booths with floral upholstery patterns, tables and chairs down the center of the restaurant area and a Catina in the back. Most of the place is done in pastel- like- colors and decorated with festive Mexican art. There always seems to be crowds of people enjoying family meals here while the Catina remains scarce. We went straight to the Catina where we watched soccer, airing on the flat screens perched above the bar. Other than the bus boys, manager and servers popping in to get the score, we had the place to ourselves.
Service: The service was good at the bar. The bartender offered to make some custom margaritas for us, in the event we were not pleased with their selection of ten plus flavors. The manager was often wandering around, greeting customers and helping out when needed.
Drinks: There are 4 beers on tap and those are your basic domestics. They do have several domestics in a bottle and a good selection of imports like Dos Equis XX, Modelo and Bonhemia. There is a thorough drink menu offering several flavors of margaritas and pina coladas. They also offer a lengthy tequila selection as well as specialty margaritas in grande or mucho grande. We had the grande strawberry margarita. It was the perfect combination of sweet and strong.
Food: We won’t lie. The food, although good portions, is not so great. We mainly return for the margaritas. The menu is choc full of Mexican classics like burritos, fajitas, tostadas and enchiladas as well as combination plates with beans and rice. They do have a kids menu and as well as an American food section offering cheeseburgers, fish & chips and chicken strips for the gringo’s.
Amenities: HD TV’s in the Catina, patio in front , catering, free chips and salsa.
Parking: Parking available in the parking lot surround Inca Mexican restaurant.
The Buzz: Kids eat free Wednesdays (10 and under), happy hour Monday through Thursday from 3 to 6pm, 20% off appetizers during happy hour, $3.50 Margarita Mondays.
