Jose Ramirez opened the original Los Dos Potrillos at a time when he only had $5.18 left in his bank account. He had been working as a server manager at a restaurant called Las Palmas and had saved enough to pour all of his resources in his dream: the first Los Dos Potrillos location in Centennial.
According to the official website, Ramirez was so confident in his own restaurant that he “would tell these first customers of Los Dos that if they didn’t like the food, he’d buy it for them,” even though he didn’t have the money in his bank account.
Still, the food speaks for itself. Los Dos serves appetizers such as nachos and ceviche, “house favorites” that include barbacoa queso tacos, chicken chile relleno, chuletas de puerco, stuffed sopapilla, a “mexican hamburger” with beans, rice and green chile, and more.
Their newest location is set to open in Arvada on 7310 W 52nd Ave right off Reed St and will be neighboring Namiko’s Japanese and a Subway. A representative from Los Dos wasn’t available to comment on when exactly the Arvada location would be opening, but we hope to be able to visit soon.
