The original Las Delicias restaurant closed its doors suddenly last week, Westword reported. The large space set at 439 East 19th Avenue has been home to the family-owned business for nearly four decades. Robert and Norma Torres launched the Uptown restaurant in 1976 and grew their reach with locations in Glendale, Parker, Conifer, and Littleton.
The restaurant's website says the location is closed for remodeling until spring 2016. Westword has doubts about its return and hints at parking problems the Mexican eatery may have encountered as the neighborhood boomed with large apartment buildings. Stay tuned for updates.
