Welcome yet another food truck to the Springs: the Roasted Jalapeño Food Truck, serving Mexican food since late August 2017.

Co-owner/chef Miguel Navarro has been in the industry for 20 years, having worked with family at Aurora restaurant Las Hadas, one of seven restaurants owned by his uncle, Roberto Torres, who’s been in the Denver restaurant scene since opening Las Delicias in 1976.

“I worked with him in the front of the house, and I also did a year of culinary school [at Auguste Escoffier School of Culinary Arts in Boulder],” says manager/co-owner/Navarro’s wife Stacy Odorowski. The couple also works with Odorowski’s mother, Diane Marr, who boasts 40 years in management under her belt and also works as a regional manager for Pamela’s Products, a gluten-free food company.

The menu’s mostly family recipes Navarro learned from parents, including a few he picked up from Las Hadas. They serve a big menu, with offerings for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

“We’re more of a mini restaurant on wheels,” Odorowski says. In the near future, they hope to add a kids’ menu and, come summer, seafood offerings.
