Many of our restaurant partners are experiencing staffing shortages. In support of their hardships, The Denver Box has decided to take a short break. We will be back in the fall with some fabulous restaurant experiences. Stay tuned!

Featured Chef & Restaurant Owner



Chef Sandoval

XATRUCHO was created by chef Sandoval with the vision to become one of the premier private cooking companies  in Denver. We focus on curating menus that bring together the essence of classic ,old-school cooking techniques with Latin cuisine  inspired flavor profiles 

The XATRUCHO mentality behind food is simple: cook with the seasons, source your products consciously, and above all have fun while creating beautiful and delicious food. Our biggest joy comes from  working with as many local farms and small businesses as possible and paying attention to the way we exercise our purchasing power. We work closely with the Latino community to find ways to generate fair-wage  jobs and give the community the tools to grow through food, from mentoring small food vendors to teaching cooking classes to kids in the community. 

The XATRUCHO team takes pride in what we allow to come out of our kitchen. Our cuisine is clear -  cook from scratch, taste as you go, and never allow quality and flavor lose out to trends and fads. We make our cuisine accessible by having an eclectic list of partners in the food and beverage industry, partnering with breweries, venues and chefs to create events  that range from exclusive dining experiences to relaxed pop-up events. Our upcoming food projects include a collaboration with Enigma Bazaar and more community based food demos and classes.

OUR VISIONTo Bring hope to the Hopeless
OUR MISSIONRescue people, Rebuild Lives, Restore Dreams
OUR VALUESThese values guide our every step and speak to the immediacy and flexibility required to pursue God’s Kingdom in the inner-city.
Everything is an experiment.
Pick a fight.
Pray like it depends on God and work like it depends on you.
Playing it safe is too risky.
You can never out-give God.
Expect the unexpected.
Love people when they least expect it and least deserve it.
Go the extra mile.
It’s never too late to be who you might have been.
A church that stays in its four walls isn’t a church at all.
Be known by what we are for and not against.
Be willing to live life interrupted.

During COVID we wanted to do something to support our community and The Denver Box gave us a great opportunity to support restaurants, nonprofits and visit with friends. Not to mention the food is so good. Oh and reasonable in price.
