The taco Colorado sign was super cute. Yes, Colorado people are weird. And strangely obsessed with the flag and being “natives.” I’ve never seen a Minnesota flag in a restaurant back home, but this is certainly not the first I’ve seen in a Colorado restaurant.
We ordered a ton of food. Carnitas salad, carnitas taco, Buff taco, Colonel taco, and chips & guac. The salad was pretty amazing and actually pretty huge – romaine and spinach! You can take any taco off the menu and turn it into a salad. I like that it’s right on there, and I don’t have to feel like I’m asking for some special exceptions.
The tacos!!!! Kevin ate most of these, but I had a few bites too. The tortillas were triple layered because the tacos were super full and… juicy? Haha. So delicious. We had the corn tortillas, and they were great.
I love you chips & guacamole!!!!! So I totally splurged, but if you wanted to eat fairly strict paleo here, it would be pretty easy! So that’s exciting to me. It also seems that their food is from really good quality sources, like local Red Bird chicken, etc. We’ll be back soon to try ALL THE BREAKFAST TACOS!!!
I think this is my new official favorite taco place! And they have a food truck too so that’s exciting.
My other two favorite taco places are probably Comida which has really unique (but tiny) tacos, but probably not such a good salad choice. And we used to really love Marg’s, but that place can be super loud and is probably better for people who enjoy drinking. I still like them both, but we have a new winner.
Oh!! We also spotted some people (dancers?!?!?!?!) from the Colorado Ballet on the patio. They had Colorado Ballet folders!! That’s a good sign, right? I’m always on the lookout for the dancers, and the other day I met someone who sings for the Colorado Opera! Too bad I missed going to Carmen, I could’ve told him that I just saw him.
Afterwards we walked around the hood a little bit (I’m wearing my wedding shoes – haha!), and ran into a couple of places on the sidewalk like “dance spot” and this “kiss spot.” Okay, then. You don’t have to tell use twice!
Have a great weekend! I’m off to send a million business emails, go to CrossFit, and then a Rockies games tonight!!! Hoping it doesn’t rain.
