This restaurant is permanently closed. After 5½ years of serving tacos in The Source, Comida is shutting down its RiNo restaurant. The last day of service there will be on Tuesday, April 30.

“I love Comida and am excited to continue to put my energy and efforts into our location in The Stanley and our catering taco truck, Tina. It’s a bittersweet decision to close our location inside The Source. We’re so grateful for the opportunity it presented and to the supporters and regulars who we’ve enjoyed serving there over the past 5 and a half years. We’re happy to be able to offer our loyal team positions at our Stanley location so we can keep our Comida family together.”

On the last day of service at Comida at The Source, we will close the doors early to host a “thank you” family dinner for her staff. Folks looking to fulfill their Comida fix will find their favorites at the restaurant’s other brick and mortar outpost at the Stanley Marketplace location (2501 Dallas Street), as well as at Tina, the Comi

The Comida truck travels through neighborhoods and office parks along Colorado’s Front Range, feeding people simple and authentic Mexican flavors and making friends along the way. We keep our menu small enough to cook everything inside the truck; serving tacos, tostadas, quesadillas and gorditas. In addition to the truck we offer full-service Indoor Catering.

Small portions so you don't feel stuffed when you leave. Unique combination of ingredients. Very tasty.

Our service was great and the food was good. I was expecting to be a bit more impressed with the food than I was but it wasn't bad. Also, we ordered a bar/pitcher of margaritas and didn't even catch a buzz for $35 that was a waste and I haven't had booze in 12 weeks and that is ALL i have wanted. Kind of a bust.

Disappointed in the food and the ambiance is almost like an airport- not the most fun atmosphere. For the price, there are much better options nearby

Maybe it was just an off night. Hopefully it was.
We hadn't been to Comida at The Source in Denver for several years. Loved to food truck from the beginning and their spot in Longmont. And had some great experiences at Comida in Denver when it was just starting out.
Service was solid and we really love The Source, but the food was sloppy, literally. We had six different specialty tacos at our table and only the shrimp was good. The others were soggy, oversaturated with marinade and salt, and slathered with whatever salsa or jam came with each.
The tortillas dissolved and fell apart from the excess juice.
My wife asked for replacement tortillas, and we didn't note until paying that we were charged for them.
Our out of town guests couldn't believe this was a place we had built up as so tasty.
At least the mezcal and cervesas were good.

Hello Mark B. Thank you for telling us of your experience, as it is helpful to know what we can improve upon. I love what we do at Comida, but I understand the frustrations around loving something and raving about it to your friends - only to be disappointed. I would agree that it was an off night, however, your experience is yours and I apologize that it was so poor. I hope you return and if you do, please ask for me. With Honor, Dameda Finney General Manager, Comida at The Source

We had a group of nine and were told they didn’t serve family style, but then all the food showed up randomly over the next 30 minutes.

The carrot beet taco, salsas, and chips and guacamole were super yummy but the coconut cake was awful. It tasted like it had been sitting out for days it was so dry. I would go back again and recommend, but sit at the bar and stick to the basics.

Comida was pretty busy when we arrived, so we sat for awhile before getting any service. However, staff was very friendly and apologetic. Salsa trio and guacamole were great, as were our tacos-shrimp, beet, and poblano. However, our Comida Margarita seemed pretty weak and the glass was filled with ice and very little beverage.

I've enjoyed Comida food at all of their locations, and their food truck too! The Situation tacos are my favorite, but the mushrooms and the chicken are also wonderful flavor. I'll have to try a torta next time I visit. The chilaquiles on the brunch menu looked delicious.

Good place with great service. Food was lacking but still yummy. Not enough textural different in the items. For instance , the tacos I had didn’t have any crunch sorta all the same mushy ness. They were drizzled with sour cream and salsa verde. That took away from my fav part - the toritilla. Would still go back but I’d keep it to drinks (amazing) and chips and guac.

We had a 7:45pm reservation on a Saturday night. The hostess knew it was me before I even said anything, so I assumed we were the last reservation on the books. They sat us upstairs and service started off fine. Until our entrees arrived before our guacamole appetizer. How long does it take to get us an order of guac? The tacos were decent, although I no longer trust a server's explanation of a dish's spice level. We also waited a long time to get our check and the server didn't come back to pick up our credit card. Just to get out of there, we paid in cash.

While the menu descriptions sound yummy, I found the food to be blah. The pineapple margarita had so much pulp in it, it was almost difficult to drink.

Food did not come out together—about 20-30 minutes between the first meal was delivered and the last, even after inquiries. We were repeatedly told the food would come out when it was ready, which wasn’t a terribly satisfying response, but ultimately they decided one person’s meal had been misplaced. To make up for it, the restaurant was not going to charge for that meal but it was still on the ticket when it came and we had to ask for it to be taken off. We had a group of ten people (so not small), but the restaurant was fairly empty and It still took two hours from start to finish before the check was paid and we could go. I’m not convinced that management understood that it was not a good experience for any of us or why it was a problem that it took so long before everyone had their meals. As far as I know, everyone in our group was polite about the issue and we were given a light apology, but it didn’t feel they were really aware that they had badly missed the mark. I’m not excited about apologizing to my guests on behalf of a restaurant that I had selected, especially when I felt I was apologizing more than the restaurant.

Had a great meal at Comida! The watermelon margarita was delicious and well worth returning for that alone. Loved the griddled tacos — flavorful, really great. Service was excellent — we didn’t have to wait for anything we needed and great recommendations from our server.

Food was good - the tacos were a little "saucy" - but tastes were vibrant and fresh. Overall would go back for casual, dinner fare, snacks. Drinks were very good! Although would say if going back to The Source, Acorn is far better overall for dinner.
