What started as a food truck roaming the streets of Denver and Boulder has grown into the vibrant eatery Comida Cantina, dishing out modern Mexican food with flair. Inventive starters include the salty roasted jalapenos and the "not yo' nachos," loaded with black beans, avocado and a blend of cotija, smoked gouda and asadero cheeses. Popular entrées include the cheesy sombra shroom quesadilla, the grilled skirt steak arrachera torta sandwich, the bacon and jalapeno griddled tacos and the spicy shrimp Mexi mess bowl. Comida Cantina's mouthwatering fare is perfectly complemented by one of its signature on-the-rocks margaritas. Try the pineapple-habanero margarita for a sweet and spicy treat.
Comida Cantina is all about bringing the fresh flavors of Mexican cuisine to the masses, quickly and with heaping doses of imagination and passion.
Their construction and parking situation is awful right now.
Food and drinks were fantastic, but our waiter gave us our check before we even received our food and before we were done ordering our drinks. The bartender who delivered our drinks also made us feel like an inconvenience and all but threw the drinks on the table. The manager approached us and apologized shortly after but I'm still confused about the manner in which we were treated.
Food was really good.
Drinks were okay and took a long time...
We enjoyed a nice lunch at Comida with friends. The highlights for me were the jalapeño cheese grits and the grapefruit ginger (n/a but would also be great as an adult beverage with the addition of some tequila).
The big disappointment for our group was the discovery that Comida no longer serves their brunch menu. We checked it out online before arriving only to discover that it’s a thing of the past. Not a huge deal but, a couple of us really wanted those pancakes!
We were late for our reservation but were seated immediately. The food was great. My girlfriend and I had a plate of tacos and some drinks on happy hour. Everything tasted like fresh high quality ingredients.
Great food, great VIBE, great staff!
The tortas and tacos are top-notch. The jalapeño grits are incredible! Thank you Comida!
Family dinner with our adult kiddos! Excellent food! We can’t wait to come back!
Working at stock show we ate there twice in 2 days. Great food, service, location, even parking despite the construction
Two out of our 6 meals were incorrect and had to be recreated. We received them well after everyone finished eating. Staff apologized after the fact but didn’t communicate during the mixup about what was happening. They also didnt offer to comp those meals which they should have done. Also the order forms don’t fully match the menu- why make it challenging for customers to order? I get the concept but it doesn’t add to the customer experience.
Food had good flavor the chimayo tacos taste like it!! Everything was good and the margaritas great , the Flan was delicious and ambience was just perfect
The tacos were absolutely amazing! Loved all the great combination of flavors they had for tacos. Definitely would go back again for the great food and happy hour drinks!
It was absolutely fantastic! I loved everything about this meal. We went on a tuesday- so we got tacos (obvs) and everything off the happy hour menu. Absolutely fantastic!!!
Food was very good. This is a unique place and I would recommend it. Kind of pricey for what you get but I would go back.
Great atmosphere and great tacos.
This place is amazing! The restaurant has a nice vibe and very cool place to eat and talk. The food was very delicious, fresh, and healthy; the fact that all the ingredients were fresh and everything is made from scratch makes the food taste amazingly good compared to a lot of restaurants. You are getting more for your buck eating here, I highly recommend it!
I've been digesting Comida's delicious food since the truck used to come to our office park in Boulder. The flavors are amazing, my favorite Situation tacos!
Great happy hour with delicious food and prompt service. I will definitely return!
This is always a fun place to go and share food and spirits with friends. All ages are welcome.
We had a great time, it’s nice to be able to try a bunch of different things. We had quite a variety of items and they were all really good. Drinks are well made and sufficiently strong. The pineapple habenro marg is hot! We had great service, well timed and not at all intrusive, he made great recommendations and helped us navigate through choices for food and drink. Food and drinks for 6 people was incredibly reasonably priced. I would absolutely recommend for a evening dinner with friends or family.
Great tacos and drinks. I’ll be back soon.
Comida never disappoints, delicious tacos and such great service in an awesome setting.
I knew it was a casual street taco place - but I found the chips and salsa for a group of 7 to be paltry. We had to ask to refill them. The salsa was more of a tomato paste/sauce combo and not my favorite. Guacamole was excellent however. The tacos were a good value but my first fish taco was served at room temp and soggy, where the second one was perfectly warmed. The atmosphere is fun and lively.
Usually love. Apps great! Tacos just ok this visit.
Very good food. And very filling for the lower prices. Service was exceptional. I have a tendency to spill a lot and after I spilled my margarita, our server came back with a replacement. Good food, great service, will be back soon!
Awesome place - People should go there, and then go again.
Tacos were extremely fun, and had excellent weather for outdoor seating.
Amazing food, great service, awesome drinks, very cool atmosphere. Loved Comida, will definitely come back soon!
Great food and experience! Had the pineapple habanero margarita, which was amazing! Great food :)
I ordered 3 tacos and I only liked one out of three. The shells fell apart on all of them. The fish of the day taco was not even edible to me. Way over priced for street tacos/mexican food. I won't go back.
The service was slow. The menu is interesting but simpler might be better when it comes to tacos. The chicken was overwhelmed by the sauce. The salsas are great as are the chips.
Comida is excellent. The food is authentic Mexican including the horchata. We had an assortment of tacos and all were great. Even our wussy no hot sauce eater liked the tacos. The pineapple salsa was great, a refreshing combination. The selection of salsas was unique.
Service was laid back and attentive. Overall, highly recommended.
Such a great place to have a small birthday party! Our waiters were very friendly and the food and drinks were excellent! What a fiesta!!
Food was average and margaritas were below average and small
Really cool atmosphere and great tacos! Would recommend!
Comida does the tacos and tequila concept incredibly well...fun, open industrial space in the Source building, great food, friendly and attentive service...Family style ordering (like a sushi restaurant) is fun and a great way to try different flavors.
Tacomazing!!! The tacos are delicious and the Habanero Pineapple Margarita is a must try.
Just disappointing! Surly hostess! :(
Great margs! Great service! Good food. There are a lot of great street tacos out there these days and these were good, but average.
The source is really cool but the restaurant itself was just so so to me. The tacos were just ok, I've have much much better for cheaper. Drinks were pretty to look at and tasted good but were not very strong. If you're going more for ambiance and setting, definitely worth a try, but I wouldn't go here just for the food by any means.
I had a very picky friend and they made his dinner incorrect and then said they would take it off, but when actually they charged for 2 orders of nachos and only took one off of the tab.
