Comida at the Source
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.

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.
The owner and manager were both there and they were both so lovely to chat with! The service and food were excellent and I will definitely be going back!
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.
Good food and we had a great server!
Great place for unique tacos
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.
Great! Nice meal!
Great food, super friendly and accommodating service.
A nice piece of the complex at The Source in RINO.
I love Comida. The service is always great and the food is awesome! We have been here for lunch and dinner and it is always a good time. The staff is super friendly and accommodating and the food is fun and delicious making it a good place for dates, friends, or family :)
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.
Good foodx good service. Vegetarian bowl was excellent.
Tacos, soggy. Drinks were great, but tiny for price. Coconut cake was a disaster: driest slab of cake I have ever eaten. Waiter placed last in recent Mr Personality contest.
Use to love u, Comida. Have to cut u loose tho.
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.
The special taco was overly salty and not spicy enough - it was also cold
Wonderful night out. Terrific food. Terrific location. The Source is an incredible place to spend an evening.
The Spicy Watermelon 🍉 🌶 is fantastic! Love this place.
The food did not come out all at once. There was a 10 minute delay from the first to the second and another 10 for the final. Some of our group was eating and others were just watching.
La Comida at the Source is a good place for food as well as the ambiance of folks enjoying the Source and La Comida. Our server was very attentive and helpful.
So great. Got seated quick on the awesome patio. Ordered chips & guac as an app. I ordered the pineapple habanero marg and it was one of the best I’ve had! 2 people in our party got the bowls with chicken and I got tacos. All were excellent! Service was great too.
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 but the service was poor.
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.
Great food, service, and overall experience. Must do.
The food is never what you expect but always full of flavor and fun to eat.
We had dinner for Mother's Day. Everything comes family style but pricing is per taco. The mashes inside the taco are delicious.
Food was okay but the ambiance and service is great. Good portions, just not excellent food.
Like always food was great at the drinks too
Great food and cocktails!
The food was ok but overpriced, and our server was kinda rude and dismissive. It was pretty confusing because we were extremely nice to him, but he just seemed annoyed to be serving us. We're all servers so we get it, but come on bro...no need to spread bad vibes.
The food and drinks were delicious. The chips and guacamole are a must!
This review is actually for previous visits - Comida was closed for this reservation due to electric outage. Typically good food and service.
The staff was friendly, the food was delicious, and the price was very reasonable. I will definitely go again. I ordered a quesadilla and chicken tacos and highly recommend both.
Comida at The Source is a fun and interesting place to eat. I found the place via Open Table while on vacation and was not disappointed. The menu uses authentic Mexican and Latin American flavors in a creative and delicious way. I would go back in a heartbeat if I didn't live 1500 miles away.
Their construction and parking situation is awful right now.
