Monica's Taco Shop in Colorado Springs does old school right
The other day, we asked a friend and Colorado College grad where to find the best tacos in Colorado Springs.
The intrigue: The answer came back Monica's Taco Shop — along with this unusual endorsement: "You know it's good because" El Chapo may have laundered money through there, we were told.
- Not to condone any alleged crimes, but we had to try it.
What to order: The menu covers all the bases. The carnitas taco hit the spot with decadent pulled pork and a bright pico salsa.
- The chicken taco came wrapped in a hard shell with shredded lettuce is a tasty old school approach.
Bonus: We love tacos, but the best part about Monica's is probably the all-day breakfast burritos.
