Traditionally Mexican prepared meats, piled on handmade tortillas, and topped off with fresh creative toppings…the variety is endless and delivers the utmost in taste. Locally owned by the same owners since 2012, T/ACO is as authentic and family-oriented as can be. The 100 percent female kitchen staff, all of whom are all of first-generation, Mexican descent, deliver the utmost in their commitment to cooking from scratch. “Every morning we run boiled corn through our wet mill to make fresh corn masa, which is then rolled out and cut into circles and grilled on our plancha to make fresh tortillas,” says Managing Partner Peter Waters. “No one else in Boulder is following all these steps to make their own in-house tortillas.” 1175 Walnut St., Boulder, 303.443.9468, tacocolorado.com.
