the name of the taco does not do it justice; it was healthy, hearty and so much more than seasoned tofu. what a delightful offering! there was momentary sketchiness with how my groupon was to be processed which could have proved extremely embarrassing for sunspot and me. the suggestions to photograph my groupon was totally unacceptable, socially awkward and terribly off-putting. btw, i took it upon myself to mark the groupon as used, the most important fail safe for inventory control. that photo suggestion nearly ruined my dining experience altogether.

I look forward to the chips and salsa appetizer, a burger with cheddar cheese, and a salad with balsamic dressing every time I go. Your food is amazing!

The curry tofu tacos were spicy, but, from what I recall, this wasn't mentioned in the description...I think the menu should not that this dish is spicy.

If they ever do a Groupon again, it would be awesome if it included alcohol too! I would pay more $ for an alcohol-inclusive deal.

From Our Editors

Sunspot has been voted Best Vegetarian, Best Brunch, Best Wine List, and Best Lunch Spot by Metro Pulse readers for the menu’s gleeful collage of southwestern, Caribbean, and Latin American culinary traditions. Diners nosh on vegan, gluten-free, and omnivorous offerings including fried green tomatoes and sweet-potato tamales in low-key digs.

A large skylight casts warmth across walls the color of acorn squash, exposed brick, and a behemoth abstract mural of the sun. Servers pour from the kitchen, arms stacked with veggie burgers made in house and sandwiches stuffed with tofu and Jamaican-style jerk chicken. Behind the diner-style bar, bartenders sling 29 draft beers from brewers including SweetWater and Foothills and a substantial wine list of reds and whites by the glass or bottle. After polishing off a pan-seared tilapia in corn cream sauce, guests gaze at Sunspot's black-and-white wall photos. The restaurant is open until 2 a.m. on weekend evenings, serving food to night owls and people who trust the VCR clock.
