What You'll Get
Before being wrapped in tortillas, taco meat was served directly into diners' cupped hands, which had to uncomfortably await layers of condiments. Munch on conveniently corn-wrapped cuisine with today's Groupon for lunch and drinks at El Camino Community Tavern. This wind-powered outpost of Mexican meals gathers local ingredients and all-natural meats, grinding out delectable recipes and fresh batches of salsas and guacamole every morning. A bundle of toothsome options provides a belly-swelling break from an afternoon playing swollen Highlands bagpipes. In addition to tasty ingredients, El Camino's tacos are stuffed with charity––15% of their gross sales are donated every Monday to local elementary schools. This Groupon is good seven days a week, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Yelpers give El Camino a four-star average.

About el Camino Community Tavern
Throughout the summer months, el Camino's rooftop garden blossoms with organic cilantro and mint leaves, providing ultra-fresh accouterments for the eatery's Mexican feasts. And though the small garden doesn’t cultivate all of el Camino’s ingredients, the rest of the bounty originates not too far from Highland. For example, the eatery's chefs stuff housemade tamales, tacos, and other lunch and dinner specialties with all-natural chicken, beef, and pork from local vendor Anderson Meats. They create guacamole, salsa, and each and every dessert completely from scratch, using produce supplied by two Colorado companies, Red Hat Foods and Arroyo Produce. Beyond supporting the local economy, el Camino tries to preserve the entire ecosystem by operating on 100% wind power and recycling all of its cans, bottles, and cardboard cutouts of Al Gore.
While satisfying hunger with decadent, locally sourced food, including a daily brunch, el Camino sates rippling thirsts for both beer and entertainment. The bar pours drafts from the likes of Del Norte, Avery, and Great Divide breweries, and mixes up potent bloody marys, mimosas, and sangria. Every night of the week brings a different treat, such as $1 street tacos on Tuesday and the Tito Del Barrio Malaga flamenco band every Saturday.
