In a Nutshell

Avocado-and-pork burritos and tres leches cakes in eatery lauded by the Colorado Springs Independent and The Gazette

The Fine Print

Promotional value expires Dec 15, 2012. Amount paid never expires. Limit 2 per person. Limit 1 per table. Dine-in or carry-out only. Not valid for dozens of tamales, whole cakes, or daily special. Merchant is solely responsible to purchasers for the care and quality of the advertised goods and services.

The tortilla's thinness makes it ideal for folding, sliding under closed doors, and illustrating theories that the earth is made of corn. Exhibit A, with this Groupon.

The menu includes crispy, fried, and soft-shell tacos ($2.19–$3.65) and burritos with chicharron, a crisp fried pork rind ($3.40). Traditional tamales ($2.15–$3.99) precede slices of tres leches cake with chocolate or coconut ($3.40).

El Taco Rey

A line winds across the sidewalk, with people curiously peering ahead to see who has just been let inside. The door opens, releasing not the pulsing of a nightclub, but the aromas of green-chili tamales steaming in cornhusks and chicharron frying. For more then 35 years, the Aguilar family has presided over the little brick building, and their cooking has gained a devoted following. In the kitchen, seasoned beef sizzles in a skillet like the decorations at a dragon’s surprise party, and cool slices of tres leches cakes steep in sweet sauce. As patrons snatch up lunchtime table space, they eye items such as the avocado-and-pork burrito, which the Colorado Springs Independent called “locally legendary.”
