"Bar snacks at their best"—that's how The Gazette described TAPAteria when it opened in 2010. The raves haven't slowed since – the Colorado Springs Independent recently named TAPAteria the city's best spot for appetizers and tapas in 2013. Using local ingredients, the eatery's culinary team crafts nearly 35 authentic Spanish tapas, from chorizo-stuffed mushrooms to grilled shrimp with garlic. Each small plate is entirely gluten-free, while half the options are vegetarian. A quarter are even vegan, such as artichoke and pepper salad. No matter the dish, The Gazette calls TAPAteria's flavors "straight out of the streets of Madrid or Sevilla." Many of those flavors can be carried straight out of TAPAteria, too, in the forms of meats and cheeses from the restaurant's massive Spanish deli.
