I have driven by Monica's Taco Shop for many years but finally stopped by with a friend for lunch. Though quite small, there are a few tables inside and out. Monica's menu has a nice variety of Mexican cuisine choices. I had Carne Asada, which...More

My fav is a bean and cheese burrito. Simple, but really good! I can't imagine all the lard/fat in the beans, but I just don't think about it and enjoy a really good burrito.

While in Colorado Springs I stop in for a cheap breakfast at Monicas. They have the usual breakfast burritos with egg and bacon, but I like their lingua(tongue) taco. Very tender meat, goes well with green salsa. Great way to wake up in the morning.

First off, I love Monica's. Have eaten there for years. I like both locations, but like the one on Fillmore best. Their red salsa is amazing! Hot. But really good. Within the past two weeks, I've gotten three different things at Monica's - a burrito,...More
