Garcia’s and Goodbye Carbondale, CO!

July 7, 2012 § 4 Comments

After three weeks in paradise full of this:

It is time to say goodbye. I am savoring one last bit of my vacation with a final post about the delicious food they have in Carbondale, CO. While there are so many amazing, unique restaurants out there–Phat Thai, Six 89— I wanted to write about a new spot I was turned on to this trip that had us coming back day after day for lunch.

It is very easy to miss Garcia’s off Highway 82; your eye may skip over the nondescript sign and small stand-alone building. But inside is some of the most savory, authentic Mexican food you can find. Order from the counter and then head past the panadería and the carnicería to the small bodega in the back to pay your ticket.

I’ve never been to Mexico but I imagine their diners look something like this. With self-serve housemade Mango Juice in a jug, of course.

Steak Torta. The bread used for this sandwich tastes like the cinnamon you smell baking in some sort of delicious sweet bread in the store.

If you go, you MUST try the Quesadilla Ranchero. I literally ordered at least one of these EVERY SINGLE TIME I went in. No exceptions.
