“Great Place by Colorado College”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2012

We love to go there for the fish tacos and lunch time. Great place for a quick business meeting, too. We never have trouble finding a place to park the car.

“Best Fast Tacos Ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2011

Fast, inexpensive, unique, delicious. Can't think of any more positive adjectives. Each taco is better than the next. Fish is probably the best, followed by beef then chicken. Get the combo so you can try each. Rice bowls are also fabulous. You simply cannot go wrong here, with fruit salsas (mango is awesome, so is the papaya salad). It is hard to find, as you have to go around back of a building, but this is a must go!

“Great Change Up on Tacos”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2011

I had read about La'au's Tacos before visiting Colorado Springs. It is a Hawai'ian version of Chipolte. You pick a burrito, three tacos, bowl, salad; then you pick your meat/fish; then you pick your toppings. It is different and it is good.

It is not easily found as the shop is located at the back of a building. Just watch for the sign Lu'au's on Tejon Street.

“Simple menu, great food and inexpensive beer”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2011

Joe Coleman hits another home run! Whether you are at Nosh, La'au's or his flagship Blue Star you are in for excellence. When I first heard of La'au's I wasn't sure what could be different about tacos, I am certainly glad I took the plunge. The menu has changed a little over the years but it remains simple: walk up to the counter and choose your style (bowl, taco, ect...), choose your meat, choose the pre-assorted sauce combinations, pay, get your number and when it's ready it'll be brought out to your table. While you wait grab a basket of chips off the counter, some salsa and enjoy. They have a great inexpensive happy hour with several brews to choose from and the staff makes everything to order. If your north of downtown or headed to CC for a free outdoor concert stop on by La'au's for a delicious meal. One hint, the location is hidden in the alley off Tejon and Cache OR head up to Boulder for their new location off Broadway.
