Gnarly Margaritas

Hand Squeezed Daily Delicious & Yummy

GNAR

  • Taco Del Gnar - Ridgeway, CO

ABOUT

Disenchanted with the snobby hubbub within the world of fine dining, Executive Chef Curtis Blanton, Sous Chef Joe Ouellette, and Curtis’s business-savvy, bombshell wife Chas broke free from their corpo-chains intent on providing the same detailed and complex culinary experience for all. They formulated a chef driven, street food-inspired concept through an immense passion for creating unique flavor profiles made with the freshest ingredients. After several months of brain storming, sappy 80’s power ballads, and decoupage, TACO DEL GNAR, a.k.a the gnarly taco, was born–an “elevated fast food restaurant” with the mantra that a tortilla is solely a vessel to sail thought-provoking cuisine to your mouth.

Heart and passion will be tasted in every bite. And the “independent record store” atmosphere, the hand-crafted margaritas, and muse-inspired daily creations guarantee good vibes and a casual dinning experience that all can enjoy. Stop by, grab some grub, and say hello to Curtis and Joe… they will be in the back making pico!
