Four of us had lunch in this large restaurant in eastern Boulder. It does not take reservations, but we were seated after about a ten-minute wait. Unfortunately, nothing else happened during the next 20 minutes except that we were given menus and two of us...More

This is a very popular Mexican restaurant on the east edge of Boulder, just off Arapahoe. Waits can be long for dinner in the summer, but they do allow you to enjoy your Margarita in the small area outside. In the winter, you may have...More

Really enjoyed visit to this traditional Mexican eatery. Starting with chips and saucy and cold drinks including Mexican beers on tap and excellent Margaritas everything was top notch. This is not a fancy place. Very laid back, good food and good service. Watch the menu...More
