We were passing through Boulder and happened upon Tahona on the Pearl Street Mall. The place looked lovely and everyone's food looked good (the food we could see on the tables at their cafe) so we decided to stop in. It turned out it was...More

Tahona is one of my favorite places for happy hour. Margaritas, tacos, and the best queso you've ever had makes this one of my favorite places to come whenever I'm in town.

This is a fun place to go in the summer. The doors are open and you can sit outside and have some mojitos and tacos. The vegetarian tacos are really good and I'm not vegetarian.

Found this restaurant on way home from a ski trip. Had a fabulous dinner. The trio of salsa was different and very tasty. The Roasted Chicken Enchiladas were fabulous...not your usual sauce.

We decided to go for lunch on a Sunday. Great food, service and music while seeing the Rockies. The food was really tasty with a great balance of flavors. After 10 years in Texas, this is a fantastic place!

A quiet Thursday night found us at Tahona for some Mexican. 1980s rock playing in the background was a nice touch. The smoked duck nacho plate could have been dinner. Lots of duck and very tender and tasty. Wife tried Carne Ahumada taco... daily smoked...More
