Mexican Restaurants in Boulder

Boulder's growing Latino population has done truly wonderful things for the town's cuisine. Whether you're looking for Tex-Mex, traditional Mexican or Salvadoran cuisine, or just a tasty margarita, Boulder is the place to find it.

Efrain's is a family restaurant with authentic Mexican food and strong, tasty margaritas. With a more upscale atmosphere, Agave offers interesting dishes like Nopal Relleno (fresh cactus topped with chicken, lime juice, and cheese) and guacamole prepared table-side.

Centro Latin Kitchen on the west end of the Pearl Street Mall offers cuisine inspired by the street foods of Central and South America, with big, bright, bold flavors. Located just off the Mall is Rio Grande, which serves up tasty Tex Mex and famously potent margaritas.

Although Zolo's menu is inspired by flavors of the American Southwest and the seasonal availability of Colorado-grown ingredients, their dishes of empanadas, sope, and tamales show the Latin influences of this restaurant's cuisine. Their chefs use traditional techniques such as brining, smoking, charring, and roasting -- along with over 15 varieties of chiles -- to achieve bold, vibrant flavors.

For more unusual fare, Pupusas Sabor Hispano and Zudaka are little hole-in-the-wall spots in North Boulder offering Salvadorian and Venezuelan/Colombian food, respectively.
