Fodor's Review

Traditional North Mexican food made from scratch is the specialty at this low-key place, which is tucked in an industrial area in east Boulder. The no-frills dining room puts the focus on food, like the savory chile verde (green chile) that Efrain cooks every day, and favorites like chimichangas, fajitas, and enchiladas made with fresh shredded beef and succulent pulled chicken. Pay attention to the menu's spicy scale since some of the food is blazing hot. A tart magarita served in a pint-size Mason jar can cool your tongue. Finish your meal with a crisp, hot sopapilla (a light, fried pastry served hot with honey).
