This isn't expensive yuppy Mexican like Agave, Cantina Laredo, or Zolos. Instead you get good quantities of delicious meals. The drinks are served in Ball jars and are a much better value that those others. It can be crowded and you will have to wait...More

The restaurant is located in an commercial area but has GREAT food and margaritas. I had the beef and bean burrito. Make sure and have it smothered on the green chili. It is a little hot but very good.

They have a good variety for meat lovers and not so many choices for vegetarians. The food is delicious but too greasy . It is too busy for lunch and there is always at least 30 min wait time .

Very good Mexican food. We started with conqueso cheese dip and they give you enough for 8 people. This bowl was overflowing and absolutely delicious. I had a burrito smothered in green chili. It was very good but quite hot. My husband had a Chimichanga...More

Way off in the industrial section of town is a small Mexican restaurant with incredible margaritas and food. The wait is long and the place is always packed and it's worth the wait. Sure you eat your week's worth of calories in one meal but...More

We traveled to Boulder for an oil change @ Fischer Honda/Kia, and looked up somewhere to eat that was close. Efrains was almost within walking distance, although we drove there after the oil change! It was in a small "Industrial" area and we totally missed...More
