I love Zolo--they have the best chips and guacamole in town, their food is always fresh, flavorful and consistent. Service is always great. They really need more veg options. I love the tamales, but let's switch it up.

We've enjoyed Zolo over the years and I'm glad to say they're still producing quality meals and a nice atmosphere. I worked at Zolo for a short time back in 1994 so it's fun to go back once a while. The food is still very much in the same Santa Fe style found when they started. The red and green... More

Varied but solid Mexican menu. A lot classier than most "Mexican" restaurants. Food is very good if not great. Typically offers some very good specials so there's something always new to try.

Definitely a place where you'll see a lot of locals. I had been here about 3 years ago for a party and it was great. This time , 2 weeks ago, some stuff was awesome, some was eh. The butternut squash soup was outstanding. I had oysters which were great last time, this time they were overcooked and I did... More

I went with a friend and we shared two different brunch meals. The server was excellent and went beyond the call of duty as we divided the meals and wanted our eggs cooked differently. The food was very yummy and I liked the variety that the menu offered. We even scored with a two for one coupon!

We made an impromptu visit to Zolo for brunch today and it was FABulous! Hubby ordered the Breakfast Skillet and a cup of coffee.His choice was superb: what a great blending of flavors. I had the Duck Confit Hash......another wow. Both dishes were $11.00 each......service was attentive......portions were generous. We'll be back: sooner than later! Please note that the 5*... More

Service was fine and friendly, otherwise, I would have given this review one star. I am not a fan of salted, over-seasoned, spicy food, but the "Breakfast Skillet" item on the brunch menu was flavorless. Ingredients supposedly included goat cheese as well as other blended cheeses. Could not taste any cheese. The only taste which came through was a preponderance... More

Jumped into Zolo Grill for lunch on a snowy day. My husband had tamales which were vegetarian and I had the tortilla soup. Both were excellent! Our server was courteous and prompt and knew when to check in!

When I used to live in Boulder and then on numeroussubsequent visits I've eaten at Zolo many, many times, and thought it was above the pack. Now, I feel like something happened as the last two visits were unsatisfactory. Had to return drinks two visits ago, and this time the food (two smoked chicken salads) was just mediocre. Lot of...
