This restaurant does not look like much, but the food is incredibly delicious . The dishes are large, you may not be able to finish your meal.

Let's start with the understanding that while the People's Republic of Boulder wants to pretend that it is politically correct, multicultural, middle class, has affordable housing, etc., etc. However, the reality is far different.

I've been coming to this Efrains since moving to Boulder. It's super casual in an out of the way location but has great food with fabulously low prices. (Good portions too!) I was told the blue corn chicken enchiladas were to die for - and...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.

While the food is acceptable, the service is quite lacking. During a lunch visit the server made minimal contact with us, only enough to obtain our order, deliver the order and present the check.
