    Legit & amazing Mexican food. Sub chili for green salsa for a veggie option. (Usually w the rellenos)

    The Efrain Burrito. They asked Hot or Mild? I said Anything in between? They brought me half face-melting hot, half mild. All DELISH.

    Let's be honest. It's not real Mexican food and it's not even that good. Not sure how this wins best in boulder, but then again there isn't many options in terms of real Mexican.

    Anything smothered in pork green chile is a treat. Their margaritas are on the strong side!

    Chimichanga is so delicious but kinda small. Get 2 or be sure to get rice and beans as a side
