The Costillas and cheese enchiladas are amazing. Great drink choices as well. My favorite Mexican in Boulder.

Amazed by the food in this place. We went per a recommendation and when we got there the place was packed - line out the door, had to wait 30 minutes to get a seat. But, IT WAS WORTH IT. Smothered burrito was heaven and the traditional margaritas where awesome! Amazing food comes out of this place!

While I live in the New York City area, I have been traveling to Boulder, CO for business and pleasure for over 25 years. I have been enjoying the food at Efrains 2 for a little over 20 years. Make no bones about it, this restaurant is not fancy. It is housed in an old house on the outskirts of... More

Our server was not the friendliest and he got my order wrong. The restaurant was really cold inside. Food was okay, definitely not great.

Tasty inexpensive Mexican food. All I had was green chile but the promised tastes of other dishes from my fellow diners disappeared too quickly for me to have the opportunity to try them. Patrons were not exclusively over educated gringos. Ribs are reputedly excellent. Sadly, no leftovers at our table. Friendly service with full bar. A small nondescript place slightly... More

This place is difficult to find, however you will be so happy when you get there. I am writing about the Boulder location. Seems there might have been a split in the family and there are other locations in nearby towns with the same name. You will know you are in the right place when you have to stand in... More

I had been there before and felt the food was so-so. I work about a block away and had forgotten my lunch, so I stopped. I ordered a smothered beef and bean burrito with everything on it including sour cream and guac, and a pepsi. 14.95! Anyway, opened it up at work to find a enchilada sauce and huge chunks... More

Went there over the weekend to celebrate our son's birthdays, since they both like Mexican food, and we had just been told how awesome this place is, so we had to try it. We also wanted to talk to the Mgr. about poss. catering our oldest son's wedding rehearsal dinner, and what better way to know if you want to... More

This place is packed every night of the week for good reason. But you won't understand why unless you order something with the green chile like the smothered Efrain's burrito. Actually the ribs are also outstanding. It's a cheap, tacky dive and we like it that way. Half the price of the Rio and more authentic than some Tex-Mex baloney.... More

Tasty green chili, positively terrible service. Just pay attention, please. I think the server must have been somebody's son, if you catch my meaning
