Still one of our favorite places to dine in Boulder, despite the limited menu. The sauce on the fish tacos is inventive and heavenly. It's a fun, easy place to eat in a "town center" type of shopping experience. Great for a treat after an exhausting shop at McGuckin's Hardware nearby - perhaps THE hardware store in all the USA.

Everything was delicious! Chile relleno, tamale and grilled veggies were amazing. Chips and salsa fabulous, tilapia tacos great!

I went here only because it was close and I could walk, but the place was really packed but not too noisy. Great vibe. And the food seriously hot and interesting. Chips and guacamole were great with a local hoppy beer. Fried oysters fabulous, Sopes stick out in my mind too. Not afraid of the chili. Worth going out of... More

Since Zolo Grill is a bit pricey for my budget, I go for the happy hour. Great service and tasty food!

Zolo is conveniently located off Arapahoe at the end of a little shopping center. Indoor and outdoor dining are available in this cozy little spot. The food reminds me more of Santa Fe/Southwestern than Tex-Mex. The restaurant was quite busy with a lively noise level. Service was very good and our waitress was very attentive and informative. The chips were... More

Incredibly good, trendy Tex-Mex type of food. Great service, a little pricey but worth it. Good location.

I have been visiting this restaurant when I visit Boulder, usually annually. This is the first time I had lunch there, having previously only gone there for dinner. As usual, the food was very good and creative, and the service was efficient and friendly. Zolo is now added to my lunch destinations when I visit Boulder.

We were shopping mid-day on 29th street during Boulder move-in weekend, and I remembered the good TA reviews for Zolo. Our GPS had difficulty navigating the shopping center’s parking lots to find it and then parking was a challenge. It was worth the hunt. Although the restaurant was busy, we were seated quickly on the patio and our friendly server... More

We ended up having dinner there last night as I saw a review that said Zolo is kid friendly. As a mother of 3 little ones, it is impossible to find a place to do to dinner where the staff isn't glaring us down and other customers aren't complaining about the noise. I was a little weary of this place... More

Boulder is a small town with a lot of great restaurants. A seriously sophisticated palate for a college town. Many Cali transplants and they know their way around a copy of Gourmet or Bon Appetite. Met a friend for a quick lunch. Somewhat eclectic menu, reasonable service. Burger and fries was excellent. Lots of much more interesting things to pick.... More
