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

I was on a business trip to Boulder and had been poring over a laptop all day. Having O.D.'d on bar food and supermarket sandwiches for much of the last week, I decided to treat myself. Zolo's was nearby and it had been pretty good without costing too much on a previous visit so I strolled in near the end... More

Loved the unique drinks and summer atmosphere sitting outside here. My husband had homemade tamales that were outstanding and I had grilled fish taco's that were also wonderful. If you have room for desert get the Churro's. So tasty! My husband barely shared.

I was looking for a steak and online Zolo had their Flatiron steak listed. When I got there, it was replaced with the Hanger Steak, which seems to be the rage in Boulder right now (almost every restaurant I ate at offered a variation of this). So, I ordered it. It's not for the feint of heart - a very... More
