Great Happy Hour All Day on the weekends

Service is great. Drinks are good. Appetizers for happy hour are fun. Really a fun place to hang out. Try to get a table near the front so you can watch the Boulder freak show!

Came here with a couple of girlfriends. Tried to come in for happy hour but missed it. Didn't mind a bit. Everything we had was amazing! Each Margarita we had was great. Had the Carne con Cerveza taco along with the Trio of Sopes....then ordered the Chile Rubbed Fish Taco. All so good! Will definitely be back! Service was great... More

Every dish our party of four ate had a dominant taste of either vinegar or sugar. The service was fine, but I don't consider those to be important parts of Mexican cuisine.

I eat or drink here at least once every 6 weeks. I order the cucumber-jalapeño coin style margarita every time bc it's so good. Perfect amount of spice. Their tacos are good and you can choose 3 different ones for a good variety, they are always very flavorful.mimfind their quesadillas to be very good too. I tend to go out... More

Great mexican food with a twist. We loved the duck nachos. The best take on nachos I have ever had with duck, goat cheese, and an asian sweet soy dressing! margs are a little weak

Great happy hour menu ( all afternoon on weekends), reasonably priced, well margaritas for $4 can't be beat. Tacos are perfect, green chili smothered cheese fries are delicious, the list goes on. Try this place.

Tahona has excellent margaritas, and I hope to return for more of their extensive tequila menu. Their happy hour snacks list is extensive. The fresh chips and spicy salsa were a great way to begin as we made the rest of our choices. We had excellent service, allowing us to order a bit at a time and continue to try... More

I would rate Tahona a lot higher if I was basing the review on margaritas and tequila alone. Those are quite enjoyable and although they might look on the small side in the short glass they pack a punch. They food is eh. Not very good. It is ok. Just know you are not going there for good mexican food.... More

This place was a ton of fun. Just a little bit off of the main Pearl Street walking mall, but still very lively. Outdoor seating great for people watching. Food was delicious...try the Queso Fundido and fish tacos.

If you're curious about Tequila, you can learn all about it at Tahona. Knowledgeable staff can steer you through their wall of Tequilas and Mezcals. Flights of Tequilas are helpful for comparison and you can sample hard-to-find or expensive ones. Fun for an after-dinner stop but their Mexican food is good too.

Thank Jschrier
