Hungry and hot, the four of us wanted a place to eat and watch people wander up and down the street. This was the only place that had a patio-like table. The food was tasty, we all got tacos and a beer. The chips and salsa starter was great as it came with three sauces of differing heat which was... More

Go for Happy Hour and grab a table outside for the people watching. Tasty tequila options and tapas.

Everything was fast and delicious. The mojitos are super yummy. I loved the vegetarian tacos! The tamales as starters are great. Also had the chicken enchiladas and chicken tacos - all excellent. Definitely recommend this place

Have been to Tahona Tequila Bistro many times. Choice of many tequilas. Waiters, waitresses, and bar tenders are very knowledgeable about tequilas. Tamales are awesome. Can make a meal out of 2-3 tamales. Enchiladas & tacos are good. First chicken quesadilla was great. Next one not so good because of sauce. Have small plate specials each night that include a...

This is a great place to go for drinks and snacks before heading to other Boulder adventures. House marg is $4, excellent street tacos (try the carnita) for $2.50 then good chips, salsas and guacamole. Tip: it looks busier than it is. The outside seating and front section are usually packed, but go inside and there likely will be tables.

If you're looking for a nice place for some great margs, this is the one. We went for happy hour and were very happy with everything. Margs were good (including the infused tequila-- blueberrry/basil-- yummy!), apps were good, prices were good, service was good, ambiance was good. No complaints!

We were late getting into town and Pearl Street was as busy as ever. We didn't know Tahoma's but fancied Mexican food and they were advertising fancy margaritas. Since we were late we took a table towards the back. Tables were being taken a way and it was obvious that some sort of dance floor was being prepared. The waiter... More

This bar is lovely, the staff is wonderful and the drinks are amazing - my issue? Apparently we were being "too loud" and the manager come and gave us a frowny face with the news that we'd need to keep it down or leave. Sure, they love you when you're racking up your bill to over $300 but then they... More

I ordered one of their specialty margarita and it was tiny and very unimaginative for being a "specialty" margarita. Also the happy hour tacos were tiny and not very good. Meh, it was less then average. The saving grace was our friendly server.

Tahona has been a mainstay of downtown for 10 years. They are famous for their wide variety of tasty margaritas and best in class guacamole. The food is a mix of traditional and modern Mexican cuisine. Friday and Saturday nights they have a DJ and it gets crazy - lots of students.
