“Great Mexican food”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

Authentic Mexican fair. It's always hot and the service is always great. It's not a big place-kinda cramped really, especially at dinnertime.
Great green chile and really good red enchilada sauce. The salsa is really good, too.
Not much for ambiance, but it's usually lively.

“Unique Mexican Experience”
Reviewed March 2, 2014

Tucked back in a "flex" office park a few miles from downtown Boulder. We live close and visit 2-3 times a month. Depending on your timing you might have to wait to get a seat. The layout is cramped and service can suffer a bit due to tight spaces and too many patrons. Still we have no issue as the food is great, the prices are excellent and the atmosphere is laid back. If you like hot go for the Efrain's burrito. My wife's a vegetarian and loves the Bean Tostada.

“A Boulder Original Honest Mexican Food”
Reviewed February 22, 2014 via mobile

I like Efrain's you know that you are not going in to some chain and this is Colorado Mexican a Food as it has been served for 400 years. the Rellenos are really good and I get them often because I can not tolerate much spice. I appreciate the guide to Hotness on the menu. The sizzling Tostadas are really good you will not go wrong with them .

“Delicious Mexican Food - Legacy of Colorado”
Reviewed November 11, 2013

There are a few locations, the one in Boulder is a little ways out from downtown, out on 63rd. But it's worth the drive. Lots of delicious sauces and dishes. Friendly staff, good salsa. Expect a 20-30 minute wait. Not open on Sundays. I love the chile verde, the blue corn enchiladas and the combo options.

“Good Mex, Large portions”
Reviewed October 20, 2013

I was pleased with the flavor and size of my burrito.
Staff was polite, but rushed and a little hard to track down.
Lunch is busy and hard to get seats after 11:45.
Our server was not entirely attentive, due to the crowd.
I had a tough time getting in and out in 45 minutes.
