Have to be in Boulder in a few weeks and might be able to free myself for a meal. Anyone have any recommendations?

If you like Mexican food, you can't go wrong with Efrains. http://maps.google.com/maps/place?hl=en&safe=active&um=1&ie=UTF-8&q=efrains+in+boulder+co&fb=1&gl=us&hq=efrains&hnear=0x876b8d4e278dafd3:0xc8393b7ca01b8058,Boulde r,+CO&cid=3676333646120466013

And if you like it hot, get a bowl of the green chili. Some of the best I've ever had. :thumb:

There are a ton of cool places downtown on Pearl street and around the area. I also reccomend you go to Lucile's http://www.luciles.com/ if you like Creole.

Thanks, Bigdog! Went to Efrains and it was fabulous. I couldn't decide what to get and finally went with the chicken chimichanga. I grew up in Tucson and this is the food I remember growing up with that is hard to find now, except it was just a bit more picante (but not close to what I ate in New Mexico). At least when I've visited Tucson lately, the food has changed and I find it disappointing. The only disappointing thing in this meal was that they put some vinegar sauce on the shredded lettuce and it was too sour for me to eat. I also begged them to throw in half an order of ribs, but they wouldn't do that either. I don't know if I'll have a chance to go back this trip, but it is one of the best restaurants I've been to in a long time. Incidentally, it is a dark, rainy Wednesday night. Efrains closes at 9:00pm. At 8:30pm, when I left, there were still 8 people at the door waiting for tables.

Glad you enjoyed it, but did you try the green chili? I buy it by the quart to take home with me.

Also, we always go the the origional one in Longmont. Worth the drive.:cool:

I've tried a few times to eat there, but it's always been closed in the evenings I've gone. It's a pity, because it's just a short walk from where I'm staying. I'll check again this trip if I have time.

It was poured over the chimichanga, not enough, but it was nice. Did not make it to Longmont. Just followed the map on the link you gave me.

I just order a large bowl of it and chow down. It has large chunks of pork in it too. (plus it does a great job of cleaning out my colon) ;)

If you find yourself in Boulder again, here's a good guide from my favorite Buff's site.
