Centro is one of our favorite Sunday brunch spots. Make sure to hit it during their morning "Happy Hour" with nice price reductions on some of their items. As a mom with a celiac kid, they are very gluten-free friendly, and their Lillibee gluten-free pancakes...More

Had lunch here--sat at the bar. Mikey was our bartender. Very friendly and outgoing. My husband and I shared three tacos: the carnita, the spicy chicken, and the barbacoa. I liked the carnita the best, but they were all good, especially with some hot sauce....More

As Mexican food goes in Boulder - Centrica Mexican Kitchen is pretty good. The menu is limited but there are plenty of good drinks, out door or bar seating and the staff are friendly.

My husband and I stopped in on a whim. Happy hour prices are fantastic. We shared the nachos with chorizos. It was really tasty and very filling. Would definitely return!
