Stopped by here on a Saturday for drinks and snacks, but decided to have brunch instead. It was 1 pm and not overly busy. We were seated promptly and ordered a margarita while we waited for the others in our party to arrive. Highly recommend the pepper infused margarita. It's got a good kick! The waiter was attentive, however it... More

I was on a business trip in Boulder when we decided with my colleague to have some Mexican food. It was definitely one of the best Mexican meals I had. The staff is super friendly and the food is amazing. Definitely try it when you are in Boulder!

On Saturday afternoon around 1, we took a table on the covered patio, ordered drinks and food. The drinks — mercifully strong enough to mellow the irritation that followed — were more or less promptly delivered, but when it came to food, we waited and waited and waited. One adjacent table turned over completely, but our food was nowhere in sight...

I have lived and traveled all over the US, and these are by far some of the best tacos that I have had! Definitely will be going back!

Centro Mexican Kitchen is located right on the pedestrian mall and we had a great dinner there on a busy Saturday night. Centro has a great mix of indoor and outdoor seating w/ overhead eating. The menu features a great variety of $5 tacos. The chips are served toasty warm.

Sunday night is special at the Centro as your meal is accompanied by live Latin music and dancing. It appears to be so popular that dancers extend out to the sidewalk. The music and dancing create a backdrop to some great food. I had all three of the Perrones and they were excellent. My wife had the goat cheese-zucchini stuffed... More

The guacamole is GREAT as are the mojitos and bloody marys! As for a dish, juevos rancheros are deeelicious. Side note - as someone that doesn't care much for chorizo, I will say that they have the best non-greasy chorizo that I've ever had. Super nice wait staff and bar tenders!!

Three of us ate out four nights in Boulder and this was easily our best meal. We had a good selection from the menu and everything was excellent: the avocado salsa flight, stuffed poblano pepper, three tacos, and carne asada, plus margaritas and beer. The outdoor, sidewalk seating area makes the scene lively and fun. Highly recommended.

Good mexican eatery with friendly service. We had a booth on a Thursday evening and it was fairly busy. A little loud at times but that was due to the free flowing drinks at the booth next to us. In the heart of Pearl Street with all the shopping and eating, this is a nice place to take a break... More

In the area needed to stop for lunch. Picked the place only because it sounded acceptable to both of us. My husband had the green chili cheddar biscuits and chorizo sausage gravy. He said, "That was amazing and a very unique way to have biscuits and gravy." I had the Centro Cazuela, and it was a delightful culinary mix. Both... More
