Do not miss the Chili Verde Burrito – Efrain's has captured my wife's and my heart for our favorite restaurant in the Denver area. That's a strong statement, because I like food, and Mexican food especially. Don't come here expecting to have your every need catered to at 7PM on a Saturday night. That's not what this place is about. They're packed almost every night...and for a good reason: The chili verde burrito is the finest Mexican plate in all the land, and the Hornitos margarita rocks. They make the margaritas the right way- with tequila, Cointreau, and lime juice. They don't water them down with tons of fake mixers.
The staff is friendly and on average we find the service prompt and efficient. Sometimes when they're busy it might take a while to get a drink or take your order, but that's not the norm and when I have dinner with my wife, I'm in no hurry anyway. The chili verde burrito is worth it!
they used to be good – I was a big fan of Efrain's but recently the service and food have slipped. Just ate there tonight and the waiter didn't stop by to refill a single drink at our 5 person table. The chicken was dry and the flavors just weren't what they used to be. All five of us got something different and only one person was half satisfied with the quality.
Good food! – Usually pretty busy, and a simple place. But its a pretty good food actually. They could maybe have a better variety of burritos or enchilada's, there were a few interesting items on the menu. They could maybe use a little less sour in the margaritas. Service was good and friendly. Overall, very good.
Great Little Spot – I've been coming to this restaurant with my family since I was in highschool. The owner is very friendly as is the staff. I have nothing bad to say about this place. Yes, it's small and noisy and finding a place to park can be difficult. But the food and service is totally worth it. My favorite is the blue corn chicken enchilades. They make my mouth water...
Authentic! – Yes, it's loud. Yes, it's always busy.That's because it's good! The menu lets you know how hot the food is, there are vegetarian options for my stepdaughter, the Efrain's Special burrito will make you cry with delight over the flavor of the hottest chile verde north of Santa Fe! The servers are fast and friendly. If you're looking for chain restaurant food, do NOT go to Efrains. This place wasn't rated Best of Boulder for nothing!
EXCELLENT!! – Not sure where the negative review is coming from. Perhaps they didn't call ahead and some group bypassed them. This place is most excellent. Very authentic. The service is excellent. The food is so tasty, my mouth waters thinking about it. The library is a storehouse of international treasure.
Not for me – If you like to wait over an hour and then have the hostess seat someone who arrived after you did, then this restaurant is for you but not for me. I found the food average and the service OK. We like La Estrellita or for more gringo style, Three Maragaritas
