Zolo Grill has one of the best menus in Boulder. We usually go to Zolo Grill for brunch or dinner. Service is always good and the food choices are awesome. Do not have to worry about parking which is an added plus. In the winter we enjoy sitting in the enclosed covered porch or on the open porch during warmer weather with the georgous mountain view.

I absolutely LOVE Zolo! It's a good thing it's a 40 minute drive away, otherwise I'd be there every week!

Found you with my App
Never would have found this without my Open Table App and I am glad I had a chance to read the reviews, see the photographs on FoodSpotter and have a good feel for the place before I walked in the door.
The Chicken Enchilada was good more than enough food...though I did start with some chips and salsa.
Everyone was really very nice - great when you are traveling to feel welcome.
Server was "Mikey" and he was excellent and friendly as well
I will return

Zolo always delivers a great meal - love the Zoloritas and the Xmas Enchiladas! Our service wasn't as good as it has been in the past - not bad, but we were never offered second drinks (which I probably didn't need anyway!) Our birthday party for six was outstanding!

This is without a doubt the most incredible mexican restaurant we have ever been to. It is absolutely worth the drive from Denver just to eat there. However, I wish they would open a Zolo in Denver!!

One of my favorites!
Great drinks - love their margaritas and the best fish tacos anywhere. Great happy hour - try the chorizo stuffed dates and the chips and guac. Love it!

Great service - okay food
The service at Zolo is always frieNdly! Warm and efficient. They have great mAnagemeNt. The food is variable. The fish tacos and the duck breast were tasty but extremely greasy as we're the side greens. We felt uncomfortable after the meal. Great service, more attention to food.

Great Mothers Day spot
Love the place, the food is great, the staff is efficient and friendly and the Banana Cream pie is a must.
5/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
We had a great lunch at Zolo. The food (blue corn oysters, chicken enchiladas, Zolo burger) was delicious. Service was a little slow but the place was busy. Our favorite lunch spot in Boulder.

If you're looking for an amazing dining experience and high quality hand created meals ... this is the best.
The house margs are awesome - appetizers fresh and scrumptious.
Check out the banana cream pie!!!! Holy Cow!!!!

Zolo's Great for Sunday Brunch!
Give Zolo's a try for a super Sunday lunch and brunch! We sat on the patio on a lovely day with family and enjoyed the food, drinks and witty menu. For a special treat, try out the chicken enchiladas, and you can't beat the tableside guacamole. Of note: the food is spicy, in a nice way! We are planning to head back soon with a group of friends. Young, happy and outgoing waitstaff complete the picture!

Great food and top notch service
All five of us loved our dining experience at Zolo. From the margaritas to the apps, entrees, and desserts, everything was perfect. Our server and his helpers were attentive but not intrusive. Great job!
The only drawback is the smallness of the bar. Zolo has an amazing variety of tequilas, and it would be great to have a larger bar area, or some bar tables to enjoy some of that tasty tequila. Space is limited in the current location; maybe a move is in order?

We had a guest who cannot eat spicy food ( did not know this)- wait person did an excellent job of doing everything possible to find something that could work. When dish was too spicy, waitress gladly took it back. Absolutly great service and attitude.

Haute cuisine, not tex-mex
The tamales, both the blue corn and bean ones on the regular menu and the special ones with spinach and poblanos, were not only artfully presented but also distinctive from one another and delectable. The flavors were fresh and both comfort food (the blue corn) and spicy (the special) yet the spices and flavors were all distinctive and not overwhelming, making a perfect combination of tastes and textures. The coin margaritas are always reliably good, and the micro green salad was refreshing and fresh--delicious and a nice light complement to the other food. A wonderful dining experience. Service was attentive, friendly and not intrusive. We appreciated our waitresses recommendation on the food--she was spot on.

I love this restaurant. Good food, fun atmosphere!

The best place in Boulder for great food with a Southwestern flare. Plenty of options for gluten-free diners.
7/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had one of the best dinners at Zolos Saturday night. It was Fried Catfish: one of the specials for the evening. Plated beautifully, the fish was tender and moist. Lots of wonderful vegetables. Topped off the evening with banana cream pie dessert!!
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Love the Empanadas!
The restaurant was quiet on this summer afternoon and we sat partially outside in the shade. As always, the empanadas were delicious, as was my friend's vegetarian tamales. Great service.

Always a great meal at Zolo.
Always a great meal at Zolo. Our birthday gathering all loved it.

All hope, no harvest
When I heard of this restaurant, dreams of Sopapillas and the Coyote Cafe flashed through my mind. Reviews were excellent, and I reserved a table of 8.
What I found: a really nice waitstaff, good at their job and enthusiastic; so-so food ... though my duck was moist & very good, most of the 8 just pushed their food around; noise noise noise; no Sopapillas; nothing really to rave about. I anticipated chile brilliance and flavor. I didn't find it.

Come for Happy Hour,Stay for Dinner
I had heard great things about the Happy Hour at Zolo's so our group decided to come early for Happy Hour and stay for dinner. It was a good decision. The HH menu was concise but offered a wide range of drink and appetizers. We were primed and ready for dinner about an hour later. Everyone in the group enjoyed their dinner selections. Our waiter was excellent. One thing, if you are in a foursome, opt for a table instead of a booth.

The food is fantastic and the service was awesome! Complete that with the ambiance of Boulder scenery and it doesn't get much better than that!

Always a great meal!
I have eaten here several times and I always try something new. The chicken enchiladas are awesome. This time around I had the tortilla encrusted tuna. It is the special on Wednesdays. It was soooo good!
9/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
I took my friend to Zolo Grill for her Birthday. We were there on Wednesday evening and of course te the tuna special. It was and always is outstanding!! Zoloritas was our drink of choice. I love Zolos. It is one of my favorite restaurants. My good friend loves it too.
9/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food good, noise bad
Appetizers were so-so, entree was great (duck confit). I would eat there more often if not for the noise level. The acoustics at Zolos is awful, which makes for a very high noise level, very frenetic atmosphere....which puts a damper on the whole experience.
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Lovely outdoor patio area
I took a friend to brunch here and it was my first time eating at Zolo Grill. The service was wonderful, the food tasted delicious, and the patio area was great for us to enjoy a nice fall day. Prices are reasonable and with a reservation we zipped right in.

Always great food, good service and a great energy to the place. Love going there for business lunches and with groups. The Duck tacos still rule!

Very good, very interesting menu
This is one of the first restaurants I ate at in Boulder when our kids moved to Boulder 8 years ago for school. I frankly didn't remember it as being that great and didn't return until this past weekend. Either the restaurant has changed a great deal in the last 8 years, or I've wasted a lot of time and money at other restaurants in Boulder -- we had a great meal!
We had four different entrees for four people. All were outstanding! If you enjoy pork, don't miss the smoked pork steak. Juicy and flavorful!

I am a big fan of Zolo. I had an excellent burger, cooked just right and so did my lunch companion. Service was excellent. I always have fun at Zolo.

Great Saturday Brunch
Made a reservation for the "new" Saturday Brunch. Our reservation at 10:45 was a bit ahead of the main clientel, but our experience was very nice. Our server was friendly, helpful, and attentive with good suggestions. She suggested churros appetizers that were excellent. My Southwestern Eggs Benedict hadchorizo sausage, which I often find as hit or miss for me; however, the Zolo's version was the best I've tasted. Excellent Brunch. I recommend it.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our family of four ate brunch at Zolo and loved it. Everything that we ordered was delicious and unique. We will definitely eat there again soon.
10/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
A wonderful restaurant. Only downside is the high noise level. No sound absorbers. Hard to hear the person across your own table.
10/17/2013 12:00:00 AM

The kitchen forgot to deliver our salad. It came late but was comp'd. Enchiladas were excellent.

The food, service and entire experience was perfect. The Zolo Grill never disappoints!

nice selection and good service
a group of 5 enjoyed the varied menu; we told our server we had to be done by a certain time for an evening event and she not only had our food on time but reminded us about the hour and brought the check in plenty of time. We'll be back soon.
11/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Don't go here to eat traditional mexican food. That's not what it's about. They have a delicious happy hour menu and great specials. They use a lot of squash and sweet potatoes innovatively. Yum! Margaritas are deliscious. Banana cream pie is out of this world.
11/19/2013 4:00:00 PM
Had a wonderful evening.
specialty drinks are good,
both the service and the food was amazing.

Great Brunch and Dinners
At brunch, it was the best "alternative" Eggs Benedict I've ever had!
The guacamole and chips are not to be missed.
Crispy Duck Tacos were excellent!
Casa Salad is Great!
It is a solid favorite when I come to Boulder. We ate there twice on my last 5-day trip to visit the kids at Thanksgiving.
