We sat out on the patio which looks directly at the Flatirons.
Beautiful evening.
Great food.

We enjoyed lunch on the patio. We had the green rice and beans and a choke salad. Both were great. Good service to top it off.

First time back since reopening and new menu and everything was delicious! They were accommodating to my ridiculous allergies and the drinks were spot on. Great experience, a Boulder staple you must support!

Wonderful food as s as always. It appeared as if there was a staff shortage as our server was running all around and had quite a few tables to take care of. Usually much more attentive. We arrived exactly when they opened up at 4P with reservations and only one couple in front of us. I suspect this was a problem for that day, Sunday the 30th

Good variety of food. Mexican and more tradiotional like ribs and fish with a mexican twist. Peach grumble great, for desert, very small slice of chocolate cake so that portion not good value, But overall very good value and xorn bread to start wonderful. Service started off great but when it got bisy inside sort of forget about us. We collected plates and out them at the end of our table, had to go in to ask about deserts also had to go in to ask for the bill. I think they were short staffed.

As I've come to expect at Zolo, the food and service were well above average. We shared the corn fritters and I had the chili salad, both were delicious. As was the complimentary cornbread, fabulous! Only wish I'd had room for banana cream pie. Next time!

Very happy to see Zolo’s reopen. Patio seating was nicely spaced. About the only negative was the abbreviated menu. Prepandemic, they had tasty and spicy soups. They only had gazpacho. I’m sure the menu will expand as customers return.

Zolo used to be great but they have changed their format away from Tex Mex. They don’t have the amazing homemade guacamole and chips anymore. The burger was raw, the ribs were dry and overcooked and mostly fatty. Needed to flag down the server to get drinks started. We were ignored for a long time after we were sat. Margs were in short glasses and full of ice so they consisted of about 3 sips. Been there many times and will probably not go again. Disappointed since they used to be so good.

Super good food! Great to see them open again! Campfire margaritas and chicken enchiladas with an egg on it are my go to. They were very good with covid awareness and the tables inside and out are well spaced out.

Great service and an excellent table. With limited menu options, variety at the table was limited. Skirt steak was great. Enchiladas ok but pricy. Our chile relleno appetizer was excellent, but with one small pepper, not a good value for the price.

Due to Covid we had to wait 35 minutes before getting seated for our reservation. No problem at all. We understand the challenges. However our waiter seemed to forget we were there and it took another 30 minutes to get first drinks. The food was then fast and really excellent! I love this place, the menu and prices are very fair. Will return many times!

They changed their menu and are no longer a Mexican restaurant. We went for my birthday and the waitress was pretty annoyed at my group for all the questions we were asking due to the changed menu. Additionally she was very sassy when we asked for “guacamole” and corrected us stating it’s actually some guacamole goddess thing on the menu. Overall Zolo has changed a lot and is no longer the restaurant I used to love
