Rincon del Sol - Boulder

This place seems to be one of those overlooked gems in Boulder. I know that we tend to forget it's there. We wanted to try Agave, a new Mexican place that has opened in the old Gondolier space on north 28th Street but the wait was 45-50 minutes at 7:15 on Saturday night. So, we headed over to Rincon del Sol for about the third time and were not disappointed.

First, it's warm! A nice surprise considering that many eateries seem that ratcheting back the thermostat will not only save them money but earn them honorary Al Gore brownie points. Rincon has a fantastic tequila list. We began with with Cabo Wabo and Casa Noble reposdos which are dynamite and followed with "original" Margaritas which were OK but not spectacular.

Chips, a fantasic salsa and bean dip showed up complimentary at the table along with water. We began wth perfect chicken flautas as an appetizer. Main courses were the enchilada plate and carnitas del puercao. Enchiladas were good but the carnitas were fantastic. We passed on dessert.

All in all, I highly recommend Rincon del Sol. It beats by miles the overpriced, overhyped Cantina Laredo in 29th Street and is much better than Juanitas or the other myriad of Mexican places in Boulder.
