Tex-Mex in Boulder/Denver?

monopod | Apr 21, 2011 10:33 AM

My dad's coming to town with an interesting request: he wants good Tex-Mex food. NOT Mexican - he's very specific about that - but Tex-Mex. I, frankly, don't really know what that means; I know he doesn't want plates of enchiladas with beans and rice covered in cheese on the side (i.e. Casa Alvarez, Efrains, the former Juanitas), but beyond that I'm not sure what exactly distinguishes Tex-Mex food from Mexican, or from Southwestern generally.

I'm kind of thinking something like Zolo Grill, maybe, but we've already been there several times so I'd like to try some place else. Any advice?

Casa Alvarez
3161 Walnut St, Boulder, CO 80301

Zolo Grill
2525 Arapahoe Ave Unit H1, Boulder, CO 80302
