Zolo Southwestern Grill

2525 Arapahoe Ave. Boulder, CO 80302 | Boulder | 303-449-0444

Location Description:

Loud Latin beats hang over Zolo's large, dark dining room and expansive patio, which are populated by a Boulder crowd that includes students and families alike. It's part of the Big Red F restaurant group, which includes several raucous, cocktail-themed concepts along the Front Range. Southwestern fare rules at dinner and weekend brunch here, and happy-hour deals keep the bar busy during the afternoon. The best reason to go to Zolo, though, is for the 150 varieties of tequila, navigated with the help of the agave-savvy staff, who work both the dining room and the bar, suggesting the right selection for sippers, shots and margaritas.
