Reader: Boulder is developing a glut of "me too" restaurants

Zanitas Mexican

opened last week in Boulder, offering "chef-inspired" menu that gives a new twist to tacos. Or so its owners hope, since


opened nearby this spring.

Says monopod:

I love that they're trying to shake up the standard fast-cas burrito model with grilled burritos, mac and cheese tacos, fried cookies w/pudding dip (that last one sounds especially awesome), and such. Boulder is developing a glut of "me too" restaurants that just copy other successful places in town, usually with diminishing returns, so I'm all for some creativity. Hopefully the quality lives up to the concept and the prices don't keep the masses away.


Is Zanitas different enough to escape the "me too" label? What concepts are overdone in Boulder?
