Openings and Closings

Zanitas Mexican is open for business in Boulder

Zanitas Mexican -- a fast-casual Mexican joint -- finally opened Wednesday at 1370 College Avenue on the Hill in Boulder.

Zanitas says it hopes to stand out in the world of fast-casual dining -- T|ACO, anyone? -- with a "chef-inspired" menu featuring tacos topped with mac and cheese, grilled burritos and "unadulterated margaritas."

Zanitas is now open daily from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. -- although hours may get stretched to accommodate an anticipated late-night crowd once University of Colorado students are back in town.

And in the meantime, lucky customers who visit the spot soon will be treated to free samples of certain menu items: queso dip that "mysteriously loses the unwanted fat," guacamole and deep-fried (yes, fried) chocolate chip cookies with a vanilla pudding dipping sauce.

Visit Zanitas Facebook page for more details.
