General Manager Christian Pinon wants locals to feel like they’re having a meal with family and friends when they show up at Efrain’s. He said some of his waiters have been with the restaurant for 20 years, so they know the customers quite well. Customers take time to let Pinon know how much they appreciate the friendly faces and top-notch service. The top selling entre – chimichanga. “It has so many flavors, the meat itself is well seasoned. Plus the pork green chili, sour cream and gauc, the flavors come together harmoniously.” Pinon extends his gratitude to Boulder residents who made the award possible. “We want to give you a huge thanks for voting for us and the continued support during these difficult times. To see our hard work is being appreciated and recognized means the world to us.” 1630 63rd St., #10, Boulder, 303.440.4045, efrainsrestaurant.com.
