Habanero’s

Habanero’s is a little Mexican quick service restaurant now located where Tacqueria mi Barrio and Tacqueria Tamayo used to be.  I’ve been there 3 or 4 times now, and have enjoyed it every time. They have a larger staff than before.  Although the main cook who used to work at the previous two places is… Continue reading Habanero’s

Little Anita’s

Todd’s briefest restaurant review so far: Little Anita’s now has a store in Broomfield, where the Burger King near Miramonte and 287 used to be.  It’s a chain of New Mexican restaurants.  I like the food, and they serve Mexican Coke.  I don’t like that they switched to full service.  For a place like this,… Continue reading Little Anita’s

Ooka Sushi & Asian Cuisine

There are a lot of restaurants popping up with this pan-Asian theme.  The menus all seem to be pretty similar, offering dishes from Thailand, China, Japan, Vietnam, and sometimes Korea.  Ooka is Broomfield’s latest.  They’ve got pan-Asian down, but also have a respectable sushi bar. Ooka is located in front of Safeway, in the old… Continue reading Ooka Sushi & Asian Cuisine

Taru Sushi & Grill

Beth and I have visited Taru Sushi & Grill twice now, once for supper and once for lunch.  I wish I could say this restaurant was in Broomfield, but alas it’s in Westminster. The original Taru was in Orlando, but they’ve either moved or expanded to Westminster.  The menu is extensive.  In addition to the… Continue reading Taru Sushi & Grill

it’s hard to find Sunday brunch in Lafayette

Oh woe!  Lafayette, Colorado has a lot of great dining options, and possibly more variety than Broomfield.  But there’s a dearth of restaurants serving Sunday brunch, it seems. Beth and I set out this morning around 11:00 to try to find brunch in Lafayette.  We knew Casa Alvarez had what used to be a well-known… Continue reading it’s hard to find Sunday brunch in Lafayette

Corona’s Mexican Grill

There’s a new Mexican restaurant in town, on 136th.  It’s Corona’s.  I went there for lunch recently with some coworkers and tried a few things.  But I haven’t been back, so this review is going to be a bit short. First, they have a website, though it’s still under construction as I’m writing this. They… Continue reading Corona’s Mexican Grill

Chico’s Mexican Food

Can you believe there’s a Mexican restaurant in Broomfield that I haven’t reviewed?  There is, and it’s called Chico’s Mexican Food.  I’d seen the place for years, but I always thought that side of the street was considered Westminster.  But it’s Broomfield. So I went in recently with a coworker for some lunch, and was… Continue reading Chico’s Mexican Food

we’re getting a real butcher shop!

I just read this from the Broomfield Enterprise: http://www.broomfieldenterprise.com/news/2009/may/30/broomfield-hooks-butcher-shop-with-tax-incentives Herb’s Meat and Specialty Foods, which has been a Boulder fixture since 1976, will relocate to the Depot Hill Shopping Center at the corner of U.S. 287 and 10th Avenue. High rents and a shifting customer base are forcing the independently owned butcher out of its… Continue reading we’re getting a real butcher shop!

Bombay Palace

Bombay Palace is Broomfield’s newest Indian restaurant.  A few weeks ago, it took over the empty location where Buddha Indian Cuisine once stood, next door to La Casita de Durango and across Nickel Street from Target. I’ve eaten at Bombay Palace three times now, twice for lunch and once for supper.  Their lunch buffet is… Continue reading Bombay Palace

Bagali’s

The concept of Bagali’s is very enticing to me.  I really, really wanted to like this place.  But after two visits, I just don’t think I’ll go back. First off, Bagali’s is “New Orleans Inspired Italian” which sounds like an interesting concept to me.  And after visiting the oldest pizza restaurant on the north shore… Continue reading Bagali’s
