Pica's Mexican Taqueria in Louisville, A Lovely Addition to Downtown!

Pica's Mexican Taqueria in Boulder has been a staple lunch go-to for me since it's opening in 2010. It's nestled just between my husband's office and mine, so monthly I get the want to escape to Pica's text. We've definitely honed in on our menu favorites, one being the tostada that comes with a heaping mound of lettuce, cabbage, and tomatoes that always leaves me just properly satiated. I also love their soups, tortilla or posole. Pica's has that lovely freshly prepared vibe and the flavors are complex, but well rounded which is my kind of Mexican.

When I was invited to bring my family into the new Louisville location to enjoy a dinner, I jumped at the opportunity. We were thrilled to hear Pica's had expanded and knew it would be a perfect addition to the restaurant scene in downtown. Having the opportunity to experience the dinner menu, which is different than the Boulder location, I decided to branch out from my usual order. I went with the Chiles Rellenos which is a Platos Especiales. For me rellenos are always a staple order to really measure the Mexican food experience from place to place. The batter was just crisp enough and the cheese inside the chile was just perfectly melted when my fork cut into it. I definitely was happy to have branched out!

We also enjoyed in house freshly made chips and guacamole, a lovely margarita, the girls had their favorites, a chicken burrito (kids meal) and a chicken quesadilla. Beyond the food, Pica's offers fast and friendly counter service which I appreciate when dining out with my family. I feel it's important to mention, they also have a really lovely and well appointed dining space, the attention to detail definitely sets it apart from other counter service Mexican restaurants.

Thanks so much Pica's for having us in.
