The "Always Packed" Casa Alvarez in Boulder Is Now Closed

The former Mexican restaurant's space at 3161 Walnut Street is currently listed by owners as "available immediately."

Twenty-year-old veteran Mexican restaurant Casa Alvarez has officially shuttered its service, the Daily Camera reported. The unexpected shutdown surprised long-time diners and neighbors alike: "We were just here last week!" Nobody seems to know what caused the doors to close. One thing's for sure: it wasn't for lack of attention. Having become some of the most highly talked-about Mexican food in Boulder, the cuisine, service and pricing were consistently prime.

Sunday saw the restaurant divulge the big news via Facebook "with a heavy heart," but did not cite a reason for Walnut Street's newest vacancy. There is one hope, though: word on the street is their award-winning chili will soon be available at a store near you.
