Presenting El Segundo

El Segundo y Taco

After being voted the "SECOND BEST TACO" in the Boulder Weekly Best Of Poll, we could have been angry, we could have tweeted in mock disdain of awards polls. 

But instead we decided to OWN IT.

If we are going to be SECOND, we're going to have some fun with it. 

So we created EL SEGUNDO. He is the ambassador of our SECOND place honor.

El Segundo is a hard-working luchador. He is strong, he is fit, he is persistent and gritty. But no matter how hard he tries he always comes out SECOND BEST. 

Sometimes it makes him sad, sometimes he's ambivalent about it, but for the most part he's okay with it. After all, of all the luchadors in the land, he is the SECOND BEST and while he will keep trying to be FIRST BEST, for now he is honored to be SECOND. 

Check out our Facebook (FB Louisville, FB Boulder) and Instagram pages for updates on EL SEGUNDO and the beauty of being Second. 

Kid's Eat Free for Back to School!

It's back to school time!

It's back to school time!

Back to school time is at once exciting, scary, anxious, mentally and emotionally draining. 

The long, slow days of summer suddenly give way to early bed times and earlier alarm clocks. New schedules, new friends, new classrooms, a new year - it all takes a toll on our little ones (and bigger ones). 

And as parents, it is taxing on us as well. We're figuring out new schedules, balancing work, adjusting to our kids' emotional roller coaster. It can be a tough transition. 

The last thing you want to worry about during all of this is WHAT'S FOR DINNER? 

Pica's is making it easy - kid's eat free (both Louisville and Boulder) for the first two weeks of the BVSD school year - August 14 - 25, 2017. Any item on our kid's menu is free as long as an adult is eating as well. 

Just mention to your server "Back to School Special" Please, and we'll take care of you!

We hope you had a great summer and here's to kicking off the school year right!



SEcond best taco!

The people of Boulder County have spoken and they have determined that Pica’s has the SECOND BEST TACO in all the land (that land being Boulder County)!

Some people might be upset about playing second fiddle. They might think the ballot box was stuffed or the voting was rigged, or worse – the people have bad taste!

But not us, we’re pretty psyched with SECOND BEST TACO. In fact, we’re kind of relieved.

Can you imagine living with the pressure of having the FIRST BEST TACO? Every day when you’re making those tacos you’re thinking, “man, is this the first best taco in all the land?” The stress, the pressure – it can break a person.

But with second best we can relax a little bit and say to ourselves – "have we just made the second best taco we can make? Yes, we have." And we can serve you the second best taco comfortable with our place in the world.

So thank you people of Boulder for taking the pressure off of us. We’ll still work hard and serve great food, but we’re only going to work hard enough to serve the SECOND BEST TACO.

Pica’s – serving up the SECOND BEST TACO in Boulder.

Thank you!

A Month for Mila

There's no easy way to put this. Friends of ours are facing a parent's worst nightmare - they are slowly losing their six year old daughter Mila. 

In December 2016 Mila was diagnosed with Batten Disease, a rare neurodegenerative disease. There is NO CURE...yet. 

But recent trials have halted the disease. Mila's family has been working tirelessly to fund a clinical trial that gives hope to Mila and others with Batten disease.

Can you help them fund this clinical trial? 

No amount is too small. PLEASE DONATE HERE.
