Halima Gul, who moved to the United States from Afghanistan, said she has lived in Denver for almost 20 years. She said she believes a waiter “didn’t want to serve a Muslim” at the Boulder Cantina Laredo.

A Denver woman said that she believes the fact she is Muslim led to a tense interaction and a lack of service at a Boulder Cantina Laredo, but the restaurant says it was simply an unfortunate misunderstanding.

Halima Gul was in Boulder on Sunday with her two daughters — one of whom goes to the University of Colorado — when they decided to stop in for lunch at Cantina Laredo.

Gul, who moved to the United States from Afghanistan when she was 7, said they were seated by a waiter who asked where she was from. Gul has called Denver home for almost 20 years, so she told the server they were from Colorado.

“I said, ‘I’m from here,’” she said. “That should have been enough. He should have left it at that.”
