Went here with a group of co-workers. Most of us had traveled from the East Coast for a meeting and were quite tired. This place sure perked us up! The patio was appealing, but it was so hot that we opted to be seated inside. Margaritas were good and strong. Guacamole was fresh and chips were fantastic. Our server took... More

Lovely place for a date or a family event. The margaritas rock! the chips and salsa are fabulous, but you will want to try the chicken mole', it is really quite impressive.

We were on business here and this place was highly recommended. We were told to sit in the patio area which was beautiful and cool with the misting fans. Our server was helpful. The food was average and the ahi tacos while good, were overpriced. Once the food came we were overwhelmed by flies. There was a fly in my... More

By far, our favorite local Mexican restaurant. The food is always amazing, and the margaritas are excellent! Request to sit outside for ambiance or at the bar for best service.

Food is consistently good. One of the few places that you can find chicken mole, which is what I usually order. However this last visit I chose the beef enchiladas which were good as well. The patio is surrounded by mature plants that makes you feel isolated from the hustle/bustle of the city around you. When the temperature allows outside... More

We had a very tasty family dinner here. We ended up at El Zocalo by accident and were very pleasantly surprised. The food was very tasty and the service was great. All of the entrees were tasty. I kept it simple having a quesadilla and was not all disappointed. My parents enjoyed their fajitas and the kids liked their burritos.... More

This use to be one of my favorite restaurants, but the last few meals haven't lived up to my expectations. I almost always order the carne asada steak tacos for reference. I do love the patio and continue to stop in here to enjoy a margarita and the yummy chips and salsa outside in the better weather months. Service can... More

Service and food was very good. For lunch I had the Chimichanga, great taste and good ingredients, not large in size, rice was also very good. Spouse had chicken taco and burrito, taco exceptional, burrito average. This is a good place to go.

We have visited this restaurant numerous times over several years, and have found it to be reliably good and a pleasant experience each time. Service is always prompt and friendly. The menu is predictable if not unique, but the food is well prepared and tasty.
