Solid Mexican food in a funky little cafe. The service was quick and friendly. The chips and salsa to start was nice. The salsa wasn't too spicy but, had a nice smoky flavor. I had the Salsa Verde Burrito. It was excellent. The pork was well cooked and spicy. The sauce had just the right degree of heat. My wife... More

I had the egg bacon croissant sandwich. It was huge and very good. They have great coffee, not to strong nor to weak. This is one of mine and my husbands favorite breakfast places.

A most excellent little place to take a meal. We stopped in here on a tip. She said, "It's really good. That's where all the locals go." She wasn't kidding about the "good." Service was outstanding. At 8:30 on a Saturday night, we were met at the entrance, and shown to a spot immediately. We could have sat outside, but... More

Maybe I should have gone there for breakfast. I hear they have a good breakfast menu. I took my two boys for lunch. I had Nachos and they had a kids meal, one with grilled cheese, the other with quesadilla. The food was good, nothing really special, but good. I do like how they give the kids a child cup... More

A smallish, sidewalk style Mexican cafe, Zorro's never disappoints. The food is delicious, and their breakfasts, which are available until 3PM, are to die for. My favorite is the Green Chile Omelet, which is the tastiest Chile Verde on the planet. Every ingredient is fresh, hand chopped, prepared to order. Also, the Chile Relleno (fresh Poblano chile) is one of... More

A small but fun place for a casual and tasty breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Most of the seating is outdoors which is pleasant most days. My spouse and I love their breakfasts with hearty pancakes and delicious omlets. The service is good and the atmosphere welcoming. It can be very busy on weekends and holidays.

Great Southern California style Mexican food, good beer selection. Try the taquitos! The chilaquiles for breakfast were large enough to be shared by two of us.

Wish we had discovered it sooner! Apparently there is usually a line down the street and for good reason. We had breakfast on a Monday, around 9. No wait and delicious food. My husband had a seafood omelet and I had eggs benedict with crab in place of ham. Both were large portions at great prices! Looking for a good... More
