“Worth the drive to Zacatitos!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2012

Zac's is a nice destination which was only accessible by driving the East Cape dirt road up until recently. Now it's paved except for a bit of dirt road. We've eaten on the 2nd floor deck once and had a great meal.

“Not a serious restaurant”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2012

We drove out to Zac's for lunch and arrived about 20 minutes prior to their opening at 1:00pm for lunch. It' a dusty, bumpy dirt road to get to to the restaurant. The ladies of our party walked through the front gate and a man (co-owner?) ran down the stairs, as the restaurant is upstairs and told the ladies that they are cleaning the restaurant are not open and to exit the property. He then shut and locked the gate behind them and went back upstairs. Then the a woman (co-owner?) ran down the stairs while arguing with the man. She let us have it verbally and said that we were messing up their restaurant because we arrived early. She then pointed in two different directions and said we can find another restaurant 4 mile one way and 12 miles the other. As a long time local the worst Baja Hospitality ever, in 40 years! Go to Buzzard's instead! You will get a meal.

We are so sorry about your non crispy chicken taco experience. We strive very hard to ensure all of our customers receive a quality meal. We offer over 50 menu items including gluten free & vegetarian. The simple reason we offer only ground beef & bean in our home made crispy shell...is that they are flexible smaller items that can be put into the crispy shell without it breaking. We have tried all of our other meats and without mincing them, which it our preference not to do, it simply does not work. We thank you for your input and hope that even though you did not receive exactly what you wanted, that the food was good and you enjoyed the off the grid out of the box experience of Baja.

“Cant wait to go back in about 2 weeks!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2012

Stumbled upon Zac's while exploring the countryside. Pulled up front in our car and parked next to a couple of horses hitched out front too. No Kidding!! Great Margaritas and snacks. Will be heading back in the next two weeks. Will definitely look forward to another lazy afternoon spent at Zac's!!

“Cold beer in the middle of no where”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2012

Found Zac's on the road to Cabo Pulmo. Great treat to find a real beach bar with Clapton on the CD and cold beer. Also a handy clean restroom. Friendly and fun atmosphere. Note - they only take cash - US or Pesos.

“Need a break from the Cabo wabo or San Jose shakedown?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2011 via mobile

About 25 minutes north of san Jose on east cape washboard you'll find the gang's all here consuming honest mexican style food and washing it down with same while gazing at setting sun from 2nd floor of this standalone building which is like a beacon in the actual desert it's surrounded by. I say Mexican style as we were confounded at first by special of the day "taco bell style" something but got over it. Good beaches nearby.
