“Great way to begin our Arizona vacation!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

Arrived in Chandler (lots more to explore there later in our trip) and dined here as recommended by the concierge. We were still on East Coast time and starving so we opted to eat inside rather than wait for an outdoor table. We'll be back for outside dining before our trip is over. Homemade chips and salsa to star-addictive. Margarita with fresh juices was perfect. Fish tacos, ahi tuna and a tilapia special full of flavor and just the right amount of heat. Wrapped up dinner by introducing my daughter to fried ice cream. Server attentive and friendly (everyone is in Arizona).

“Wonderful treat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

This was a small place in Chandler that had outstanding Mexican food. The service was excellent. The portions were generous. We had an order of the fajita which came with 2 warm tortillas but more were offered throughout the meal. Also the homemade relano were outstanding.

“Great little Mexican Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

Good food, great margaritas, and beautiful outdoor seating. If the weather is nice...EAT OUTSIDE! I love that it is an original Chandler Restaurant. It's just a nice little place to go and spend the evening in Chandler.

“El Zocalo outdoor patio garden and food are a "Don't miss"!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

Great service and food over and over again. One of our favorite places in the valley. Go at night and sit outside in their private, intimate patio. Lots of trees with perfect lighting. The orange trees were blossoming tonight so the smell was amazing. Don't miss the Shrimp Rellano! Whether its a night out with friends, a celebration, business dinner, or romantic dinner... This is the spot!
