This is one of our favorite restaurants. We love sitting on the patio during the day or in the evening under the strung patio lights. Their menu is great for families, a complex palate of tastes for adults and a more simple menu for children. Their brunch is pretty amazing too!

A "southwestern" restaurant with a Mexican flair. Excellent service, excellent food, and great atmosphere. We didn't have a reservation and were first put in a rather high traffic area, and the manager surprisingly moved us (without us even asking). From the time we ordered to the time we received our meal, it was maybe 10 min! The portions are huge!!... More

I had the BBQ pork torta. It was extremely dry and no BBQ taste. The fries that came with them were also dry. Their chips and salsa was delicious however.

We went there for dinner because it was close to the movie theatre. There food was really interesting and tasty, as were the drinks. I recommend highly, but not if you like bland, non spicy food.

Great food with a great atmosphere. I always go here when I visit altar. The service can be somewhat slow. But the thing makes up for it. Must try the blue fried oysters.

Just across the parking lot from the Marriott. Great happy hour small plates and wine. Dinner was fish tacos, excellent, and salmon, very good. Choice of inside, outside or covered area for dining. Attentive staff, reasonable prices.

The atmosphere is great and the menu reads interesting... But our food was over cooked and a bit greasy. I was a little disappointed.

Zolo is not your typical Mexican joint. A little on the pricey side, it boasts a "new" Southwestern style menu with a few classics like tacos and enchiladas. I had the lamb shank, not something you'd typically see on a menu at one of these places. It was pretty good, however it came with a side of some pretty uninspired... More

We were completely impressed with Zolo, from the patio seating to the knowledgable and friendly service to the really great and varied food & drink. A perfect red Sangria, not too sweet. Delicious beers and very nice wines by the glass. The happy hour drinks and snacks are quite good, especially the Tamale, which was way above average in flavor,... More
