The food was very good, topped off with the house margarita... More

Be prepared to wait a bit. There's often a line. That's because the food is right on, especially after garnishing your meal (with so many choices) to suit your very own personal taste. Yumm!

We are locals and go here maybe once or twice a month. Very fresh ingredients and great choices. We love the bowls. And the mango salsa is the best. Simple friendly environment. Not fast food- but good food fast. The locals love this place and have since it opened.

We visited the Zia Taqueria on the south end town. The resturaunt was clean and the staff very friendly and helpful. Would definitely visit again and recommend for a quick but fresh option to Mecian food.

We ordered for pick up as Zia is always busy around dinner. I ordered a rice bowl with chicken, the chicken was rubbery and over cooked, the rice was both under cooked and over cooked. The burrito we ordered was the same with the rice but not very good. Both meals were half eaten and tossed. At North Zia I... More

The food was good, but the service was a bit slow for a fast food place. The place was pleasant, and the prices were okay. It would be a good place for either adults or people travelling with kids. My actual rating would be a simple good somewhere between fair and very good.
