We ate here for the second time after a movie and were treated to an excellent meal. The seafood molcajete is absolutely wonderful, but I wonder if the price scares some customers off. It was worth it to me and I will order it again....More

Open since: July 18, 2017 Zócalo was the main ceremonial center for the Aztecs, and presently, it is the main square in central Mexico City. It is a cultural and political Plaza and a place to gather and find classic street food. Zocalo Street Food and Tequila will bring a modern version of cooking traditional Mexican street food, and combine these perfected recipes with excellent presentation.A modern concept in Mexican Cuisine that bridges the old school tradition with a twist of innovative cooking and an upscale presentation. Zocalo Street Food and Tequila is a modern Mexican eatery and the creation of Emmanuel Ibarra and Alejandro Hernandez. Their relatives grew up in the restaurant business as the children of the owners of El Cerro Grande. We are excited to open our doors to the great people of Wilmington and visitors. Our new restaurant offers a great space to gather with great food, drinks and a big selection of the best Tequilas to celebrate, meet or just have a good time!
