We met there after work for food and drinks. Beers were cold with frosty mugs and food was fresh and delicious . The place is off the beaten path and is a refreshing change from the norm .

We were looking for a Mexican restaurant on trip advisor. I read the reviews for the #1 Mexican place. The reviews although listed as number #1 didn't exactly describe a #1 place. So I kept looking. Then I noticed El Zocalo had 12 reviews but...More

We went to a wedding that Daniel catered. He did a taco bar and the food was excellent! There was plenty of food and the meats were so tasty! After eating this food, I would go to the restaurant for sure.

What a nice surprise! We had no idea this place existed until today. Been to McAlester for Mexican food several times but never here. Amazing chicken and beef fajitas! Fresh chips and salsa! Friendly waitstaff and cook! We will be back!

If you're looking for authentic Mexican food then try this place. The looks of the outside probably deter a lot of people from coming here, but don't judge a book by its cover. Very good food, very friendly staff.

If you are easily deceived, and have no taste buds, continue to pass this awesome restaurant up. But if you truly know and enjoy AUTHENTIC Mexican, then this restaurant will soon become your favorite just like it has become ours!!

Old building with a laundry in one end of building. You enter thru the doors and they have a small convenience store with counter. Restaurant is to the right, the place is a little run down and a cafe feel with a dance floor on...More
