Basic place, but fast service and great burrito bowl (had it with tasty grilled chicken) and (chicken) and quesadilla. Fair prices for quality and quantity of food.

Timing is everything here- they have a small indoor seating and a few tables outside but it can go from no line to 20 people in just a few minutes. Nice touchscreen order screen along with a person who takes orders They specialize in take...out as well. Tacos were good and the guac was great. Would eat again when in the areaMore

Visited this restaurant in Chantilly, VA. From outside it does not look very appealing but the food is amazing. All the dishes are halaal including chorizo which is not pig but chicken. We went with friends and kids and everyone enjoyed it. The price for...various items is very reasonable. We ordered three tacos combination (Chicken Tinga, grilled chicken and chorizo), one burrito with grilled chicken and one chimichanga with grilled chicken. Portion size was adequate and everything was very tasty.More

Taco Zocalo catered our business meeting of 20 people. They set up a taco bar which was absolutely amazing. Everyone commented on how delicious the tacos were. There was more than enough food for everyone and it was delivered promptly. Highly recommend for an impressive...gourmet luncheon. Thank you Taco Zocalo!More

This place is legit....very unpretentious...almost no-frills...inside, but it gets the job done!! You order at the counter, and then the food is delivered to your table..both dealing with very friendly staff. The tacos I ordered were good.....but, the Elote was simply fantastic. I very much...enjoyed my meal here, with the accompanied bottle of Mexican beer. I would definitely recommend coming here if you have a Mexican food / taco craving.More

I have been to Taco Zocalo many times and typically get the three tacos (2 beef barbacoa and 1 chicken tinga) on soft corn tortillas (each taco has two layers of tortillas). The tacos are always packed full of toppings and the meat is well...cooked. Other food options like their bowls and elotes are both taste great. Additionally they are very good with food allergies.More

This place is a real gem, food was obviously delish. Direct off the biker path too. Owner was super nice.

After years of riding past on my bike, I finally stopped in, and I was glad I did. At the owner's suggestion, I tried a chicken and chorizo burrito with guacamole ($11), and it was very good. The burrito wasn't soupy, like at Chipotle, so...it survived the trip home just fine. The salsa that came with it was also very good, but the container was very small, so I will ask for two salsas next time.More

The food was amazing, the salsa tasted incredibly fresh. Everything tasted amazing.... I wouldn't waste time on the queso dip though... it was just ok- it definitely wasn't as good as the rest of the food. The flavor of the meat was so good... good...variety and very fresh!More

GREAT!!! Doesn’t look like much, and you’d drive right by, but they do a heck of a take-out business. Food is always very fresh, consistent, and fast. Flavors are excellent. Go at least once a week now.

The tacos are some of the best I have ever had. Certainly better than Bartaco. The only thing I warn about is the fish. They use Swai and it is endangered. The farm raised are pumped full of antibiotics. I encourage readers to do their...research before ordering the fish. The shrimp are a great substitute! They need to start doing breakfast!More

I've heard the food is good, but since I've never received any, can't say. Placed order on line at 12:37, waited until 1:10, asked about the order twice, walkins placed orders and received their food, but I never received any food or explanation. Had to...leave. Stupid me, this was the second time this happened ! Very disappointing.More

The tacos here are some of the best in the entire area. The whole family loves both the chicken and the ground beef tacos - my 8 year old son had 5 tacos in one sitting! The toppings are to die for - rich, complementary...flavors with the right amount of heat. The salsa is almost a chunky drinkable gazpacho! Love going there for lunch, will return! Looking forward to trying other things on the menu!More

Hot spicy and full of flavor! Great place now named Taco Zocalo started by former food truck operator. They make their own hot sauce, bottle and sell it. Shrimp taco is also fresh and delectable. A favorite haunt! Just look for their food truck out...front!More

Funny when you stumble into a place and they have really good food right? Happened here a year or so just after they opened and hasn't disappointed since. Lots of taco places opening but Taco Zocalo is as good or better than any I've tried....And I've tried a lot. The only disappointment is they don't offer breakfast.More
