I came back here, because I had a really good memory from the last time I ate here. I remembered feeling like I was still in Mexico. After tonight's visit, I will never come back. As I was waiting in the small space in front of the restaurant, a man in filthy clothes walked up and took a seat on... More

I would like to commend the Sunday September 4 dinner staff, the place was packed to the brim yet they managed to provide fast and friendly service with a smile, very impressive . The food was amazing (if somewhat expensive), the tacos are filled with flavor and leave you wanting more. I would definitely return.

We arrived about 930 p.m. and was rushed the entire time. Here's the skinny: The good - The Chicken tinga tacos were okay. The beans were soupy and the rice was bland. The bad - The fresh guacamole was bland and flavorless. It's most likely because the avocado was not ripe. The guy preparing it had a hard time mashing... More

Came here after an eventful day at Piedmont park. Hostess greeted us and sat us very quickly!! Loved their queso dip!! Their tacos are really good and the chicken tortilla soup is packed with tons of flavor! Great varieties of drinks!

Zocalo's staff is very friendly, fun, and welcoming. They have very good margaritas, especially the frozen kind. The food is average Mexican, but not that bad. The best part is the atmosphere, staff, and drinks. This would be a perfect place to start before a big dinner or on a Friday evening!! Try the tequila flight (if you dare).

I have tried this zocalo 2 times and the food is just horrible. It's also expensive. I recommend trying different Mexican restaurants in the area. It truly is a shame! But! They have great margaritas and they are right by Piedmont park. So maybe just go for drinks. Don't try the food! You'll be disappointed.

We went here for dinner and got one of the burritos that comes in a cheese and tomato based sauce. The sauce had a strange, metallic taste. I dismissed that as possibly being something I personally didn't like. But the filling, beef, was very, very dried out and tough. It was just bad. Chips were served before the meal. After... More

We are always on the lookout for great Mexican food and this place is it. All the food was on point. We had the steak and fish tacos. Both were very good. The chips are served warm, which is rarely done other places but makes a difference. The guacamole is prepared table side and they have a $5 bottomless for... More
