So, the prices are not too terrible $13-14 for tacos (you get 4 soft shell ones.) The problem is that nothing has flavor. We had both chicken and steak tacos that were not great. They needed some extra flavor. I asked for sauces to try...More

We started with a Zacatecas Shrimp Cocktail and delicious Margaritas. Then Duck Relleno, carne Asada and quesadilla. Food was very good and excellent service. Great place to have fun!!

The fish tacos were good, chicken tacos tasted like something out of a crockpot. And the kids tacos were dry. Service was nothing spectacular. And the drinks were over priced and the margarita tasted liked straight lime juice.

If you like your Mexican food commercialized, foofoo-ized and yuppified, then this is the place. It's not bad, but it ain't great and it's a bit pricey. Perhaps the attraction is the full bar and the tequila - after all, enough of that and of...More

It goes without saying that the drinks and food were excellent. What really stood out was the teamwork of the staff. The woman who greeted us (Brianna) was seamlessly slipping in and out of several hats. She escorted us to the bar to wait (Friday...More

Zacatecas also offers a bar menu featuring Signature Cocktails, South of the Border Specialties, Build-Your-Own Margaritas, Delicious Infusions, and an extensive selection of Tequila and Mezcal to compliment your dining experience.
