“Dinner for 12”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2014 via mobile

Margarita starters & a mixture of entree's to share. All impressed with the use of Mexican ingredients in the dishes. Over the group the Seafood won over the meat meals. Highly recommend the Grilled Red Trout on rice + mex flavours. Service was very good - kooky waiter was entertaining and knew his stuff. Highly recommend.

“Consistently good cuisine”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2014

This restaurant is one we always come to at least once when visiting Aspen. We were not disappointed. This menu is for people who might like something prepared a little differently than the normal fare. The chiles they use make all the difference in the taste. Even though it's located downstairs in a small area, it has a charm that we kinda like. It always seems busy, especially locals so that tells you something right there. For first timers, you might turnaround and walk out when you first enter the restaurant. It looks small and uninviting. But, for our buck, it's a really good place to experience.

“Refreshingly different, with yummy food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2014

We visited Zocalito on the last night of an 8-night holiday in the Aspen / Snowmass area and were looking for something informal (we have two toddlers in tow) and a bit different. This place was great! Despite us turning up half an hour late, our server was totally charming and couldn't do enough for us. The Latin food (southern Mexican, really) was delicious and we found the portion sizes generous. Very good mojitos (raspberry virgin mojitos for the non-drinkers) topped it all off. We will definitely return here when back in the area.

“Do Not Skip This Restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2014

Despite being located in a basement and accessed through an alleyway, this place was hoping with dinners. There is no formal reception podium, you enter at the bar. The pork tacos were amazing if you like to spice things up. We recommend calling ahead to reserve seating as this place was packed.
