“Tasty and fun”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2013

This isn't your standard Mexican fare. This is somewhat elevated, modern Mexican cuisine. The tomatillo salsas are fantastic and the margaritas are definitely not made from a mix. I had the short rib tacos which were absolutely divine and the four tacos plus rice and beans sufficiently filled me up to the extent where dessert was not an option. It's a fun place with a great vibe and good place to have dinner on a Friday night.

“Upscale Mexican Cuisine... A wow!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2013

This is a very different experience. Don't go looking for tacos and enchiladas. The food is very very tasty, unique and a true experience. The wait staff is very helpful in walking you thru the menu and they were appropriately attentive. Relatively small dining area and crowded...good sign for a first timer. The bar area looks like it would be fun especially during happy hour. This is on the list for a repeat trip. Pricing is on the more expensive side but not compared to the area!

“A little Quirky...... but always Top Quality Food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

Each time we patronize Zocalo on the Country Club Plaza, we enjoy our experience and love the food! The wait staff is the "quirky part", but always friendly and helpful, which we appreciate. The menu offers alot of options, for those wanting spicy or not so spicy food and the drinks are really good as well! We love the privacy of the tall booths, and the glass into the bar area allows one to be tucked in and feel private, but with a "window on the world" so to speak! It is a fun option for those Plaza goers who are not in the mood for "stuffy and overpriced" entrees! The only suggestion we would have for Zocalo, is to educate their staff a bit more - to be able to explain more details of the food offerings, but overall- a great experience each time we go there!

“Pricey”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 15, 2012

I had a quick something to eat while waiting for my flight at this restaurant located inside the Southwest Airlines Terminal Building in Kansas City, Missouri. The drinks were very pricey as was the food. I expect that prices will be higher at an airport facility but this was really over priced. The drinks alone were over $25. The bartender was nice and courteous.
