We have been going to Culebra for a few years and are so happy about the addition of Zaco's Tacos. It is one of our dinner staples when we are there, but as others have said you need to get there earlier to make sure you get a table. Even if there is a wait, you can grab a drink at the bar and hang out on the new lower deck in the back, behind the dining deck. Big cushioned seating benches and steps down to the back yard with a tree swing for the kids.

We have tried most things on the menu and never had anything bad. I am completely obsessed with the pork belly taco, I have to get one every time and crave it in between trips. Hubby loves the tuna and carnitas, burritos and burrito bowls are awesome, nachos are good salad for our picky vegetarian daughter and if they are offering the guacamole, you MUST get it! I agree with other reviewers, the hibiscus margs are yummy, as are most of the ones they make and you should try one even if you aren't a big margarita drinker. For all this, the prices are really reasonable too!

Staff does an amazing job with the busy pace and the sometimes confused patron. As it's a converted house, you walk right into the bar area and there is no hostess stand, just a very busy bartender. You have to walk past the bar and out the door to go to the back dining deck, where usually one of the servers is keeping track of the waiting list. Can sometimes cause confusion as they may not be there immediately (they are serving too remember!) and if a table is in between seatings, some people rush to grab the open table, not knowing there may be a wait. Stay, it's worth the wait!

It was a bit crowded for lunch but we were able to sit at the bar and enjoy our tacos, chips and salsa and hibiscus margaritas. Personally, the margs were a bit sweet for me but the tacos and chips/salsa were excellent! My favorite was the fresh tuna taco! The sauces are also very good - especially the booty hot!
I did classify it as fast food as you order at the bar. I don't believe they offer wait service. The food is served on paper plates and you'll need to grab plastic utensils from the bar.
We'll be back!

This past trip to Culebra we made sure to hit up zaco's a few times, as its our favorite place to grub! Reasonably priced, and extremely fresh food! On special while we were there was NY Strip tacos and shrimp tacos. The ny strip was fantastic!!! And their salsa is to die for!!

Great food. Great deck. Great hang out. Great beer! We went there for dinner at the end of our trip. Would have gone back if we had more time.
