I would have to categorize myself as a "foodie". I love cooking, eating great and interesting food and am in a gourmet group where we cook gourmet foods from specified different countries globally.
If you are in Neenah, Menasha, Appleton Wisconsin and seeking great food and like interesting and special dishes, I strongly recommend this restaurant with the connotation that you ask for the "special" menu.
With the special menu, this is not a typical Mexican American restaurant, but a gourmet Mexican cuisine restaurant. Not tacos, burritos, refried beans and too much cheese we get at all the other "Mexican" restaurants.
Fresh produce, fresh fruit, specially prepared (ie. properly prepared) meats, etc. . .
We ordered 3 dishes:
An incredible marinated pork chop served with a great mole which inlcuded peaches, pineapple and plums. The pork chop itself was technically properly prepared, juicy, flavor-ful, ideal. The made on site, fresh mole was incredible.
A Shrimp dish prepared with a dry rub unique to the Yucatan Penn. region which was served with a pumpkin seed based mole on a bed of fresh fruit and coconut milk rice. Terrific.
A Cerviche dish with shrimp, scallops and grouper prepared and served with interesting crisp vegetables. When was the last time you saw or were served kohlrabi at a restaurant? The nice thing for many people is that they actually allow one to order the cerviche grilled (after the marinading process), which is nice for those less adventurous people who are not crazy about the texture of cerviche.
This is the type of restaurant one can expect to find in San Francisco, not the Midwest. Had I been in San Francisco and dined here, I would have been exceptionally pleased with my selection.
If you are seeking a great meal, chef'd with love, expertise and food knowledge, I recommend the "special" menu at Zacatecas.
Don't forget to ask for the special menu and go with creativity in mind and be prepared to experience real, Mexican gourmet cuisine.
