Description: Zacatecas is an authentic Mexican taqueria and tequila bar located in Nob Hill, Albuquerque created by Chef Mark Kiffin. Named for a region in central Mexico known for its classic, cross cultural blend of foods and recipes, Zacatecas offers a variety of soft tacos with fresh, organic ingredients and a Margarita bar featuring tequilas and beer exclusively from Mexico. Lunch and dinner menus include gourmet Mexican tacos (our shrimp tacos were featured on NM Style) served on warm Corn Tortillas, Tortas, Antojitos (appetizers), Postres (desserts), and classic Mexican specialties. 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. In addition to the food, part of the excitment at Zacatecas is the wide variety of events such as Dia de los Muertos Sugar Skull decorating, and Tequila Dinners!

We were taken out to dinner here by family who live on ABQ. We enjoyed many new flavors and ingredients we don’t usually get in the Midwest. The rock cod tacos (4 in an order) were delicious, not too spicy, especially as we asked for and got the habanero salsa on the side and so could control the level of heat. And the Caesar salad was right on target. Enjoyed tasting a roasted carrot taco as well. Everyone in our group of eight, ranging in age from 11 to 75+, found something to enjoy and came away satisfied.

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 and the sauces were all bland and didn't add anything to the tacos. I would not go back. Nice waiter though and cool environment. Also, parking is at meters on street nearby.

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.

We were in Albuquerque all week and this was our best meal. We trusted the waitress to fix a margarita ( your imagination is the limit if you want to decide yourself) and I had tequila shots which were great. Huge menu of tequila and bourbon and great food.
