    I could see the place as having a fun vibe but….. the dirty menus and poor food didn’t make up for it. I would looks elsewhere.

    First time ever, food was not hot, barely warm. Server brought piping hot food quickly. Chips were not warm and crispy. Never had a bad meal here, so this is the exception in my experience and hopefully not a downward trend.

    ZocaloResponded on April 23, 2022Hello Gene! We always strive for excellence in our restaurant so it's unusual when our food does not meet your expectations. We appreciate your patronage and assure that we will make your next visit with us just perfect!

    This place is my secret lunch spot away from the usual bustling Colony Square lunch spots that my colleagues visit..Service was great. And historically their food is very good..however, this time it was just so-so..it’s one of the first times I’ve been post COVID..I think they’re still bouncing back..

    Great food, a little too loud for our taste, may be cause they had to cover their patios in Winter. But couple big tables were way too loud.

    We hadn’t been to Zocalo in probably 10 yrs! Doing a little throw back, decided to give it a go on a Friday; make reservations to ensure there wouldn’t be much of a wait, which worked well! Service was very good, quick drinks, chips/salsa, even food — and that’s where it went downhill😔! We all 4 thought the food was a solid 5 out of 10, sadly. We got enchiladas, quesadillas and a 3 taco meal. Pretty flavorless and unimaginative. Take me to Bone Garden and Nuevo Laredo next time!! Sorry Zocalo…

    ZocaloResponded on February 7, 2022Hello Celia! We're excited that you enjoyed very good service, the quick drinks, chips/salsa, and an all around pleasant experience with us! We take great effort in sourcing the best quality ingredients and providing a high-quality dining experience. A lot of passion and expertise goes into preparing each and every dish we offer and we very rarely receive this type of feedback. We hope you give us another opportunity to serve you!

    Just casual mid day lunch in the middle of the week. Service wasn’t good. Slow and not very attentive. Food was decent, tacos were the best part. Had two steak, one chicken.

    This version of Mexican here is tasty but slightly nouvelle Mexican food with drizzled cheese and sour cream sauces and attractive plating to accompany very tasty traditional recipes. The margaritas are very good and the selection is flavor-varied. It is much better than your average Mexican joint or Tex-Mex restaurant. Entire restaurant is open-air and bustling with activity. Chile Relleno, Burritos, Enchalatas, Soft Tacos are all here. Recommended.

    Food was good. We had a large group and our order wasn’t taken until an hour after we arrived. Our server didn’t write anything down and was frazzled the entire time. Come time for checks, it was a disaster. Food was good, but it was just loud and cramped.
