Zocalo Ratings and Reviews
Too loud to think. This is not the place to go when you want to catch up with friends as you have to practically yell. It is clearly a great local hangout. The Margaritas were overpriced. We purchased a pitcher for $39.00 and the pitcher was completely full of ice resulting in probably less than 12 oz each of actual margarita for the 3 of us. But all of it could have been forgiven if the service had been even decent. We sat for 10 minutes without anyone even acknowledging us. When our waiter did - his comment was “I saw you looking around so I assumed I needed to come over”. BTW - the margaritas took another 15 minutes to receive. We asked someone else for some paper napkins and our waiter snapped at us for getting someone else involved and then we finally got up to get the napkins. I will never go back and will never recommend it. But clearly others really enjoy the activity and I suppose are there for the “party” atmosphere.
It was a bit noisy, but that was expected being that it was Friday Night. I wish i would have done some research, i was looking for a quiet place to have dinner with my wife since it was her birthday. The food was very good and so were the drinks. This is the second Richard Sandoval restaurant that i have been to and have been satisfied with the service and food.
I would have absolutely loved this place if I was back in undergrad. The crowd was pretty young, the conversations were loud, and the music was even louder. The food was good (I had the hanger steak tacos and my husband the fish tacos), and the menu had lots of unmarked gluten-free options. But the slow, inattentive service and exuberant conversation and music made it not so enjoyable for our lazy Sunday lunch.
Very disappointing. We had a reservation for a lunch meeting for 25 people, and only 10 people received their food, after waiting for over an hour. The rest of us had to leave and ended up going back to the office to get food from our lunch cafeteria! The bad part was this event was a get-together for team members that are out of town, and we wanted to show them a good time. Well, that didn't go well. Needless to say, we will not be going here for lunch again.
Chose Zocalo for a bachelorette party brunch. Often times, large groups can be annoying and/or loud resulting in begrudged service. Fortunately, that was not the case here. Zocalo was accommodating and treated us like every other customer. It was outdoor-ish seating. The food was phemonaml and so were the drinks.
We've always had great meals at Zocalo. One of the great things to et when visiting here is the table side guacamole. Their Carnitas are also really well done, nice and juicy but still with those crispy bits as well. The outdoor dining is also great on a warm evening. It can get packed on Saturday afternoons and weekends, so we usually visit on weeknights. One of our favorite mexican places in Atlanta.
This restaurant was absolutely perfect. I celebrated my 18th birthday here and I couldn't have been happier. I had 20 guests and the place was packed on a Saturday night but they still made me feel important. The music was amazing, me and all my friends sung pretty much every song that came on and the food was amazing for the cheap prices. If you're looking to celebrate and want quality but affordable, Zocalo is the place to go. All of my guests told me they had a lot of fun and loved Zocalo.
I took a group of twelve to Zocalo for lunch and the food and service was great. It wasn't too busy for lunch and they were able to accommodate us with no problem. As you can imagine, with 12 of us at lunch we tried a lot of dishes and appetizers and I heard nothing but great comments on the food from the group and this group has been known to express their displeasure when food is not good or up to par. I would definitely go back for another group lunch and I am thinking about making the drive for lunch or dinner with my wife which is a haul from where I live.
Zocalo has been known to be one of the better traditional Mexican places in Atlanta. If you go, look beyond the typical tacos and enchiladas to try their meat dishes. While more expensive, their Chicken Mole dish is excellent, a bit larger than most dishes, and worth a few dollars more. Their mole sauce is wonderful, complex, but not overpowering to the chicken. It's also served with deliciously creamy milk-rice on the side, which I have never seen served at a Latin restaurant in Atlanta. Despite the excellent food, the service this day was very lacking. We were one of only about 3-4 tables at the time, yet our drinks ran low on 3 separate occasions. We had to yell for the server, who put down her phone, and refilled us.
