The food was beautifully prepared and exceptionally delicious. Everyone at our table had something different, the quesadilla a burrito a bowl and tacos. Everyone commented that there is was special and delicious. We sat outSide and felt that the spacing the tables and the way everything was served was done on the way to really protect us. We will definitely come again so that we can see the beautiful interior.

Covered patio eating with ambient lighting, Christmas music playing and a heated lamp right at our table. The inside of this new location is beautiful, cannot wait to enjoy the inside as well!

Very nice for the current social-distancing environment. Food was good and service was very accommodating in making every effort to keep customers warm. The restaurant’s exterior is gorgeous and looking forward to dining inside in the future!

The server was very nice. I ordered the enchiladas with red sauce and the sauce tasted exactly like spaghetti sauce!! Also, when we arrived we told the server probably 3 times we wanted to pay cash, which she was okay with but when we finished our meal, we waited about 30 minutes for her to take out payment but ended up just going inside to pay anyways!!

We enjoyed dinner outside under their heated tent in the rain. This may sound less than appealing to most, but it was honestly amazing. The service was great and the staff were all in great spirits even with having to walk back and forth from inside the restaurant. We ordered a combination taco platter with the carnitas, asada and baja fish. The baja fish was by far my favorite, but the tortillas are what made these even more superb. They were thick and had a hint of sweet corn. The fresh guacamole was also delicious. Oh! And the pitcher of a classic margarita sealed the deal. We hope to be back again soon!

It was good to try it out. Using the phone to order and pay for the service ahead of time took getting used to. It makes it not as personable as having a person take your order and be able to ask questions. It is one reason I may not frequent the restaurant as much. I prefer a server to take an order and be able to ask questions if I have them.

Using the APP to order leads to poor service.
3rd visit since opening and each time wait staff less attentive. They have no idea what you’ve ordered and forget things’

Enjoyed the shrimp tacos (very good), a favorite was the chicken enchiladas in mole sauce, excellent. Sauce was mild & a little on the sweet side. As always the guacamole appetizer is the best. Chips were fresh and not salty. Nice.. Thank you for cutting the salt.

We really did not like their system for taking orders. You have to download an app and then place your drink order through that app. The app downloaded ok but when we went to place the order (after 15 minutes of staring at our phones trying to feed hungry kids) the app did not work and ended up having to order through the manager. It was 45 minutes from when we arrived to actually getting our drinks! After we got our drinks we were able to order the food from the actual server and everything else was fine.

The one very odd thing about the ambience is that they have a giant doorway going into the back kitchen area where they make chips. The bright fluorescent lights flow right into the dining area and customers can see a bunch of chips and stuff on the floor in there and people's personal water bottles, etc.

Overall, they should dim all of the lights in the whole place, figure out a better plan for the chip making area and get rid of the app for ordering. No one likes it, not even the servers. If this restaurant were in a big city or Las Vegas, it would be out of business rather quickly in my opinion.

The experience was great. The temp got a little chili when they left the door open to the outdoor area to the bar but the staff was very courteous when asked to close it.
Great time.

The food was sub par. I had to send my dish back because the cheese was not melted. I've eaten at the Zocalos in Roseville several times and this one was not as good. Pretty building and nice waitress bit I will not go back for the food.

Finally after 4 weeks we got a reservation for our family of four. New décor is very well done, hostesses were the best (unusual these days). Got nice table but then we had to navigate the darn menu on the phone. Thanks goodness our waiter helped and helped and helped totaling nullifying the COVID inspired electronic menu. Suggestion: If the diner is over 40, give them a paper menu to order instead of it taking over 10+ minutes to order. Thankfully, the food was great and we were glad we tried Zocalo. One other suggestion, work with Folsom Fire to develop a way to use space heaters for outdoor dining.

The restaurant is beautiful inside and out. The food was delish and I am sure we will be back. My only disappointment was the drinks. I was looking forward to having a Blackberry Margarita and it was seriously watered down.

This was my first time at Zocalo in Folsom and it won’t be the last. Our lunch was very enjoyable, even though we ate on the outside patio and it was very cold the waitress made sure to put the heat lamps on for our comfort. The food was so good, I had the tacos americano (I think that’s what it was called?) and the chicken was amazing.
