I was dining out with Coworkers for a conference down here recently and we stopped into El Zocalo for lunch. I didn't know I was hungry until I arrived here. The inside of this lovely eatery is well decorated without being cluttered, open and bright, and has a beautiful patio courtyard area tucked away in the back. Inside you have... More

Food was above average standard Mexican fare but the patio made it a great evening. Great for couples or families. Closes at 8 pm on Sunday.

We travel to Chandler 1-2 times a year to visit our son. We always go to El Zocalo for a meal. We've never been disappointed. Love the salsa and homemade chips. The guacamole is also good. Being from a part of the Midwest with few really great choices for Mexican food, this is a treat for us. It might be... More

Home made hot sauce was good stuff. Guacamole good but could do with more seasoning. Overall enjoyable experience, service great and really cute outside terrace with pea lights and... More

If you are craving good Mexican food, but in an intimate setting, try El Zocalo's courtyard in the rear of the restaurant. The food is great, as well as their service and friendly staff. Very casual atmosphere.

It was one of the first days you could sit outside in the patio which is really nice as long it is not too hot yet. This was also the best part of the visit. The food was ok but it took too long to get seated. The service afterwards was fast,
