Great atmosphere that is decorated nicely. They have multiple types of tequilas and margaritas that tasted awesome. The tacos were good as well, but avoid the carnitas because the meat was dry and not very tasty. The carne asada taco was bomb though.

Been here 2x. I was hoping the greasy chips and salsa was a mistake the first time.. unfortunately it was not. Came here the second time to find the chips awfully greasy again. They are fried and taste and feel as if they've been soaked in oil. You can get a great drink drink and the food is tasty but... More

Nice restaurant with a limited but interesting menu. Food is very good, authentic Mexican. Service is competent and friendly. Good margaritas, you can create your own!

We popped into Zacatecas because of the aroma as we passed the door. The meal delivered all the deliciousness the aroma promised. Good service, excellent tacos. Each of us ordered a different specialty cocktail, all tasty--especially the one with blood orange. Highly recommended!

If you're looking to have a filling dinner experience, continue to go look for something else, as this place served up the smallest margaritas I have ever seen, and their meal portions are ridiculous for what they charge. You're better off going to a chain place like Qdoba or Chipoltle to get more bang for your buck.

Always a treat. The food is good, the service is good, it's a beautiful place to eat in the summer when they open the big windows at the front. It's fairly expensive and the live music can get really loud but it's yummy.

The house margaritas are made with fresh lime juice and are awesome! I recommend the enchiladas and the beef tacos. The chips and salsa is very unique and delicious!

Flew in and needed a late lunch/early dinner. Wanted New Mexican and vegetarian. Zacatecas fit the bill from the other reviews nad then lived up to their rating. Very friendly and knowledgable waiter and tasty food; we would definately return again.
