It's quite possible this was an "off night", but I ordered a tray of 4 "Al Pastor Tacos" and they were chewy and not particularly enticing. They were highly recommended, good ratings on T/A, but I, personally, would not waste my time going back...

I went here while exploring ABQ and they are by far the best tacos. Each taco was paired with flavors that were remarkable. I recommend this to anyone who loves tacos or wants a bite to eat in the ABQ area.

Had the tacos because they are a speciality. Both different styles I ate were very tasty. Friends had the fish cakes and loved them. Very nice Margaritas as well.

I had the tiger shrimp which were perfection and my wife had a great salad. Our server, Tessa, was knowledgable and attentive. The setting is casual, which I like. All in all a great meal at a reasonable price!

It was a bit boisterous but not so much that we couldn't have a pleasant conversation during our meal. The food was all right and very reasonably priced.

Named for a region in central Mexico known for its classic, cross cultural blend of foods and recipes, Zacatecas offers a variety of soft tacos with fresh, organic ingredients and a Margarita bar featuring tequilas and beer exclusively from Mexico.

Zacatecas also offers a bar menu featuring Signature Cocktails, South of the Border Specialties, Build-Your-Own Margaritas, Delicious Infusions, and an extensive selection of Tequila and Mezcal to compliment your dining experience.
