    Great pre-theatre eats for The Lyric Stage.

    Was a bit disappointed. Mariscada was VERY salty... Yet the steak needed some salt and pepper. Presentation is nice but 23$ for a mediocre meal

    Taco night on Monday is $2 tacos or $3 for fish shrimp. Toss in guacamole and Monday Night Football and you're stuffed.

    Best to go at lunch time. Both the enchilada and the fish tacos are awesome. Ceviche is usually good, but I went once when they didn't have fresh tuna and it tasted like something out of a can...

    At Zocalo, they make their own fresh guacamole at your table, expertly blending avocado, lime juice, onions, tomatoes, and cilantro with skilled hands usually reserved for drink-making and foreplay. Read more

    Skip the mole and instead order tacos a la parrilla, a piece of grilled ahi tuna, a pale fish not much heavier than swordfish, on a bed of guac and red cabbage, with nicely folded corn tortillas. Read more

    for starters, get the fresh-made guac at your table. Can't go wrong with the tuna ceviche! Mojitos are sub-par, margaritas are very good.
