    One of the best places for brunch in Boston. Food is amazing (must try the spicy guac) and bottomless mimosas with tons of flavors to try!!!

    Service outside was awesome. Guac was amazing. I had the simple two shrimp tacos and were fresh an perfect. Everything was great. A few speciality were good. I'll be back

    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...

    The best salsa and guac in town! Perfect snack to nibble on while sipping their red sangria.

    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

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

    Guac is fresh and delish. Duck has lots of great flavors and was impressive for a mexican place.

    Try the guacamole sauce! And also the Pescado A La Veracruzana, best fish dinner ever!

    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.

    Drinks were good, not great. Food was very good, portions not gigantic (which was good as it was late). Service was very friendly. Liked the mexican paella a lot.

    Try the tamale elote--it's sweet corn, not masa, and amazing.

    Guacamole and margaritas are a must at Zocalo! Service is hit or miss though.

    They need a new bartender. Suggestion: Take a page from Mistrals book on staffing. Sangria flights are worth a try!

    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
