Review: Zócalo Mexican Grill and Tequilería

By Laura Taxel
North of the border, Mexican food and drink is often partying fare. Tequila shots, pitchers of margaritas and big bowls of chips and salsa signify good times. Zócalo Mexican Grill and Tequilería has all that and more.

With a cheerful, festive atmosphere, familiar favorites on the plate, a long list of spirited beverages and wallet-friendly prices, it’s easy to have your own personal fiesta any night of the week.

That likely accounts for the crowds that often fill the bar and restaurant. Its location in the heart of the East Fourth Street entertainment district doesn’t hurt either. Zócalo isn’t exactly a newcomer to the neighborhood, but the spot is enjoying something of a rebirth.

It got off to a rocky start when it opened a year ago. To be blunt, what they were serving wasn’t very good. So this spring, Trifecta, the management company behind Zócalo, brought in chef Aarón Sanchez as a consultant to help with a menu makeover and staff training. The burgeoning celebrity will also make regular visits to oversee the operation.
