Very nice ambiance. We especially enjoyed the cucumber, avocado gazpacho with habanero drizzle and beet sorbet. I know, I know, sounds yucky, but the coldness of the sorbet and the slight heat of the habanero sauce made this very complex and interesting. We also had...More

Always a good meal at Zolos. Atmosphere is a bit busy and some small tables are quite close together, but service has always been efficient and enjoyable. Bets chicken ecnhiladas in town.

A friend and I enjoyed sharing the Squash Poblano Tamales and Blackened Fish Tacos. Both dishes were well prepared and the Tamales were delicious! Gus was engaging and attentive even with the bustle of the Friday night crowd.

I love Zolo--they have the best chips and guacamole in town, their food is always fresh, flavorful and consistent. Service is always great. They really need more veg options. I love the tamales, but let's switch it up.

Varied but solid Mexican menu. A lot classier than most "Mexican" restaurants. Food is very good if not great. Typically offers some very good specials so there's something always new to try.

Definitely a place where you'll see a lot of locals. I had been here about 3 years ago for a party and it was great. This time , 2 weeks ago, some stuff was awesome, some was eh. The butternut squash soup was outstanding. I...More

I went with a friend and we shared two different brunch meals. The server was excellent and went beyond the call of duty as we divided the meals and wanted our eggs cooked differently. The food was very yummy and I liked the variety that...More
