One of our recent favorites for Mexican food is the new Zacatecas Mexican Grill, hidden in plain sight on the end of a strip mall in Worthington Woods.
The menu at Zacatecas goes beyond a lot of the standard Americanized Mexican or Tex-Mex fare – and even includes breakfast served all day!
The space features a U-shaped bar, plus rows of booths and tables along the windows.
Start with chips and salsa, and a bowl of the homemade queso fundido (with chorizo) or the jalapeno queso.
It’s hard to go wrong with their tacos, and they offer a $2 Taco Tuesday special!
Even Tex-Mex classics like chimichangas are done well.
They offer a variety of fajitas with carnitas, shrimp, chicken, steak, tilapia, grilled cactus.
The meals come out sizzling in a cast iron platter.
The aquachile is served cold, and features shrimp in a jalapeno lime sauce with sliced avocado, cucumber, and red onions. You can order the seasoning hot or mild.
The real winner for me is the breakfast served all day. The menu covers huevos rancheros, a couple varieties of chilaquiles, carne asada con huevos, huevos revueltos (scrambled eggs), huevos a la Mexicana. Pictured above is the huevos revueltos with chorizo.
Zacatecas also uses their space for a variety of events, like live music, dance, and game nights.
