Zocalo in Brighton - any good?

Just read a review of Zocalo in Brighton in the Improper- they gave it good marks, but they usually grade a little easily -
anyone been there ?

  1. yes. try the guac or the ceviche both of which are amazing and done tableside- they have really delicious sangrias as well. I love it!

    1. It has been a few months since we were there, but I remember enjoying the mango sangria and the chili rellenos.

      1. Yeah, when was the last time the Improper slagged anyone?

        I thought Zocalo Brighton was solid for upscale Mexican, with great guacamole, decent sangria, very good, friendly service. But I was hoping the food would wow me more: it was good but a little on the dull side. They manage the parking decently, always a problem in that neighborhood. Details of my last visit here:

        1. wow - detailed review ! I will definetly have to check it out for the guac and sangria !

          1. It's a great place, their sister restaurant is in Arlington Center. Some of the more authentic Mexican with great flavor. I think they may have the best Chile Rellenos in Boston and an awesome mole sauce.
