Fodor's Review

Customers often have to wait for a table on Friday and Saturday evenings at this traditional Mexican restaurant that's a reliably good bet for shrimp Veracruz, pork carnitas, chile colorado (steak in ancho and pasilla chili sauce), and Mexico City–style street-food tacos. The margaritas are strong and affordable. Sister restaurant Zocalo (1801 Capitol Ave., 916/441–0303) has an indoor-outdoor dining space and is a popular launching spot

for nights out on the town.
