Went for Cinco de Mayo...really didn't have any specials, except Mexican beer for $2.00. Margaritas were average but the Sang-Rita was much better. The chips & salsa need some work, probably out of a bag & jar. Service was ok, while it wasn't crowded when...More

Not sure if there is new management, but it is not the place we recall from the past. Food and drink quality were markedly worse (unappetizing, tasteless, pasty, school cafeteria-type food), signature margarita was watery, tasteless lime, and could not taste any degree of alcohol...More

I don't often give scathing reviews or dog a local place. But last week's experience at Zen put me right over the edge. It was a very crowded Saturday evening and I met my sister and some old neighbors at the bar. The restaurant was...More
