I called Billy the manager to speak with him because I got charged twice for one meal and he was extremely rude. He requested that I let him know the exact time I was in there so he could find out when I got charged...More

Yes, Zia Taqueria is located in a strip mall, and parking can be somewhat of a challenge, but a meal here on a Monday night was a great treat! They offer free chips & salsa, and taco specials on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, but even...More

They honestly have the best salsa and chips then any establishment in Charleston. You've got to try their corn and they're close all. Love love love

I wouldn't have noticed Zia's tucked in a strip mall but the flower shop next door highly recommended it. Terrific margaritas. Food was fresh and delicious. Service was very good. We sat in the bar area and had full service. We will definitely return before...More

We stopped in for appetizers and drinks. First, it had frozen margaritas which is a big plus for us. The margaritas were very good as was the guacamole and queso dips. They have a typical selection of lighter small plate offerings as well. We sat...More
