Description: Zacatecas is an authentic Mexican taqueria and tequila bar located in Nob Hill, Albuquerque created by Chef Mark Kiffin. Named for a region in central Mexico known for its classic, cross cultural blend of foods and recipes, Zacatecas offers a variety of soft tacos with fresh, organic ingredients and a Margarita bar featuring tequilas and beer exclusively from Mexico. Lunch and dinner menus include gourmet Mexican tacos (our shrimp tacos were featured on NM Style) served on warm Corn Tortillas, Tortas, Antojitos (appetizers), Postres (desserts), and classic Mexican specialties. Zacatecas also offers a bar menu featuring Signature Cocktails, South of the Border Specialties, Build-Your-Own Margaritas, Delicious Infusions, and an extensive selection of Tequila and Mezcal to compliment your dining experience. In addition to the food, part of the excitment at Zacatecas is the wide variety of events such as Dia de los Muertos Sugar Skull decorating, and Tequila Dinners!

I went here while exploring ABQ and they are by far the best tacos. Each taco was paired with flavors that were remarkable. I recommend this to anyone who loves tacos or wants a bite to eat in the ABQ area.

The reason we went here was our daughter works at a place like this and we wanted to see what it was like. (Where she works is in a different state) It was very airy and open as the walls were giant sliding doors that they open so it's kind of a market feeling. There are a lot of tequilas on the menu and if they don't have it you probably don't need it. We tried the creamy chicken tacos; not so much creamy and not much flavor. The carne asada tacos with grilled ribeye which were overcooked. The poblano chili stuffed with squash, corn and peppers. was very tasty as was the duck rellano which was an appetizer but was large enough for a meal. It was an anaheim chili stuffed with a duck conft. Probably the best thing we tried. So this was a been there done that kind of place. (Christa)

I haven't had a sope since my last Cabo trip. The short rib on the sope was very good. It was a little heavy on the vinegar in the garnish. Next time I will ask for them to skip it.
Staff was very friendly and attentive even though they were very busy.

Stopped in after walking around nobhill (spoiler alert, there is nothing there). Ordered the avocado cocktail, was spicy and slightly creamy. Probably favorite drink of the trip! We ordered the Taquitos to share and chips and salsa were provided. Followed the cocktail with a micheleada...should have stuck with the cocktail. Bartender was very friendly, gave us a sample of a drink she made when I inquired about the magenta color.
