$15 three-course menu (plus tax and gratuity)
You’ve signed on the dotted line and sent off your tax return once again. Now that you can check that grueling task off of your to-do list, it’s time to relax with an affordable dinner. Zocalo Restaurant and Tequila Bar will offer guests a three-course menu featuring a choice of appetizer and entree and dessert, for just $15 (plus tax and gratuity) on Thursday, April 15.
Zocalo’s tasty Tax Day menu highlights such favorite dishes as the restaurant’s famous, freshly made guacamole, a selection of four different types of tacos and vanilla-and-white chocolate flan. The full menu is outlined below.
And because Tax Day falls on a Thursday this year, Zocalo’s regular “Dine at Nine” promotion will also be in effect, featuring half off all food items after 9 p.m. (must make a reservation and mention this offer), plus pitchers of Zocalo Margaritas frozen or on the rocks for $20, pitchers of Tropical Margaritas (Blood Orange, Prickly Pear, Passion-Mango and Blueberry) for $25, and the weekly World Music Thursdays event featuring global beats by resident DJs David Chavez and Mwelwa Musambacine from 6-11 p.m.
