My wife was in the mood for Mexican, so we decided to go to Zia Taqueria. Walked in, sat down and our server took our drink order. Shortly after, chips and salsa arrived. We also ordered guacamole. My wife after a bit, decided on pork taco and a Baja fish taco. I had the quesadilla with grilled shrimp. Besides the delectable food, our server, Abigail was of note, as well. Whenever we needed anything, it was right there, without hovering. A great asset to the restaurant! We can't wait to go back.

... as in the 47th state. And, it is terrific! You might recognize some of the entrees as similar to Mexican dishes, like tacos and enchiladas and burritos, but they have a different twist. We went on a Friday night early and the place was already packed, so we sat at the bar. One of the owners (Robert) came out and explained their culinary philosophy of using "local" New Mexico farmer's chilis. The staff was friendly and informed and the food was excellent. Ask for some advice if you are uncertain. They will point you to a dish you will enjoy. Oh yeah...they have good parking, which is a little unusual at the West Asheville Restaurants. We will definitely return. Five stars well earned.

We frequent Zia (at least weekly, usually more)

I can't get enough of the beef barbacoa quesadilla and the queso with chorizo... The tacos and enchiladas are all great as well. The margaritas are excellent.. service is always prompt and friendly.

They grown a lot of their own peppers, and always have great salsas as a result. Definitely our favorite spot:)

Had a taco which was pretty good. The cup of soup made with corn meal was excellent! Good service too!

This restaurant is so much like Asheville. It is very laid back and casual. You ordered your food at the counter and they brought it to your table.

The food is kind of Mexican but with an American flavor. I thought the food was excellent. We all were thinking we look forward to coming back.

The service was very good. It was a great evening.
